This week my BFF celebrated her 40th Birthday (let's call her EDNA), however the party is not until tonight, so I'm scheduling this for when I plan to be walking in the door so she doesn't see it beforehand! :) Now I seriously thought about doing and elegant grown up sort of card, I mean we have known each other for more than 20yrs, but I decided against it, 'cause she loves these a la mode stamps by My Favorite Things and she also is really good at doing different shaped/folded cards - so I went down that path instead. I sure hope she likes it!!!
I created my Side Stair Step card out of Very Vanilla. Then I stamped my Time to Celebrate a la mode from MFT in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E000, E01, E51, E53, R83, R85, R89, B91, B93, B95, B97, R22, R24, E13, E17, E19, W1, W3). I used the Mega Long Rectangle Nestabilities to cut and matt it. I used some Modern Homemaker DP for the horizontal panels ('cause I know she loves this paper too) and created a little rose garden out of the MS Arch Lattice punch and some ZVA roses. For the sentiment panel I used the JustRite Birthday Celebrations set and coloured with R81, R83, R85, R89 (to match the cake) and cut it out with scissors. I finished by adding a few pearl swirls.
