Stampin' Up!® 50th Birthday card using Pick a Pennant & Stamperatus®

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator

Thank you for joining me today. This project is a 50th Birthday Card I made for one of my best friends. A lot of people often say to me you can't have more than on best friend, but I am blessed and I do. I wanted to create a party feel with this card and also incorporate bright colours as she does like her 70s fashion.

Stamparatus®

I used the new Stamparatus® to stamp the letters on the bunting. This tool made this really easy to to do. I was able to stamp the bunting in Lemon Lime Twist then I placed the letters one at a time and picked them up on the Stamperatus® Plate. I found doing it individually was the easiest way of doing this and it meant that all were positioned where I wanted them. This would be great if you were bulk making for a party or wedding. I used Tranquil Tide to stamp the letters.

Using Birthday Backgrounds

I love this set and I was lucky enough to get to free at On Stage in April. It has lots of lovely party shapes, candles, streamers, ribbon explosions, confetti. I randomly stamped these over some Whisper White in different colours, Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist. I then used the Celebrate die and the numbers 5 & 0 to cut them out. 

Finishing off the card

I cut a second celebrate and 50 with Lemon Lime Twist and stuck it like a shadow under the Birthday Background stamped die cuts. I used the Lemon Lime Twist and tied a bow to add some extra dimension to the card and give it some balance. I stuck the numbers on top of the ribbon.

Inside the card

I felt it was important to decorate the inside as this was such a special occasion.

I die cut a bottle from the stamped background to match the front accents and made a label using the sentiment from the Bubble Over stamp set and die cut it using the Bottles & Bubbles die set. I stamped a border around the mat in the bubbles. To complete the look I cut a bottle lit in Lemon Lime Twist.
