Hi everyone, my neighbour is celebrating her 80th birthday today. She’s been a lovely friend to me since I moved into the area and I wanted to create a sweet card to give her in celebration of this milestone birthday.
I had decided to use the Two-Tone Flora bundle and was searching through Instagram for ideas when I came across a fantastic card by Mikaela Titheridge and knew then I wanted to make a similar card. Check out Mikaela’s website as she is so talented! I love everything she makes!
For my card, I started with a card base made from Sahara Sand. I trimmed another piece of Sahara Sand to size and then embossed it with a new Basics 3D Embossing Folder (coming in March 2023). This embossing folder has become a fast favourite of mine.
I stamped a number of images using stamps from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set and then die-cut them with the coordinating Two-Tone Flora die set. I always stamp more than I think I will need so that I can play around with the placement. I think it makes it easier, in this instance, to have more options than to have to stop and stamp more images.
Using the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Amazing Year stamp set, I stamped in Versamark on Basic White cardstock. After gold heat-embossing the sentiment, I trimmed it to size.
The “80” was die cut from Gold Foil Sheets using the Alphabet A La Mode die set. Initially, I was going to die cut it having been backed with Foam Adhesive Sheets but I realised that It would be hanging off my image so that wouldn’t work. Otherwise, I totally recommend adding the adhesive prior to die-cutting such narrow pieces.
Once all the pieces were die-cut, I played around with the position of everything for quite some time before sticking everything down. Most things were adhered directly to the card front. I popped up the large flowers and then adhered the 8,0 and sentiment directly to these flowers and tucked some small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals under the overhanging parts. The main focal panel was also popped up onto the card front.
I finished the card by adding a few sequins from the Gold Faceted Adhesive-Backed Sequins pack.
Here’s the card…
Now all that is left to do is give this card to my neighbour for her birthday! I hope she likes it!
