50th Birthday in Orange & Gold

A friend celebrated their 50th Birthday last week.

For their card, I chose a combination of Pale Papaya and Mango Melody, with Basic White and Gold accents.

I chose to make a larger square card. Mine is 14cm x 14cm.

Using the FREE SAB Silver & Gold 6×6 DSP for the background, I made a colour flare from the centre using a Blending Brush and ink. This gives a touch of colour to the background without losing the white.

On top of this sit cut out flowers and leaves in Basic White Cardstock and Gold Foil Sheets. The shapes are cut from the Artistic Dies and Flowers of Home Dies.

These were layered, along with a swoosh of coordinating In Color Ribbon.

The Alphabest Stamp set provides the ’50’, on a cut out from the All That Dies. This is then given an orange edge using the Blending Brush.

Tiny Flowers are stamped using the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and cut out using the matching Artistic Dies.

These are given a touch of sparkle using Wink of Stella and Iridescent Rhinestone centres.

I also made an envelope for the card, but didn’t take a picture of that!

Don’t forget that there are only a few more weeks left of Sale-A-Bration, so not much time left to grab those FREE products on qualifying orders. Only available while stocks last.

Christmas Card Club 2022 – July

This is the second project from this year’s Christmas Card Club.

Inspiration for this project is taken from page 13 of the July-December Mini Catalogue.

July’s project uses the FREE SAB Gold & Silver 6×6 DSP, plus some of the new In Colors for 2022-2024. Additional colours are Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Basic White.

Don’t forget that SAB runs until the end of August and items are only available while stocks last.

For this card, all of the die-cut shapes are from the Spruced Up Outlines Dies. The sentiment is from the coordinating Spruced Up Stamp Set. These are available as a Bundle with a discount, so be sure to take advantage of the offer.

Using the piece of SAB DSP, this creates a look of wallpaper. A length of In Color Metallic Ribbon hides the join.

Each outline shape has matching inner pieces. To give the look of wrapping paper, each present has an inner cut from In Color 6×6 DSP.

The tree and presents are then arranged, with the front most one on Dimensionals.

A length of In Color Baker’s Twine creates a ‘bunny ears’ bow off to the side. Check out this video for more details on how to tie this bow.

Finally, a star, with Wink of Stella coating tops the tree, with others across the project.

If you like this project for July, and the previous project from June, why not join me for Christmas Card Club in August. Booking closes on 9th August.
