Today I have some of Gloria's wonderful work to share with you. She has two projects for you - a layout and a card. I call Gloria the Queen of Cards, and you can see why. But first up is her layout, Gloria has done one using Graphic 45's Primer range of print papers.

I love they way she has made a frame around her page to set off her photo, and what a cute photo it is.
Our little Girl Title phrase (IDP0025)

Gloria has used one of our titles for her layout, along with some of our Girl Silhouettes.

Shapes Girl Silhouette (IDS0023)

I love the way Gloria has made paper rosette flowers and placed her chipboard shapes and letter on top.
Gloria has inked her chipboard and embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it a shinny finish.

What a lovely layout for a very special Little Girl, one to be treasured for always.

For her card, Gloria made a Happy Birthday Card with a eclectic feel to it. I love the way Gloria has tied all the elements of her card together.

Just look at the finish Gloria has got on her butterfly. To get this finish, you will need to ink your chipboard, then emboss it with clear embossing powder. To get a thick layer, you need to build up the embossing powder layer by layer and heating it between.
