100th Birthday card

Well have hopefully done one...

But took me ages to get started as I just couldn't get my head round it, lol. I think that was because I was asked for one, for them to give rather than me just making one for me to give. Do you see what I mean?

I started by going on a few crafty sites, but nothing jumped out at me. I even had a nose in a few card shops and only one had a card for 100 and that had the number and a few stars, that was it....

Anyway Steven was in respite on Saturday, so after doing the household chores I went into my Arty Attic around 2pm and came up with this, what do you think?


The number was cut using a sizzix die and was placed on a spellbinder nestie with a bit of stickles round the edge. (The writing was printed on the computer).

For the bottom I use a cuttlebug embossing folder and organza ribbon. The flowers are papermania with brads that were also stickled in the middle and finely the butterfly are 3 peeloffs joined together to add a bit of depth. (and while writing this, I'm thinking about adding more stickles to the swirls).


Also a friends daughter is 21 next week and is off to New York to celebrate it, so came up with this card for her.


The imagine was printed off the PC, writing and number are sizzix dies again.

So have been a bit of a busy bee, well for a few hours anyway, and when I got into it it, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute, lol...
