21st Birthday Cards

Last week after all the guests had left from our second catalogue launch, I hung back with Liz and we had a bit of creative time together... Liz had a customer that wanted a card design for 21st Birthday's as her daughter will be attending loads this year.... so we made these lovely cards... with a oval punch and a scallop border you can created these fantastic catering trays....And of course we have used the new Cake punch and the lovely Birthday stamp set in the new Autumn/Winter mini catalogue....

21st Birthday Card

Then we came up with this lovely 12x12 scrapbook page card below... It was inspired by a design we were shown at a convention a little while ago... you score the 12x12 page in quarters and then cut one length of the quarters... Then you fold it so it creates a booklet... We then used sticky strip to stick the 2 middle pages together and we put in a CD case so that your card can be a present too... On the front page you can place a photo and in the back one you can write your birthday message... It would make a FANTASTICALLY BEAUTIFUL Birthday card and present all in one!!!

To create this Catering Cake Tray we embossed some grey card stock with silver embossing powder and then punched it out.. It gives the card stock a really authentic silver vintage look...kind of like hand beaten pewter... It's quite lovely... It was the result of desperation of wanting some silver card stock and not having it on hand... Isn't it awesome when your creativity is challenged and you can use it to come up with something that is perhaps even better?!!!! I am sure these cards will be a huge hit!! Beautiful even...

Happy Creating...
