100th Birthday Card
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you for coming over to have a look.
One of the other clients of the carers we have was celabrating her 100th birthday and the boss asked me to make her a card to send (don’t know who or any more details than that as the carers are always very proffesional and don’t talk about other client’s details) – I guess I might find out if the 100th birthday gets mentioned in the Tivy Side.
What I Did
I scored and folded in half a sheet of pink cardstock to make the base card. I used a corner rounder punch to round the bottom corners of the card.
I set up the greeting in the Canvas workspace and foiled it onto pearlescent paper using my Scan’N’Cut.
The foiled greeting was then trimed and the corners rounded before being stuck to pink cardstock, trimmed to leave a border and again the corners rounded.
I cut a rectangle of blue cardstock at a size that would leave a border of around 1cm all round from the size of the matted greeting. I again rounded the corners of this layer.
The layer was stuck directly to the card front and then the matted greeting was stuck to the blue mat using foam tape.
I took a flower punch and punched out a lot of flowers from pink vellum. These were slightly shaped and then stuck two togetherf so that the petals were interspaced. Once the two layers had dried I stuck the flowers in a random pattern around the left, bottom, corner of the card. I finished off by putting dots of green Nuvo drops in each flower centre and drops of pink Nuvo drops in between the flowers.

My current bad health issues, on top of my usual health problems, mean that I haven’t been crafting as much as usual lately, but I do have a small number of projects on the go. You should find some more posts about these makes popping up here on my blog before the end of the month.
