60th Birthday Card

Good morning, hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

I have been playing with a new die and made a 60th birthday card for my Mum's friend. I've wanted a window die for a while and when we were out exploring new craft shops last week, I found this lovely little window die which opens!

I started with the window cut from white cardstock and then found a nice piece of floral paper which I then die cut in to a scalloped square and added to the white card blank. I cut a couple of pieces of mount board in a soft beige colour to make the lintel and window ledge.

This card gave me the opportunity to get out my little picket fence die again, I love this die I think it's so cute. I added this to either side of the window and then die cut some flowers from blue felt to tone with the background. I arranged these at the bottom of the card and added in some ready made flowers and leaves.

I then found a little butterfly in my stash that I had cut for something else and never used and I thought it would look lovely at the top of the window lol.

The hardest part was picking a sentiment for it. I had my two little design consultants with me for this stage! Or should that be my grandson's lol. and they couldn't agree on which one looked best! So in the end we agreed on the little blue one, which is part of the Hot Diggity collection.

I added the little 60 with silver peel offs and it was all done and dusted. A really pretty card for a change.

Anyway that's all from me today, enjoy what's left of the weekend.

See you soon
