Happy 30th Birthday

DAY 22: This month I’m blogging daily because there are soooo many cards I’ve never taken the time to blog about. Today’s featured cards are from September 2010 when I had two dear friends who turned 30.

Sometimes it’s more efficient to make multiples of the same card, so when I had two girl friends with 30th birthdays, I made them each the same card and they never knew their card was a twin (of sorts). 🙂

30th birthday cards

For anyone wondering how I put the card together, I’ll try to recall what I did. I used some black cardstock and put it into an embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug (which is much older than the new mode featured in the link) to get the raised grid pattern. Then, I took a sanding block from my Sanding Kit and sanded away the raised edges to reveal the contrasting white inner core. I stuck the black cardstock onto a white card base and them added a lacy trim to the left with some pink paper cut with a Stampin’ Up! paper punch and a strip of white embossed paper. I used my Cricut Expression machine to cut the “30” and stamped my sentiment and birthday hat and hand cut them. I added a pink eyelet to the handmade tag and threaded a pink grossgrain ribbon through it. Using some Copic glitter markers, I colored the birthday hat and added a little pink sparkle to make it more festive.

Thank you for reading my blog! I appreciate having readers – thank you. 🙂
