Last week’s Friday feature, showing how to use an all occasion crafting tool for Christmas cards, used the Typeset Alphabet die. Today I’m back with a birthday card using the same die.
And it’s for my Mum’s birthday.
Now this card was extremely difficult for me. My Mum likes her cards:
- to focus on the verse/sentiment, rather than the outside (she’ll read it first);
- to show who it’s for (e.g. Mum);
- large; but
- not be too fancy/blingy
Now, to be honest, that’s not my style in any way, so I struggled a little.
The base card is an A5 of Crushed Curry, matted with Smokey Slate card and Eastern Elegance DSP (130131). The Perfectly Penned sentiment (W128703 or C122892) was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Silver EP. Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (120805) was applied to Coaster Board (129392) and then Brushed Silver card (124918) added over the top. The letters were die cut from this sandwich using the Typeset Alphabet (127553) and then adhered direct to the card front.
I forgot to photograph the insert but using the computer I printed a verse onto Whisper White card and adhered it to the inside.
We had a lovely afternoon tea out together yesterday and I’m hoping she’s had a good day today (her actual birthday).
I’ll be back tomorrow with the first in a series of sneak peeks before the Autumn/Winter catalogue launches on 29 August.
