It's my birthday today

and I'm becoming...

...You guessed it: 30! ;-)

My boyfriend wanted me to make a card that he could give me for my birthday. As he put it: "I can buy a card, but it will never be as nice as you make yourself." :-)

How to: I first drew the number 30, cut it out, distressed the edges and stamped the houndstooth for some interest. Then I clear embossed the heart on the yellow paper, cut it out and distressed with black. The butterfly was stamped in black and cut out.
On the background I stamped flowers and hearts in a few different sizes to make my own patterned paper.
Lastly, I white embossed the sentiment, added the background to a white card base, adhered the cut out pieces with pop dots and drew the dashed line.

(Will update later with supplies)


  1. Happy Birthday Tone! I hope that you have a lovely day:) Hugs x x

  2. Wish you all THE best for your new year in live! A lot of inspiration for cardmaking. How sweet your boyfriend is! Such a great compliment he made!

  3. HOW FUNNY that you had to make your own card!
    But HE is RIGHT, Your cards are really good!
