Today’s card was made with my brother in mind. He is turning the big 50 this year and along with this card I am making him a scrapbook of his life from birth till graduation. I am a little over half way done and need to get the pedal to the medal… so to speak! I have made similar scrapbooks for both of my sisters when they turned 50 and now it’s his turn. Hey, I wonder who is going to make my scrapbook when my time comes? LOL But I am in no hurry for that day!!! 🙂 Also, I am real excited to say that this card will be featured at the Crafty Card Gallery this week! If you have never heard of this blog, I have linked it up for you to go check it out! The challenge was to make a card with whatever we had laying on our desk…… My desk is usually relatively clean, (sorry I know that is strange for creative people), but I did have the following sitting there: The yellow DP, the two different styles of Die- cuts from My favorite Things, the sparkly stars and the ribbon. Also, let me explain one of my tricks to use the DP that is being neglected: Every couple of weeks I go through my papers and get out the ones that I have had for so long and never used…you know the ones gathering dust. I feel that if they are in plain site they might spark some creativity and finally get a paper cutter taken to them. And that is why the Yellow DP was incorporated into this card!
Details of the card:
DP and cardstock is CM and SU
Sentiment was made with my computer, the 50 with my cricut
All the Die-namics are from My Favorite Things
Used my cuttlebug for the texture behind the 50 (dots folder)
Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but I punched out some balloons and placed them on the black card stock for added detail.
Then added some ribbon, glitter stars and dots!
Thanks so much for the visit and don’t forget to check out the Crafty Card Gallery,
