Card for a 50th Birthday Girl

I was asked to design a card to go on the top of a Chocolate cake to celebrate a friends sister’s 50th birthday. This was a fun card to make and I was very pleased with the final result. It is amazing what can be  done when you have all the tools and supplies. Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy with all their co-ordinating supplies.

I chose to make an easel card, in shades of Chocolate Chip and Rose Red. The background was stamped with the large flower from the Fifth Avenue Flower Stamp Set in Versamark, with Heat and Stick powder, followed by Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The large scallop was made using the “Big Shot” and Bigz Scallop circle die, then embossed with the Manhattan flower embossing folder.

The 3d flower was made using alternating layers of Chocolate Chip and Rose Red cardstock, punched with the Stampin’ Up! scallop punch. The cardstock was softened by passing through a crimper lots of times, so that the fibres were broken down, and the cardstock separated into two layers.  Dazzling Diamonds were added to the flower using the “two way glue pen”.   The “two way glue pen” was also used to add a boarder of Dazzling Diamonds glitter around the photo.

(All supplies used are Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise stated.)
