One of my colleagues requested a special card for a University of McGill graduate.
The image is a tracing from the University of McGill's coat of arms fussy cut from DCWV Glitzy Glitter stack. The bird is layered on Worldwin Silver Ore Petallics, more DCWV Glitzy Glitter and a shimmery red of unknown origin die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 20. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. The embellishments are Crafts.
I think my idea for this card was so much better than the execution. I wanted to use McGill's red and the bird. My colleague wanted glitter. The two don't work as well together as I thought they would. The generous use of embellishments helped but ... then I thought rounding the corners would help even more but ... I don't use the Spellbinders Nestabilities all that often because I find they look strange when I get the cards finished. Whenever I see cards with Nestabilities, I think they're wonderful. I can't figure out why my don't.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
