70th Birthday Celebration!

Happy Sunday and welcome back to my blog.

I had a friend recently ask me if I could make a card for her Mum’s 70th birthday. My response, “of course!” I love creating custom orders, most of my customers give me free range to create whatever I like which satisfy’s my creative needs!

I decided on a fancy fold for this card, a double z card, so easy yet so effective. These cards are so much fun to make and still fits in a normal sized envelope.

I used the Cake Soiree Suite for this card because my customer makes the most amazing cakes and I just knew she would make her Mum a fabulous cake for her birthday! If you are local to the Bunbury Area and you are needing a cake made for a special occasion, make sure you get in contact with the talented Fiona from Dardanup Delights.

Marina Mist cardstock and Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper were used for this card. If you love Marina Mist and this DSP then make sure you get your hands on it before the end of May or until stocks last because both these are on the retirement list. You can view the retirement list for the Occasions Catalogue here and for the Annual Catalogue here. 

Also on the retirement list are the Number of Years stamp set and the matching dies! I know….crazy right?! I am so glad I own both of these items but if you don’t they are a MUST have for your craft stash. Make sure you get yours before they sell out!

I had so much fun putting the icing on the cake on this card using the silver embossing paste. I love this stuff! It gives a special extra look and just perfect for the icing on this very special cake!

You might be wondering how I coloured in the flowers on the cake. I used our blender pens with our ink pads. One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is there are so many different ways to colour in. The blender pens are a great colouring option, just pick up some ink from the ink pad cover and colour in.

If you have a reason to order a special card I would love to hear from you. So nice to receive a handmade one of a kind card.

If you would like any more information at all about custom orders, classes, products or even joining my team I would love to hear from you.

I hope you all have an amazing working week hopefully with some crafting time!
