Design Team Reunion: Francine Vuilleme

Hi everyone! Francine Vuillème here! I’m so excited to join the birthday celebration and the design team reunion! What a wonderful idea! I was a DT member in 2016 and I still remember how happy and excited I was to join the team! 

Thanks so much Danielle for having me for this celebration and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are such a kind and beautiful woman (inside and out). I’m proud to be part of the N&T family and I’m honored to guest for you today! Good luck for the next years of this fabulous crafty adventure! 

For this event, I created this card:

I used the pirate set called Yo Ho Ho. I love all characters in this set and I thought the flag would be perfect for a birthday sentiment. I masked the pirate skull on the flag and I then stamped the Happy Birthday text that I found in the Beach Day set. I colored the pirate and cut him out with scissors. I added jeans texture to the pants using a piece of fabric. I sponged the front panel of a top-folded card base with yellow Distress ink using a blending tool. I adhered the image with foam pads to the card base as well as a sandy hill that I die cut from Kraft cardstock. I glued tiny stars and sequins here and there for a festive look. To finish off my card, I added Wink of Stella clear shimmer over the rainbow sweater. 
I hope you enjoyed this project! Have wonderful day and happy crafting!
