60th Birthday - Celebrate!

Turning 60 is something to toast! Here I used the Half Full stamp set. I stamped the glasses stamp twice, added a mat, colored in a couple of the glasses and then die cut the numbers from Black Glimmer Paper. Inside, I added the sentiment "fabulous at any age" (from Itty Bitty Greetings) sort of badge and then will write my own message to the birthday recipient. My card was inspired

 

Negative Space Card Creation

I am awaiting my August Paper Pumpkin kit. While I wait, I used this negative from last month's kit to create a sympathy card. I love the way the Old Olive looks when placed over black--very bold!

I loved how she wrapped the lighthouse

I had the Beautiful Layers dies sitting on my desk next to it and saw the lovely geometric-like accents, which I added to a Night of Navy Stitched Rectangle. Once in awhile, it's nice to have a card with no sentiment! You can always add one when you are ready to give the card.
