Birthday

70th birthday card Free as a Bird

Hey everyone. I made another 70th birthday card for a request. They said the recipient loved birds. Well! I knew just the stamp set! I was lucky enough to get this stamp set from OnStage, and boy is it cute!!!

Firstly I knew I wanted to have a little window type thing where it gives depth. I know what I mean!!! So I cut a layer of cherry cobbler and a slightly smaller whisper white which I glued on top. I then die cut an oval window using the stitched framelits.  I then placed my layers onto my base and very lightly drew around the edge with a pencil. Once I lifted my layer off I could see the faint line, so I knew where to stamp.

I used the retired numbers set (I still use these SO much!) to stamp with versamark and then heat emboss with gold embossing powder. This created an almost vintage-y look. I then stamped just a few of the flowers (from the Free as a Bird stamp set) in cherry cobbler, just at the top and bottom of the numbers. 

I then moved on to my layer. I stamped some of the leaves in old olive, (which I stamped off first, to give a more subtle colour) I just focussed on the top left and bottom right of the window. I then stamped some flowers, small and large in cherry cobbler on to some scrap whisper white, and fussy cut out.

I then stamped the line of birds(so gorgeous 😍) on to some whisper white and fussy cut these out, leaving a little border. I used my blends to colour them in. I then attached them to my card using dimensionals.

Then I added some embellishments! I added some wooden elements, and some of my pre cut flowers, some flat and some with dimensionals. Also added some sequins, I can’t resist!

I am so happy with my card, and  I know the recipient loved it😍 which makes me even happier.

I hope you like my card and you have been inspired to have a go.

Love Jane x
