Perfectly Penciled 70th

March 28, 2023 | 0 comments

Today’s card came about when a friend asked me if I could make them a 70th Birthday card. The only requirements were that it needed to be Black & White only.

I decided to use the Perfectly Penciled designer series papers from the 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalogue and created this card.

To make my card I cut a piece of Basic White Thick A4 cardstock @ 297mm x 148.5mm which I scored and folded in half to make a square card. I then cut 2 pieces of Perfectly Penciled designer series papers, 1 @ 120mm x 148.5mm and 1 @ 40mm x 148.5mm. Next, I adhered the larger piece to the base card, aligning to the right side of the card, and the smaller piece aligning to the left using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then cut a scallop strip from Basic Black cardstock using the die from Penned Flowers. This was then adhered over the join of the designer series papers.

Next, I fussy cut the flower image from the Perfectly Penciled designer series papers and mounted to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then used the Alphabet A La Mode Dies and Basic Black cardstock to die cut the 70, which I adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The ‘th’ was created using the ‘Happy Birthday’ stamp from the Art Gallery stamp set. I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up the ‘th’ which I then stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock before fussy cutting and mounting to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The ‘happy’ and ‘birthday’ were stamped onto Basic Black cardstock using Versamark ink and then heat embossed using White embossing Powder. Next, I fussy cut the images before mounting to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Iridescent Pearls for the final touch.

I decorated the flap on the envelope with a coordinating piece of the designer series paper.

For the inside of my card I cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock @ 138mm x 138mm and a piece of Basic White cardstock @ 134mm x 134mm. Next, I fussy cut a floral image from the edge of the designer series paper and adhered to the Basic White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This was then adhered to the Basic Black cardstock and then to the inside of the card.
