StampinByHannah Fresh Florals 18th Birthday Card
We had a BIG birthday in our family yesterday. My Sister-in-Law turned 18! As usual James (my husband) requested a card for his sister… but he couldn’t have a normal card! Oh no, he had made a CD of some very embarrassing music for her, and so wanted a nice card for it to go in. While I’m not going to share a tutorial for this … its just quite a specific request! I will share the card as a whole with you.
Because this card was designed to fit a CD in it, it is a different size to my usual card creations. I do love making a square card every now and again, and this one has layers of Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper and Vellum (Yum!).
Card stock – Berry Burst – 10 x 5″ (25 x 12.5 cm)
Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper – 4 3/4 x 4 3/4″ ( 12 x 12 cm)
Vellum – 4 x 4″ (10 x 10 cm)
I think Stampin’ Up! have the most perfect stamp set (and coordinating dies) for BIG birthdays…. the Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers dies. These are BIG! Not only does the stamp set include numbers 0-8, it also has some really handy sentiments AND some pretty floral stamps too. Here I stamped the ’18’ in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Berry Burst card stock, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The rest of the sentiment is also stamped in Berry Burst, and also die cut from the Large Numbers dies.
I couldn’t just give my Sister-In-Law (Bella) a pretty card in a boring envelope could I? So, I used the Envelope Punch Board to make this fabulous envelope! It also uses the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper, but in Fresh Fig this time. I LOVE making envelopes from Designer Series Paper, but writing on it can be a little tricky… so I created a tag for the front instead. I used the Number of Years stamp set again to stamp ’18’ in Berry Burst (stamped off once) and added her name using the Labeler Alphabet stamped in Fresh Fig.
Designer Series Paper – 8 1/8 x 8 1/8″
Punched and Scored at 4 1/8″ using the Envelope Punch Board
Closing homemade envelopes can be tricky… here I opted to wrap the envelope with some 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White. So pretty!
