Have had quite a lot of birthdays lately. Here are photos of the last 'bunch of birthdays'.
This is another colour variation of the beautiful Wild Rose card I made earlier. On the right is a matching wallet in which I inserted a magazine subscription card. This was for our friend Sandra (Sandy) who was celebrating her 'coming of age' - old age that is, and the label of superannuant!!!
My dear friend and fellow stamper Joan also had a birthday recently so I had to do something special for her (not a copy of what we have done at stamping class) so came up with this albeit cased card - gorgeous isn't it. I was so thrilled with the way it turned out.
Joan and her husband will be going overseas to the UK shortly for six weeks - hurry back Joan, I'll miss you!
Another milestone birthday recently was my ex work colleague and friend Judith who unbelievably has just celebrated her 70th birthday. Congratulations Judith - you don't look anywhere as old as that.
Not sure why but this photo has come out very faint and I also forgot to take a photo of the inside as it is a pop-up card! Oh well ...
I was trying out techniques of brayering the background but also being able to colour the stamped image. Not quite what I wanted as I had to end up using permanent marker pens and didn't have the right colours but ... wait for it ... I think I have found a solution for next time, so just watch this space.
I also used my Cuttlebug embossing folder - Distressed Stripes on the Really Rust cardstock.
