Birthday Cards with Numbers

Birthday Cards with Numbers!

Recently I had the pleasure of making these special birthday cards!

A dear friend’s Mother celebrated her 90th Birthday with an open house celebration in the community where she’s spent almost all of her life!  She is a great example of “living life to the fullest” and I’m sure she’ll continue to do so for many more years!  This is the card I created especially for her – hope she likes it!!

At about the same time, another friend asked if I could make a special card for her Aunt who was going to be 85 years young!!  So, while I was “on a roll”, I created this card with the same design!  My friend was very pleased and I hope her Aunt was too!!

These are the products used to make these cards. 

Some of them have been retired by Stampin’ Up! but I’ve kept them on my shelf because I still need them for special cards like these!  

So Many Stars for Christmas

So Many Stars for Christmas

Today I’m sharing this spectacular bundle to show you how to have So Many Stars for Christmas!  You can save 10% when you buy the bundle – you can make many beautiful “non-Christmas” cards with the stamps & dies as well!  Anyone would love to receive a birthday card covered in stars – even if they aren’t made of sparkling cardstock.

Here’s what you’ll need to make a card of your own!

You can click on the image or the description to get all that you need!

Here’s how to make it and the dimensions used:

  1. Cut Balmy Blue Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2 – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Silver Glimmer Paper at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use the Big Shot and the Swirly Star Die from Stitched Stars Dies to cut the star design for the front from the Silver Glimmer Paper before adhering it to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut Night of Navy Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″.  Use the Big Shot and the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder to add some dimension to this layer.
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach over the Silver Glimmer Paper.  Some other adhesives will not stick to glimmer paper.
  5. Use Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the So Many Stars stamp set on the Whisper White Cardstock.  Having the greeting near the bottom of the shape, use the Big Shot and a die from Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out the greeting layer.  Attach over the Night of Navy layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the star section of the glimmer paper cut out so that the only portion adhered is over the greeting layer. Let the ends of the scrolls hang loosely over the edge.
  7. When using this die, you will end up with lots of little stars.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach them as desired.
  8. Use Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp the desired greeting on the inside of the card base.
