70th Birthday Card

Today’s monochrome card is one I made for a friend to give to her husband
for his 70th birthday.
I started by making the A5 card base from mid-brown card.
I mat and layered the embossed beige panel onto dark brown card,
and added the tools and number using 3D foam.
Lastly I added the sentiment directly onto the card base.

The products I have used are:
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles
Cuttlebug Alphabet - Olivia
Card Deco - Happy Birthday
Memory Box embossing folder - Toolshed
Tool set die - Brand unknown
EK Success punch - Small Circle

Teenage Birthday Card for My Great Niece

Today, I am sharing the birthday card I made for my
great niece last month.
I started by making a 7x5 inch card base using terracotta card and I 
glued a piece of spotted paper from the Changing Seasons paper pad
 onto the card base.

Next, I embossed a smaller piece of terracotta card, and used 
3D foamto attach it to the card.
Lastly, using some sparkly card, I added the die-cut numbers (raised
on 3D foam) the sentiment and some sequins to finish.

The items I have used:
Creative Expressions - Happy Birthday
The Range paper pad - Changing Seasons
Number dies - Brand unknown
Embossing folder - Brand unknown
