My local newspaper ran an ad today asking for 100 birthday cards for a local woman turning 100 on Feb. 5th so I thought why not send her a homemade card.
My card base is Pretty Peacock, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. I then layered another Pretty Peacock that is 4 x 5/14, but I ran it through the big shot using the Subtle Embossing folder. My DSP is from the Perennial Essence DSP and it measure 3 3/4 x 5. Below are the stamp sets and punches I used to make this beautiful card. Also are the papers I used.
I heat embossed the flowers using white embossing powder on the Perennial Essence Vellum. Only the top layer is embossed, and the flower is punched 3 times, and the leaves are also from the vellum.
I then added a s3/4" strip of old olive, but sponged it to add some depth to the DSP layer. My sentiment on the outside is stamped in Blueberry Bushel and also sponged. I used the Tailored Tag punch to flag my end.
I also used the Petal Pink 5/8" organdy striped ribbon behind my flowers.
For the inside my layer of Whisper White is 4 x 5 1/4, sponged and stamped with Blueberry Bushel. The flower is stamped off Petal Pink.
I sure do hope this wonderful lady loves her birthday card to celebrate her 100th year of life! What a feat.
If you want to send her a card let me know and I will get you the address.
