Fabulus at 50

Here is a quick and easy little card which I have made for a good friend who had a big birthday yesterday. I do love these stamp and die combos and I`m sure you will be seeing lots of cards from me made with them.

what you will need:
Crafteers Companion Cupcakes stamp/dies set 
Crafters Companion, birthday party, fun with numbers dies
Craffters Companion little angel 12" x 12" paper pad
Sheena stamping card
Spectrum noir crystal clear sparkle pen
Spectrum noir red berry aqua tint pen
Sekura white gelly roll pen
black fine tip pen
distress inks (to colour in the cupcakes)
yellow glitter card

This card is so much fun to make and the first step is to fold a piece of A4 card in half, decide where you need the stamped image to be on the outside of the card and either stamp the image and then die cut or die cut and then stamp - it`s up to you which you prefer. Trim the card to size top and bottom.
Colour the image using distress inks and a water brush.
Add sparkle to the icing using the sparkle pen and add a white bit to the cherry to look like it is shining.
Die cut the spotty paper from the paper pad with the other half of the die. Cut this paper to mat and layer onto the front of the card and stick in place on the card.
Stamp a sentiment using one of your own stamps or if you like to use a graphics program make a sentiment and print it out. Draw freehand around the sentiment using a fine tip black pen, cut the sentiment out and stick onto the front of the card.
Die cut the numbers from the glitter card and stick onto the card.
Using a ruler and the fine tip black pen draw a border/box around the inside of the card (I find it easier if you push the pen away from you rather than drawing it into you, the ink is a smoother flow).

Just in case yourey wondering how to be fabulous at 50 the inside sentiment reads "just keep doing what you did when you were fabulously 49".


I took this card and present to my friends yesterday morning and when I got there she was already drinking bubelly, she does know how to live. I on the other hand was not having a special day and stuck to a cup of tea.
