50th Birthday Card


I have printed some photographs of the recipients scooter and cut them out and added them to blue card. I have made a 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom with red card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using an Embossalicious embossing folder. I die cut the larger circle with Go Kreate dies and then found suitable sizes in my die collection, including a Sue Wilson snow globe die. I assembled the circles and then added a 50 (cut with Marianne dies) and a Happy Birthday (cut with a Joy die). I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it. I attached that with foam pads so it will act as the stopper for the easel. I then added the scooter photographs. Finally, I completed my card with red stars that I cut with a punch.
