A Special 85th Birthday Card

I love being able to help special people celebrate their milestone birthdays! I was asked to make this special 85th Birthday Card for a friend’s Mother. What an honor to be able to celebrate with your Mom on such an auspicious occasion! Some of us never get that chance so I hope, if you do, you’ll enjoy every moment!

Here are the products used:

Assembly Instructions:

  • Score Thick Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″, fold on the scoreline, burnish with Bone Folder.

  • Use Big Shot and rectangle die from the Ornate Layer Dies to cut 2 pieces from Blushing Bride Cardstock. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach over the DSP.

One Sheet Wonder

Recently I’ve been scheduling a Zoom class on Fridays called “Stamp with Friends”. It’s a lot of fun and others volunteer to “be the teacher” once in a while as well! Bonnie Read taught a class to show us how to make 14 cards using a plan for a “One Sheet Wonder”. A couple days before the class, we were given a list of supplies needed so we could have them ready to create while we “Zoomed” together. This picture shows the card stock and Designer Series Paper that I chose.

There are many different instructions you can find for creating this kind of project. This is the one that Bonnie shared with us so we could follow as she showed us how to make the cards. I hope you’ll enjoy making a number of cards with 1 – 12 x 12 sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP).
