I've been traveling for work... long story. Anyway, I wanted to get this card posted so I am popping in today sharing the birthday card I gave my Grandma on her 90th birthday. You might remember these invitations to her birthday party that I made to send out. I thought I needed to go in a different creative direction just to make her feel good.
I used my Concord and 9th Happy Day stamp set to make this card. The cake stamp was inked using brown ink on Bristol paper. This was so I could color the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a waterpen. I finished the image with a little glitter pen to make some shine - you can almost see the glitter on the flowers.
I fussy cut the image out - getting much closer to the edge than the matching dies would do. I used some fun foam to back the image so that the image would be evenly raised. The banner is raised using two toothpicks I had on hand. . Both the banner and the sentiment are from the Concord and 9th stamp set. They make milestone birthdays easy to celebrate!
On the inside - a simple added wish with a sparkle heart. We had a fantastic time at the party and the follow-up dinner on her actual birthday. I am so very blessed to have both my material grandparents with me to celebrate on such an occasion. I ended up making her a set of Thank You cards for her actual gift. I'll try to get those photos edited and posted soon.
