Happy Birthday Mum

January 2, 2017

Thought I would pop in and share with you the card I made for my Mum’s birthday which is today.  It’s a special one this year as she is turning 80.  I was inspired by a beautiful card shared on pinterest by Sylwia Schreck.  Sylwia created her card for the display boards at Onstage Dusseldorf.  Of course I did change the greeting but am truly grateful that Sylwia shared her gorgeous card.

I embossed “happy birthday” from the Rose Wonder stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Versamark ink, which I sprinkled with Silver Embossing Powder and then heat set. mums-80th-2 I cut Silver Foil Paper using the So Detailed Thinlits Dies and attached it to the stamped Whisper White card.  I will let you in on a little secret that was shared recently by a demonstrator whose name I have forgotten (but thank you).  She attached strips of Tear and Tape across the width of the  back of the card piece that is going to be cut with a detailed framelit.  Once the piece is cut you remove the backing and you are able to attach the piece without worrying about leaving a trail of liquid glue on your card.  Anyway, once the framelit piece was attached I wrapped the Whisper White card with the Very Vanilla 1/4 ” Satin Ribbon to cover the bottom of the die cut piece.  I attached two pieces of the same Vanilla Ribbon in a circle using Glue Dots and then attached them to each other and the ribbon to create a double bow effect.mums-80th-3  The gorgeous Falling in Love Embellishment is attached to the centre of the ribbon using Glue Dots to finish off the bow.

To decorate the inside I cut Silver Foil Paper using the border from the Flourish Thinlit Dies.  I attached the border across the bottom of Whisper White card.  I cut the numbers from Silver Foil Paper using the Timeless Type Alphabet Dies (retired).  The numbers are attached to the centre of the Whisper White card.

One of the things I think is kind of interesting about this card is that it mixes Whisper White card with Very Vanilla ribbon and I think it works really well, don’t you?

Bye for now,
