Thirty Years Young

This is a special request card I made a few weeks ago for a 30th birthday. Now the birthday girl has received her card, I am sharing it with anyone interested! I remember being very hung up on turning thirty, now I’m about to turn forty… Older and wiser hey?!

30th Birthday CardI decided to go for a criss cross/ crossover style, as it’s a little bit different, and makes a change from a square. I simply join two 8×8 square cards and cut one side of each on the diagonal to make the blank. I like the way you can decorate the inside and have a little bit peeping out!

30th Birthday CardThe cute stamp is LOTV Sprinkled with Sugar and has just been retired but is already out of stock. I’m glad it’s in my stash as it’s a great little stamp. Coloured with Promarkers as always and a sprinkle of Stickle Star Dust sugar.

30th Birthday CardI printed the sentiment from my laptop and used my dancing script font.

30th Birthday CardThe flowers are a lovely selection from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprinkled with some of that sugar the mice are using. The leaf die is Spellbinders.

30th Birthday CardPretty little caramel satin ribbon that I’ve layered up and added a pearl brad (with the back snapped off!). I know the bow is the wrong way round but it looked better to me like this than straight along the diagonal! The border edge is Tonic Studios.

30th Birthday CardA Memory Box die is peeping out from inside – Bali Corner with some chocolate liquid pearls added.

30th Birthday CardThe dotty papers are from a First Edition Rose Garden 8×8″ paper pad that I got for an absolute bargain price at a craft fair. The papers in this pad are soooo gorgeous, it would be worth paying full price for this pad. The strawberry paper is from my stash.
