Quick cards.


Morning everyone, I have two cards that came together really quickly. I had a play around with some metallic paints I have, they look so pretty so made these backgrounds, the circular one is water colour paper, I bought the pack from Temu and its great quality.

Edged the circle with gold paste, sorry it hardly shows on the pics. The birthday die, also brushed with the gold paste,  is from Temu and the happy was a freebie years ago. I layered up on navy card first to make it pop.

Side view, yep, I like this one lol.

Next up same as different shape

Sadly I regret the position of the happy, I should have thought it out better, but hey-ho.

I think thats that again.
Thanks so much for all the comments on my last posts, it means alot. 
Enjoy your day, sadly we have rain again after the lovely weekend, thems the breaks. xxx

Two fabulous CAS birthday cards Janett, great to have in your stash as they're suitable for anyone. I love the backgrounds you created, so good to relax, have a play and see what happens. I like to make several at a time and keep them until the right card comes along!
Was in London all day yesterday...guess what, it was raining there too!

Amazing backgrounds, Janette! I love the way they glisten and what a fun birthday die, love that font.

Lisa said...

Your metallic paint backgrounds turned out beautifully! The gold accents add a touch of elegance, especially with the layered navy cardstock. Despite your regret about the happy's position on the second card, both creations exude charm and warmth.

Hi Janette, two lovely cards and I can just imagine the sheen the metallic paint gives on the backgrounds.
Just had a little catch up and I'm pleased Carla is doing well, must have been a very stressful time for you.
Thanks for all your comments over the last couple of months(lots of health issues, but hopefully on the mend now and my blogging/crafting will improve)
