Fabulous 50!

My sister’s 50 today and here’s the card I made for her:

Scalloped Circle Easel Card

I decided a pretty scalloped circle easel card would suit the occasion.

The base is purple card from my stash and I cut the scallops using my Pazzles Inspiration Die Cutting Machine.

The paper mattes are from the K&Company “Life’s Tapestry” paper block.  The paper used for the front is glittered and the paper for the base is foiled.

I cut the numbers 5 and 0 from glittered paper and “Fabulous” is cut from purple shimmer vellum using my Pazzles (thank goodness I’m lucky enought to have this!).

I used the same foiled paper for the circle on the back of the card, and created a ring of butterflies using Photoshop Elements 8 and a digital butterfly image from designer Aimee Harrison from the kit “Japan Kites”.  I always make a wreath/ring of flowers or butterflies, etc to add my own “made by” stamp.  Font used in this instance is “Piranesi It BT”.  I cut the circle using a Pyrex bowl and this covered the prongs of the gold brad which I glittered using Ranger Ice Stickles glitter glue!

50 is an age to embrace rather than to fear!
