50th Birthday Cards

Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for your visit. Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!

Hubby’s turn now – half a century young!

My Husband and I always say that we will never grow up, so this card seemed ideal sent to him from the boys.  Unfortunately, no Big Thunder Mountain celebratory birthday ride this year at Disneyland Paris due to the Covid situation, but I did inject a little nod to Disney with the Mickey Mouse style hat.  The die is shown in full on the interior of the card, but for the front I cut out just the hat.  I think this die was an eBay purchase, which I’ve had for a while, but hadn’t used. The balloon background was done using a brass stencil and inked through onto white card.  MS Word was my friend for the text and I mounted this onto a black card base which was made using Dovecraft Premium Textured Cardstock.  I like using this for coloured card bases as it is 220 gsm in thickness.

Again, not much crafting going on for the card I sent to Hubby.  MS Word again for the text onto thick white card.  The dark blue card used for the mat underneath and corners is from The Works. The corner die was another eBay purchase some time ago.  The heart on the inside was left over from a previous project.  For the card base a sheet of A3 white card was scored in half, which is a nice sturdy 300 gsm, made by Craft UK Limited.  I find this card works well for large cards such as this one, which is A4 in size.

Hubby did have a good day, despite the lack of a Disney visit, he was very happy having some time off work to chill out and even happier when the day ended with a nice bottle of non-alcoholic wine.

I did buy him a small gift for future use, a travel journal, and made a gift box to store it in.  The fancy flap was created with a WRMK Mini 8 ‘Vine’ Punch.

In my next post I will show you the Christmas crafting that I have been working on!

See you next time,
