Birthday Bling!

Sunday, 15 May 2011

It was one of my crafty friend’s 30th birthday, so I wanted to make her card special. As one of my new loves are twisted easel cards, I thought I’d go for one of those



The image is a Whipper Snapper stamp imaginatively named “Little girl with dotted present”. Coloured with copics. The sentiment is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.


The banners are stamps from a Waltzing Mouse set called Bitty Banners. The papers are from MME Tickled Pink pad. The big diamante 30 is from a local craft supplier.


The sentiment on the inside (which is also the outside when the card is open!) is a Stampin’ Up! stamp surrounded by another WM stamp from the Bitty Banners set. I made a rosette by sewing up one edge of a length of ribbon and pulling it tight and sewing it closed.


This card fits the following challenges;
