I recently needed to create two milestone birthday cards – one for my 90 year old aunt and one for a 100 year old lady I’ve never met.
For these cards I’ve used the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Number Frameltis. My colour combination is Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight.
I decided not to put the numbers on the front for this card but adhere them to the inside with another sentiment.
One of our team saw and article in ‘Stuff’ about a lady who had turned 100 and received over 50 cards of the same design – some had come from Australia and some were from New Zealand. Obviously not many designs to choose from for this age bracket! So those of us that were able to made her a ‘one off’ handmade card and we sent them off to her – she was delighted.
I went with subtle colours for this card – Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Old Olive. When you reach 100 you need to have some ‘bling’ and ‘shine’ on your card so I added some rhinestones and gold foil.
Well I’d better start packing for our annual Creative Inkers Stamp Camp in Rotorua. I think the weather is going to be perfect for crafting! I’ll try and load some photos to my Facebook Business page while away so check it out to see what we’re up to.
Stay dry this weekend.
