In the past two months, I have had four 60th birthday cards and one 100th birthday card to make. The new Occasions catalogue has a new bundle on page 10, called number of years. I have used either the stamps or the dies on all but one card! If you make a lot of birthday cards, this is a must have in my opinion!
I killed two birds with one stone when I made the final aged birthday card I needed, by fitting it in with the fabulous sketch at Global Design Project
this week. Everyone on the team has their own interpretation of the sketch, so hop over and see what they have come up with to inspire you. I always take sketches literally - I just can't change them!
For this card, I used a window sheet overlay, which I repeatedly stamped a sentiment from Suite Sayings with White Staz On ink. I then used the Balloon Celebration to create the repetitive background and balloon embellishment on my card. I sponged in a cloud background before stamping the "60" over the top and framing it all in the circular window behind the window sheet. I enjoy making cards for people I know and the birthday boy was delighted with his one off, original card!
I look forward to having you join us for this great sketch challenge and seeing what your interpretation of the sketch will be!

Hi Paula. The stamping of the White Staz-On onto the window sheet is a fantastic idea. And I love the way you have overlapped the balloon stamp to create the backgroung of the Night of Navy mat. So clever! D xReplyDelete

Your card really captures the spirit of the challenge! The white stamped look over the blue is very appealing.ReplyDelete
