60th Birthday card
Although I have been very busy recently I knew if I didn't make my mum in law a handmade card she'd never forgive Lol so I put this card together a few days ago when I had a spare half hour. I didn't even get chance to photograph it myself as I still couldn't find my camera although it has since turned up! I had to ask her to take piccies and e-mail them to me.
For the base of my card I layered a square of white pearl card onto shiny gold card and used my inverted corner punch on them before sticking together. I used a bit of sparkly ribbon around this before I attached it to my 8x8 card blank. I then matted and layered a smaller white pearl card square onto more shiny gold card and used my inverted corner punch as before. This I attached to the centre of my card with foam pads. I would have embossed this central panel but my big shot is in the corner of our spare room inside my sizzix tote that is full of boxes and stuff and I probably would have broke my neck trying to get at it so I didn't bother Lol. The "60" is hand cut from gold glitter card as I couldn't be bothered digging out my cricut as that is also still boxed away. I attached this onto the central panel with foam pads and added a few gems to the corners.
I think it looks quite stylish for a relatively quick card.
