Look Who's Turning...

Yesterday's card was one of two that we made today at our January Workshop.   Today's card is the second card the girls made.  Each person made the number on their card according to their needs.  Mine will probably go to my youngest son who will be turning 30 in a month.  HOW is that possible, I can't have two adult children!  Yikes!

Actually, looking at the colors, I think I need to change up the colors and do something more masculine.  Mint Macaron just doesn't cut it!


You can see the shimmer on the card above where I used my Wink of Stella (clear) pen.  I love this pen, it is so much fun to use to add spark to anything.

Recipe:
Whisper White Thick Card Stock - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Crushed Curry for the Banner and Balloons
Mint Macaron for the Circle
It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack

Stamps:
Number of Years / Large Numbers Framelits Dies (Bundle)
Balloon Celebration / Balloon Bouquet Punch (Bundle)

Tools:  Circles Framelits
Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Wink of Stella Clear Brush


The 30 is actually popped up with craft foam.  To see the details on how I did this, check my earlier post HERE.



To make the "arch" for stamping the "Look Who's Turning", I used the Circles Framelits.  I used the largest circle and then skipped one and used the next one.  Put the two together and carefully center the smaller one inside the larger one and you have the perfect size and curve for this stamp.

It's big enough to make three arches.  My sample is white, but we used Crushed Curry for the card.  Then just simply snip the sentiment out and pop it up on the card.



Thank you for looking in today.

  1. Very fun! I think I agree with the mint macaron not being very masculine. Isn't there a blue in that DP? Of course you could always put a hand written note inside saying, hey, at least it isn't pink! Some guys would laugh at that! That is a neat trick with the curved Look who's turning!
