A 60th Birthday Card

May 10, 2013

We have the pleasure of celebrating three birthday in our family on the 10th May.  My mother-in-law, my sister-in-law and my grandson Noah all share this same birthday.  Today I want to share with you the card I made for my sister-in-law.

0155I Whisper White using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached one of the Paper Doilies to the right hand side, trimming the edge.  I attached a piece of striped Twitterpated Designer Series Paper over the doily and then wrapped the piece with Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffed Ribbon.  I cut the red Twitterpated Designer Series Paper into a flag and attached it over the ribbon using dimensionals.  I cut the numbers from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Timeless Type Alphabet (retired) and used a sponge dauber to add some Island Indigo ink to them.  I punched Silver Glimmer Paper using the Small Oval Punch and also the cut three hearts using the Owl Builder punch.  I coloured one heart and one oval using Island Indigo ink and two hearts and two ovals using Ridinghood Red ink.  I attached the hearts to the ovals using Glue Dots and used another glue dot to attach the Silver Thread. 034 The “balloons” are attached to the card front using more Glue Dots and the strings are attached under the ribbon using another Glue Dot.  I attached this whole piece to scored and folded Island Indigo card.  I tied a bow in a piece of the Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon and attached it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

To decorate the inside of the card I punched one long edge of a piece of the Red Twitterpated Designer Series Paper using the Scallop Border Punch, attached it behind a piece of the striped designer series paper and wrapped it with the Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon.  The whole piece is attached to the lower edge of a piece of Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Bring on the Cake stamp set using Island Indigo ink and then attached it inside the card.

0335I love how subtle the colour is when you add ink to the Silver Glimmer Paper.  It looks so pretty.  I hope my sister-in-law likes the card.

You can purchase supplies to recreate this card from my online store.

Bye for now, Kris.
