This weekend was busy with milestone birthday celebrations; my friend M celebrated the big 3-0 and my Godson Ethan celebrated his first birthday! Coincidentally, both M’s and Ethan’s actual birthday is tomorrow.
Here’s the card I made for M, using my new SU Whimsical Words stamp I got from the Sale-A-Bration sale going on right now; I really love this set!
I used the same layout that I did last week, with more of the Me and My Big Ideas paper. I made this card a standard A2 size and used Real Red as the background matting and scalloped circle.
I heat embossed the sentiment and used some glue-on rhinestones that I picked up at Michaels months ago.
I used SU Real Red grosgrain ribbon as well.
I had a new layout in my head, but wasn’t sure it was going to work. After a few tries, it turned out exactly as I wanted it to.

I drew the “E” by hand, as well as the “1” and popped it all up on dimensionals.
