90th birthday card

Today I am sharing the 90th birthday card which I was asked to make recently. I wanted something fresh and cheerful whilst also celebrating an amazing milestone birthday.  Again I turned to my tried and trusted Craftwork Cards and their new collection Velvet Plum.

I used a frame from the Craftwork Cards Essentials pack and I placed a selection of the flowers that were with the collection and some which I die cut using Sizzix dies in my Big Shot.  The combination of pre cut and  making my own flowers worked very well on the larger of the frames and I placed a coordinating piece of Velvet Plum underneath to compliment the design. I used another piece of the paper to cut out the number 90 using my Cricut Mini.  I placed some acrylic diamonds in various flowers and around the frame and some smaller crystals on the special wishes sentiment.  I looked at the card again and felt that it needed something else so I decided to make 2 bows using my bow maker and placed them top and bottom of the card and I felt it was complete then.

I think this has made a very pretty and effective card design.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog and I hope you will stop by again soon
