Pink and Black 18th

Hi, my daughter actually asked me....Mum, to make a card for her. :-)  Our daughter is arty enough to make her own cards but has gone through a stage of handmade is a little daggy.  Now she is working and things cost, I think her view is changing. 

Anyways, she had already wrapped the presents with this wonderful paper and ribbon, so that was the starting place of my card.  I had just received my order of a variety of coloured glitter card stocks from Blue Edge Crafts and I knew that there was one that matched the ribbon perfectly.  Next I had to try out a die that I had borrowed from a friend, sadly I have now returned the beautiful die and can't remember the name.  I hand cut the number 18, first printing the number on the rear of the card stock as a guide....and I actually remembered to mirror the number before printing.  The stars are punched.  Finished with a white happy birthday sticker from Sticker Store.

I have been busy putting together my easel 3D papertole christmas cards.  10 assembled now and ready to add some decorative stickers.  Only 14 to go.  :-)

Thanks for dropping by.

  5. It is stunning, I mean the card and what justice you have done to the classy gift wrap. SUPER co-ordianation. Good that your girl is realizing the value of money.
    Sorry for being tardy but life has been busy and we were away to Hong Kong for the autumn break and it was really nice. Thank God for that.

    I am still to feet totally settled here though our home front is functioning well. On the school front, it is a for profit school and I can feel the commercialism in ways more than one. It is the first time in a for profit school and it is quite an experience - with both sides to it.
