18th Birthday card for a girl who isn’t girlie!

Have just made this birthday card for a friend’s daughter, who happens to be like my daughters in the fact that they just don’t like pink!  The funny thing is, they’re all “scientists”!  My eldest daughter, in particular, went through a stage of she would wear anything so long as it was black!  She got past 18 and then began to appreciate pretty things.  Anyway, here’s the card:

I just had to add the purple gems to add some sparkle!

  • Textured pearlescent purple card
  • White 300gsm glossy card
  • Tiny flower brads (purple)
  • Sakura Ball Sign Tiara Glitter pen – purple

Father’s Day Easel Card

I am blessed to have lovely, supportive parents who have always surrounded me with love, affection and encouragement.    They just love to receive cards I make… you can really see the anticipation in their faces as they open the envelopes.

The card I made for my mummy for Mother’s Day this year can be seen in an earlier post.  I made the following card for my Pop for Father’s Day which was on 16 June this year in the UK.

Using my Pazzles Inspiration Electronic Die Cutter, I cut 2 scallop-edged 19cm squares from 300gsm white card and inked edges with Brilliance Ink Pad “Peacock”. I then attached these to another piece of card which I had folded so that when the card is closed, the scalloped squares match perfectly.

Digital Elements:

  • Diamonds paper from the “SK8R” kit by Amanda Carlson
  • Image of snoozing man from internet (sorry don’t know designer)

Fonts used:

  • Happy – “Algerian”
  • Father’s Day – “Cast Iron”
  • Pop – “”
  • Relax & enjoy your day! “”

I also used some silver glitter card from my stash to matte the paper and images and star shaped brads which I coated with Ice Stickles glitter glue.

Quick Birthday Card

I needed to make a quick card for my Aunt’s birthday, so as I love Pink Petticoat‘s designs (so clean, simple, elegant), I came up with this…

From Pink Petticoat’s “Marshmallow” pattern pack printed on 300gsm white card and trimmed to a square 14.85cm.  I added the “Happy Birthday” greeting using sticky foam squares for dimension (I believe the word art designer was TLC – sorry if it was someone else).  Because of the flash you can’t see that I have put foam squares behind it, although you can see it in the side-on view.

I created the insert by cropping the Marshmallow design to form top and bottom borders and then added a simple wish “…enjoy your day” (again, sorry I don’t know who the designer is).
