50th Birthday Card

Well, it makes a change from all my Christmas postings! I was delighted to be asked recently to make a 50th birthday card. It's always lovely to do birthday cards at Christmas time - even if only for a change from the Christmas colours and sentiments.

Here is the finished card, which is A5 in size:

 50th birthday card using Secret Garden and Flower Shop SU
As you can see, it was for Karen to celebrate her 50th Birthday. I thought some pretty flowers and a script background would suit Karen perfectly. The large flowers are from 'Flower Shop' and the small flowers and the leaves are from 'Secret Garden'. Both sets have either a matching punch or die, which makes cutting them out a breeze.
I used our Circle Framelits to create the aperture, with the background stamped with the text from 'En Francais' a huge background stamp and perfect for this.
The number 50 is quite thick, as I used multiple card layers and number dies and layered up the two numbers. You can see that and the flowers in more detail below, although the glitter I added to the centre of the flowers does not show up in the photo.

Karen has opened her card, so it's fine to share with you. I hope you like it. Feel free to leave me a comment, click on any of the quick links below, or pop to my online shop to order any of the items.
