40th birthday card

Hey everyone. This was a card I made for a fortieth birthday.


I heat embossed the numbers (from a retired set, but I love it so much I will keep using it!) and then did a watercolour wash using Balmy Blue. (I used shimmery white cardstock). I layered this onto Soft Seafoam.

I then embellished! I used a couple of offcut scraps of Balmy Blue and Coastal Cabana, and on top I added a little piece of the white flax ribbon. I must say the pool party and white bakers twine (from the Little Twinkle suite) is such a favourite of mine 💙 so I used this to wrap around three times. The sentiment is from the little elephant stamp set, which I punched out and layered onto Soft Seafoam. The little butterfly is from the wooden butterfly elements, which I heat embossed with white so it better fitted my colour scheme. Lastly I added some sequins and some stars, before layering this whole lot onto my base card of whisper white.

Hope you like this and I’ve inspired you today!

Don’t forget you can purchase everything I used to make this card by heading over to my online store

Love Jane x
