Last week a co-worker had her 65th birthday. We surprised her with lunch, a cake and flowers. She was totally surprised and enjoyed all our birthday wishes. Her favorite color is fuchsia so I set about creating her a card. This is the Happy 65th Birthday card that I made for her.
I thought it would be fun to recreate the Triple-W fold card I made for my mom’s 70th birthday. [You can check it out here.] This time I used the Springtime Foils Sale-a-bration Designer Paper. I was excited when I opened the package and found the four different designs on glossy cardstock with silver, gold and copper foil embossing. I will miss this paper terribly……embossing without all the work. Love it!
To achieve this Fucia color I brayered the glossy paper with the In Color Berry Burst. [TIP: After brayering I wiped with a paper towel to remove the excess ink on the foil stripes. Drumroll please………….
The base is two layers of Vellum. You know I love me some Vellum. Lol! After placing the Silver Foil strips at the folds I adhered the interior W-fold bands, then applied the Silver Foil with off set Silver Glimmer letters. At this point the interior folds looked empty. So I thought about it awhile and finally had my a-ha moment to insert stacked presents. Fabulous!
The presents are Glossy Cardstock pieces that I also brayered with Berry Burst and glued into squares. They are topped with narrow strips of Silver Foil and embossed Silver Foil bows from the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Monday and get inspired to stamp by today’s Happy 65th Birthday card.
