Not All Who Wander...


Hello there! Today I'm playing along with the current Seize the Birthday Challenge: "Metallic"

I created this card for my awesome friend, Abby, whose birthday is next week :) She's one of my favorite hiking buddies and to celebrate her special day she, her 10 year old son, and I are going on an overnight backpacking adventure. The view in those sunglasses is what we're aiming for! Send positive vibes our way!

I heat embossed the sunglasses in gold---LOVE the way they shine in real life! Then I did some ink blending on the lenses and stamped the gorgeous mountain scenery on top. The background panel is embossed with a new-to-me embossing folder called Montagnes (Simply Graphic)----definitely going to be a go-to for me----it's absolutely fabulous!!!

Thanks so much for visiting!

Have a great week!!!

  3. Looks like a perfect card for your friend! I love the sunglasses - Thanks for joining in at STB

  4. I thought I commented yesterday but must not have clicked publish. I love this card, Lisa. The scene in the glasses is great and so tiny. I like the embossing folder so much and love Simply Graphic. I've been looking for a place to purchase them in the U.S. Do you know if anyone carries them.

  5. Such a cool card, love the gold embossed sunnies and what a great scene! The embossing is perfect with the mountains. Thankyou for playing along at Seize the Birthday, Cathy x

  6. I love how you put this all together - with the clean white mountain lines in the background and the brilliant colors in the sunglasses!
