Burgandy 40th Birthday

This week I was asked how quickly I could make a burgandy and green 40th Birthday card --- "like that other one you made". Hmmmmm...... So this card probably looks a bit familiar, but that's what they wanted!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla, layered with Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgandy and then some paper by Grant with a toile burgandy print. Next I tied some light cream satin ribbon around it all and then some burgandy/red ribbon I had in my stash. The flower is from 'Bloomin' with Beauty' (or Bloomin' Beautiful if you are in the US) and stamped in black on very vanilla twice. The first one I coloured (in Always Artichoke and Bravo Burgandy and a touch of Ruby Red) and cut out using Rectangle nesties and embossed the edge. The second one I coloured in only the blossom and popped it over the other. Then I layered it on BB and AA. Finally I stamped the sentiment in AA using my Just Rite 1 5/8in Stamper and the Small Letter Set and Special Occasions Font (for the 40) and cut it out with circle nesties. Then I stamped the 40 again using BB, cut it out with 1 1/4in circle punch and popped it up.

All the Spellbinder Nestabilities and Just Rite products are available here in Australia through ABSA , just contact Michael and Colleen and they'll be happy to help! All other products are Stampin Up.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!! :)
