70th Birthday Card

I have had a nightmare with my blog in the last couple of days. I deleted photos from my phone and little did I know I would delete my photos from my blog!!

I have had to crack on with some cards today because I have birthdays coming up as well as Christmas.

This card is a little out of my comfort zone but my Mother-in-law is 70 on Sunday and this is her favourite colour and she loves butterflies.


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with a turquoise?? and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Xcut embossing folder.  I have used Creative Expressions Gilding Polish to enhance the embossing. I have used a set by Sue Wilson to cut the frames. I have used a Presscut nesting set of ovals for the sentiment. I have cut the numbers using Tattered Lace dies. I have used Lea'bilites dies to cut the flowers, I have used an embellishment from Chloe Creative Cards to complete the flower. I have completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Dad 70th Birthday





A 70th birthday card for a special Dad. I have covered my 8x8in white card with gingham paper from Anna Marie. Using orange card I cut a rectangle to add the image from a Hunky Dory little book. I die cut a small circle and added the number 70, I cut them using Tattered Lace dies. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate die and cut the next in the nesting set in orange card. The banner is cut using a Sue Wilson die.

Card for an owl lover



I have made an 8x8in twisted easel card. I had these Hunkydory papers and topper in my stash and they are ideal for the girly, owl loving recipient. I have used patterned paper on the top and bottom and use a topper on the easel. I die cut flowers with Xcut dies and added an  embellishment to match the other elements. I have used foam pads on this so it will act as a stopper for the top of the card.
