*Dies R Us - Drum & spellbinders die(inside)

This is a b-day card for my oldest son who's a musician, among other things. He comes from a long line of musicians. My grandfather played in the Philadelphia Symphony on all the woodwinds, my grandmother a pianist, my dad was a drummer, my husband was a percussionist, (congas, etc.) I played keyboards and sang.
He was also accepted into the University of Washington's aeronautics/astronautics program which will start back up in the fall and wants to work at NASA when he's done.
I wanted to make him some kind of space card, but I didn't have anything space related in my stash. Maybe next year when he graduates.


It's kinda hard to take pics of this mirror paper without it reflecting everything. You have to take it at an angle.

I don't know why I have such a hard time making Christmas cards in the middle of summer, but I do. It just feels off to me. With that said, I made this silver Christmas card for a couple of Christmas in July challenges.


I just love these Marianne die/embossing folders, they're so intricate, elegant and pretty. And I've been wanting to use this candle die for a long time.

I'm not sure what to call this particular fold, but I just love it. It's like a step card with an inside. Maybe an Inside Step Card, or maybe not.
Anyway, I picked up this awesome card kit from Hunkydory called Twilight Under the Sea that I got from Paper Wishes. Just Gorgeous!! All the images are  amazing and the colors are so vibrant. These pictures don't do it justice.
I added some purple glitter jewel dazzles(dots) and pink glitter borders for some bling!
