Good Luck Card

This card was my 1st commision!!  A professor who works in my department knows I make cards and requested a good luck card for a student who is going to be in a national pagent.  I was super nervous, I've never had a card request before!

Here are the details:
  • Tiara from Hannah Montana Cartridge cut 3 times at 3 inches
  • Shiny mirrored paper from The Paper Company for top layer of tiara
  • Coredinations Gemstones White Glove paper for other 2 layers
  • Coredinations Core Couture Blue Diamond paper for bottom layer (click to see it sparkles)
  • Die Cuts with a View for 2nd blue layer
  • Martha Stewart Loopy Edge punch set
  • Good Luck Stamp--not sure of maker
  • Silver embossing powder
  • Silver cording
  • Pop Dots for between layers
  • iRock Gems on the tiara
I have not stamped and embossing a long time and I just love the look!  But, I embossed after I put the cording on and it heated it and made it thin.  So I had to replace part of it.  So be careful!  The above picture shows the dimension of the tiara a bit of the bottom glittery paper.  I adhered the bottom tiara cut to the paper with Zip Dry Glue--that stuff is great!

The card was a hit--Yay!


  1. Helen, thanks again for taking on this challenge. Sara loves her card! You are so creative!

  2. Great job. Looks great!

    I get nervous too when I get a request too. It almost blocks my creative juices.
