My neighbour asked me if I had time to make a birthday card for her mum and of course I had time for it. She told me her mum was turning 80, her favourite colour is pink, she loves shopping and crime stories.
I thought crime stories was difficult to fit in with the other topics and decided to use the Beautiful you stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I also used a couple of retired Stampin’ Up! products (unfair I know!) as it just went really well together.
The main colour for this card is Blushing Bride by Stampin’ Up! It’s a beautiful soft pink and gives the card a very feminine look. I coloured the lady by using a Blender pen to pick up colour from the blushing bride ink pad. I then covered her dress in glossy accent, you can also use the fine-tip glue pen from Stampin’ Up! for this, then I used tweezers to add sequins to the dress with.
I used my Cricut to cut the numbers with and I believe it was with the Story Book cartridge. I mainly use my Cricut for scrapbooking but it is also good for the odd job here and there when making cards.
I had lots of fun making this card and I love the way it turned out. My neighbour’s mum loved the card as well. It makes me happy knowing the receiver appreciated the effort I put into making this card, a whole lot of LOVE!
