An Extra Special Birthday Card with Stampin' Up!

An Extra Special Birthday Card with Stampin' Up!


I had a super special card to make a couple of weeks ago - a birthday card for my lovely Mum who was 70 - she was obviously an older Mum when she had me as I can't possible be 40 something now ;-)  

I wasn't really sure where I was going with this but like the way it came together in the end. The colours I used are Real Red, Pool Party, Crumb Cake & Whisper White.

I actually stamped the number 70 using the Morning Post Numbers stamp set which is now only available on My Digital Studio. Today is from the Geometrical stamp set inked using a Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker - I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line it all up. It was then popped onto a tag cut with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch

The background is a piece of Whisper White Core'dinations (retiring) embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and sponged with Crumb Cake ink. I then layered up lots of elements - a Tea Lace Paper Doily, a floral piece of paper from the Fresh Prints DSP Stack and a slide cut using On Film Framelits. The sentiment is from Morning Meadow - an exclusive hostess stamp set.

I finished the card with Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon (retiring), Real Red Stitched Grosgrain (retiring), Linen Thread and Pearl Basic Jewels.


I know Mum loved it and hope you do too - she did tell me she has kept every card my brother and I have ever given her - that will be a big box!
