Mortal Instruments fangirl birthday

Sharing something a little different with you today....with no stamping (gasp). I love to make cards that reflect the interests or personality of the person they're for. One of Cara's friends really loves books & especially the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, so I decided to try making her a Mortal Instruments themed birthday card. This is how it turned out.
Since the theme was so specific, I used my e-cutter to design & cut the main black panel - which features the Angelic rune symbol & font used in the books (Pterra). I've popped the cut panel over champagne glimmer paper & spritzed with champagne mist shimmer spray so it's very sparkly! Click on the pic to see a clearer, bigger version.
On the inside, I've added more runes & printed message (I've erased her name from the pic). Normally I'd write or stamp this, but I wanted to use the Pterra font again.
I made a matching envelope & used the positive image from the cut-panel to seal the envie.
I think the birthday girl shadowhunter enjoyed her card, which makes me happy too.
Back next time with a stamped teen birthday card.
Inky wishes, Di
