I was asked to make a 40th birthday card for a friend's brother. He's a party organizer so images and sentiments from the WMS Putting on the Ritz set and it's companion WMS Art Deco set were obvious choices. I decided to make it a bit more special by going with an easel card. The Spellbinders Nested Pennants were used to create the iconic Art Deco motif. The 40 was die cut with the Sizzix Go Slim numbers die from white glitter card. It seemed a shame to waste the negative pieces so I put them on the envelope.
My friend Bethia asked me to make a card for her mum's birthday. She's Jamaican and she loves sunflowers. When I was watching the Commonwealth games I was in awe of the Jamaican sprinters and the Jamaican colours were so eye catching.
I was wondering how I could represent the Jamaican flag when I was inspired by this week's Muse Vicki Dutcher to use the WMS Splat That set. I used the Clearly Besotted Trellis die to represent the yellow cross. I used this to frame the MFT sunflower. The Mum was cut using my Cameo and the Baroque Antique font.
A super quick card for Simon's class teacher. The background had already been stamped with WMS Cabin Plaid Backgrounder. I usually do a couple of these large background stamps in a sitting as they always come in handy. The tags and grommet were cut with the largest of the WMS Stitched Tag set. One was embossed with numbers and the other with letters using the M-Bossabilities Numbers and Letters embossing folder. The background had been stamped with Adirondack Peach Bellini and I used it to highlight the embossing on the tags as well.
