SPEC - tacular Birthday

    Here is a card with a bit of trash. I used a toilet paper roll to construct an eyeglass case. I first used a brayer to flatten the roll, then painted 3 coats of white Gesso as a primer. I don't know the name of the paper, because it is (was) a scrap. The bottom is closed using a strip of score tape. 

     The spectacles are made using a Silhouette cut file -- "Glasses New Years" by Daniela Moscone. The 2016 is removed but I thought the stars were a nice touch, so I left them. The designer paper on the glasses is "Coral Mica" by Paper Studio. I bought this ages ago (don't remember why) and finally found a use for it.
     The background is Shabby Polka Dot Background using embossing folder and Hickory Smoke distress ink.
     I die cut the letters from a Elizabeth Craft die (Alphabet 1 Caps) and stamped the sentiment on the inside using Gina K's "Massive Messages".
