So tonight I got to finish the birthday card, which I can share with you all as my friend does not follow my blog...atleast not that I know of! She is too busy to spend time on a computer and does a lot with her girls.
Here is the card that I finished for her, photo taken from a few angles as my light box is not yet set up and I could only take these shots in this basic light...
I thought the occasion deserved some special DSP and so I broke open my beautiful Mocha Morning Specialty DSP pack and used the lovely black flocked piece as my background on Basic Black cardstock. I coloured the Apothecary Art image with my Stampin' Write Markers (Real Red and Glorious Green) and because I just wanted a small black edge I fussy cut the main image and then used the same sized Labels Collection Framelit die to create a small border edge.
I used my Elementary Elegance stamp set for the greeting, inking the words separately with my Basic Black marker to split the words so I could add a subtle '50th' using some Making Memories number stamps and a Tiny Tags Punch to add some emphasis. Some beautiful Black Satin Ribbon added the finishing touch.
As this was a special card and I had used black as my card base I decorated the inside to add a special message from me.
I used the coordinating flourish from Elements of Style stamp set to follow the theme on the inside and again used a Labels Collection Framelit die to create the inside panel.
Now it is time for me go find my bed as I have a full day of appointments tomorrow at work and I need my
Thanks for stopping by.
