Golden Birthday

Monday, February 24, 2014

Today’s card was made using the sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.

Here is the sketch:

When I looked at this sketch for some reason I thought of the Another Great Year #133038 $23.95 or #133041 $17.95 stamp set.

Here is my take on the sketch:
Golden Birthday Another Great Year

I also decided I wanted to make this a Golden Birthday Card. What is a Golden Birthday? A Golden Birthday is when you turn the same age as the date you were born. My birthday is September 24; so when I turned 24 that was my Golden Birthday. My husband gave me a blue sapphire and diamond ring. A perfect gift since Sapphire is my Birthday stone and it was a gold ring.

Another Great Year Gold

For the base of my card I used the Gold Foil paper #132622 $3.95.

The actual card cut 4″ X 10 1/2″ is matted onto the Gold Foil paper. I also used the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in gold #133363 $10.95.

Another Great Year Golden Birthday

I stamped the Happy Birthday to you in Versamark ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then embossed it in Gold. I did this with the cupcake as well and punched it out with the 1″ Circle punch. I matted it onto a 1 1/4″ Gold Scallop Circle.
