90th Birthday Card

Happy birthday to my Auntie Phyl!

I made this cards for the family to send out to Phyl in New Zealand for her 90th birthday celebrations.

I was inspired by one of the Cricut magazines (April '12) and a card made by Shantaie Fowler. However I don't have any of the cartridges she used so set about finding something similar within my own collection.

I used the watering can from the 'Country Life cartridge and I added a tag from Tags Bags, Boxes and More. The '90' was cut with the 'Storybook cartridge.

The flowers were punched with a Stampin Up punch, the leaf fronds are from a Martha Stewart punch
My greeting is stamped with a Lili of the Valley stamp, then cut out and mounted on a circle punched with a Stampin' Up punch and then a scalloped circle punched with a Woodware punch, as are the flower stamen and the corner rounder punches.

I used a smaller Stampin' Up circle punch to cut a circle in the mat behind the can. The ribbon, gems and studs are from my stash. The papers are from Bo Bunny's Garden Girl Collection. Black, green and Kraft Bazzill were also used. The 8" x 8" card blank is from Craft Creations. The letter stickers are from My Little Shoebox. Everything was inked with Colorbox chalk inks.

Have a great birthday Auntie Phyl, wish we could be with you.
Thanks for looking.
