Another 70th Birthday!

I recently had a request for a special card for a friend’s sister who was turning 70.  I decided to make another tri-fold card as it was a special birthday.  Warning….this is a photo heavy post!  LOL!

I used several images from Stamping Bella from their Squidgy line, Chatty Squidgy (isn’t she adorable), Huggy Squidgies (want a hug?), and The Squidgy Who Couldn’t (that’s me sometimes!).  They are such cute images!

Using my Copic markers, I colored all three images and then used the matching dies to cut them out.  I used the die from another set to cut the speech bubble for the front of my card.  The paper on the card is digital paper from Whimsy Stamps.

A peek at all of the panels of the card…

The sentiment on the second panel is computer generated.  The inside sentiment was created using several different dies.  I printed out a sheet of “70” and then used a mini punch to punch them out.  I added them to the inside panel around my image.  And of course, I added some Nuvo Purple Rain Glitter Drops to the front of the card.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did in creating it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!

  1. This is fab. Love the fun feel. The colours make me think of the poem Warning by Jenny Joseph:

    With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter…’

      1. I have every intention of being a batty, independent, strong willed old b***h!

        I had a fabulous lady live where I work who was totally herself. She was 70, spoke about herself in the third person, wore continence pads, and had a think for sexy lingerie. Nobody who heard of it will ever forget the day she was in Primark with a carer who was trying to encourage her to buy a practical pair of knickers which would fit a continence pad, someone who worked there offered to help find her size and she threw a pair of knickers at the poor lady’s head shouting ‘she’s not wearing granny pants’
