Big B


Here is a card I hand made for my brother's birthday. Although the big glittery B could stand for brother, or birthday it's actually his first initial. He said he appreciated the time it took to make - so I was of course very glad that he liked it. Hope you enjoyed your sushi brother!
To make the card I used metallic paper (and the card and envelope do match, my camera made the colors appear a little different in the photo) ribbon, cut the back off of a glittery brad, the silver designs were embossed, and cut out paper shapes to layer, as well as that big chipboard B.

Hi Gina,

I hope you and your family had a nice time celebrating your brothers birthday. I bet your brother enjoyed his card, especially since it was made with love by his sister :)

What a great card for your brother! I love the potential triple meaning for the "B" :)

I also liked your Mona Lisa animations. I watched them at YouTube and liked the close up better, but both were just great!
