Good morning crafters. I hope your week is going well so far. I can confirm that the coconut chocolate cake I shared in my last post was delightful. And I have put on half a stone just by looking at it ;0)
I have a quick 40th Birthday Card to share with you today. It must be a week of 40th celebrations. I made this for my Mum to give a work colleague.
I was looking for inspiration from my stamp cupboard and settled on the beautiful Swallowtail stamp. I love this large butterfly image and I haven't had it out of its box in a fair few months. This is what I came up with.
I stamped the main image on to Naturals Ivory cardstock using Rose Red ink. I then cut around the butterfly edge to give the shaped front layer of the card.
I created the birthday sentiment with the Memorable Moments stamp set. I embellished with Basic Pearls (the smaller I coloured with my markers).
For the corner stamping I used Blushing Bride and Encore Gold ink with the butterflies from the Perpetual Birthday stamp set and the roses from Painted Petals. I used my Encore Gold ink pad to add daubered gold around all the card edges. It gives a lovely antique-y vintage feel to the card.
