21 Glitter owl flip it

Today over on CCEE the challenge CCEE 1422 is to make a card with a number, it could be designer paper, die cut or embossed numbers.
For my card I used die cut numbers, cut out of sticker sheet and dipped into silk microfine glitter.
For the base card, I used Sizzix Majestic flip its die, cut one out of white card and once out of shimmer sheetz from Eilzabeth Craft designs, the shimmer sheetz was then embossed and sanded before being attached to the card stock.

Shimmer sheetz are thin sheetz that are able to be embossed, die cut, sanded and inked depending on the look you want to achieve.
The owl is cottage cutz harvest owl die, cut in black then placed on a sticker sheet and covered with microfine glitter, then coloured with copic pens and popped up with foam dots. I have also added coordinating dies and ribbon.

Here is another photo of the front at a different angle, the shimmer sheetz change colour depending on the light.

Have a great day

  4. Fantastic flip your papers and that great owl! I'm sure Frances also loves that owl! Good design and colors!

  5. I had never heard of the shimmer sheets, but I love the way it looks on your card -- the sanding really brings out the embossing. Cute owl and great colors!

  6. What fab color!! I love your happy owl and the die cuts. Makes turning 21 all the more fun. Great job, Maryann!

  7. Maryann.....I can tell that you are a fan of the fancy fold/die fold cards like Hoots (Frances).....and wow did you make an impressive one here......that owl looks positively glad to have you playing with us.....hugs

  8. The embossed front is amazing - and I know all too well how hard it is to photo that shimmer paper. I never realised it could be embossed so effectively - I'll have to try that! Cool owl, too - I'd love to see all the glitter and shimmer in real life.
