We have a friend who recently celebrated his 50th birthday and this is the card I made for him, haven't made a word card for a while so it was a fun project for a change. I cut each of the letters from card used in shirt packaging and covered both sides with different coloured papers , some coloured copy paper , some digital freebies from birdhouse and some magazine freebies. I tried to keep to the colour palate of the retro paper I used on the 'Y' letter.
I added some fun images all of which are lily of the valley and a mix of sentiments which I think are all from the dark room . The images are all coloured with promarkers and some are fussy cut others just left on a white card surround.
On the last page of the card I added a die cut circle and used so,e of the letters of the memory box/poppystamps happy birthday background die to form the birthday sentiment. I could then write my message here,
The cute Thomas stamp with the cake was perfect as I made hies birthday cake , a 9 inch sachertorte which was enjoyed by all his guests and there was still some left for him and his wife to take home and enjoy.
I punched holes into each letter and tied them together with butchers twine , below are a couple of pictures to show the finished effect.
