I am sharing a card I made for a dear friend who is turning 50 today.. The BIG 5 0 ...
I knew how I wanted her card to look.. but I tell you I am so glad I started this early this morning.. I have Bible study today so need to get this made.. as her birthday dinner is tonight..
I first tried laying it out side fold then top fold and kept added my elements (not glued) to the card but it just didn't look right so I kept working it and working it till I had what I wanted or close to it.. I took a photo with my phone just for reference cause I knew my mind was a mess.
I took Ranger ink and created the background and spritzed with water. I stamped Happy at the top from Simon Says. I die cut the 50 from Paper Trey Ink dies and the birthday from My Favorite Things die. I used the My Favorite Things flowers (I wanted summer flowers since her birthday is summer) and stamped with Altnew ink and die cut the images out. I adhered all of the pieces to the base and added Nuvo drops.. I think I over killed it with the Nuvo. (hope they are dry enough and don't get squished) I added some Spectrum Noir glitter pen to the 50 and the large butterscotch flower center and the small blue flower. I layered it on a black card stock and then layered it all to white card base..
.. So at first I had happy die cut and TH for the 50 th..die and a larger birthday.. So stamping Happy and getting rid of the TH and using a smaller birthday and layering it over the 50 made the card work.. Don't give up if you have an idea.. just keep working it and you'll create an awesome card.
I am done, got it posted and now off to Bible Study.. Tonight it's going to be a great birthday dinner and time with my friend and all of her other friends.. Happy Birthday Amy!!
