Today’s post is all about AGE. This week my oldest child turned 30! Now, I’m not nearly old enough to have a child who is 30 years old, I must have had this child when I was just a tot. 😉 But age is just a number right? LOL But I had to rag on him a little with his card right? This image from Giggle Greetings was just perfect for a 30 year old.
I stamped the image twice, once on Very Vanilla and once on Hello Honey. I trimmed the block of cheese out of the Hello Honey and added it on top of the Very Vanilla image. Then I used my Aquapainters to color in the candle, flame and add some accents to the plate. Because my children both went to Florida State University they frequently get cards that are Garnet and Gold and this is no exception. The card base is Cherry Cobbler (Garnet) and then there is a layer of Hello Honey (Gold). I added a piece of yellow stripes from a retired Designer Series Paper, Sweet Taffy, which is so perfect for celebrations! There a tiny sliver of Crumb Cake just to tone all that yellow down. Since this is going to a guy I kept the embellishments to a minimum by only using Basic Rhinestones. It was hard, I really wanted to use some ribbon and a pretty bow but I held back.
All of the supplies used in today’s card are available at my online store HERE. I’ve listed them at the bottom of the page. I hope you enjoyed today’s card inspired you to create something sweet for somebody!
