Today’s share is the 70th Birthday card I made for my mom last month. I had just gotten my Occasions catalog preorder and fell in love with the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and wanted to break it in. As a demonstrator we get the opportunity to order and play with items from the Occasions Catalog that will be going live on January 3rd. Yay! This design is what I call a Double-W Fold card (it is an extended size card). It is 3-1/4″ tall x 22″ wide.
As it was her 70th birthday I wanted to give her 70 candles and remembered the set of candles die in the Window Box Thinlits Die Set. I set out die cutting candles and was able to fit 35 candles onto each Melon Mambo band. Woohoo! Yes……I eyeballed the candles. They are in groups of 5 so that made it not too difficult. (wink, wink) To add more color and shine I filled in the empty spaces (folds) with 1″ Painted With Love SDSP strips.
Here is a close up of the inside letters. They were cut from both Gold Foil and Glimmer. The Glimmer adds just a touch of sparkle. Who doesn’t need more sparkle to go with their shine. (giggle)
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day!
