Finally making 70th cards

Thank you for all the supportive comments on my lacking inspiration post about my father in law’s 70th. I’m pleased to say I’ve had far more luck today!

I have ended up making 4 cards. I’m still not wowed, but at least they’re done.



The top one is probably my favourite, very simple using Kanban Birthday Celebrations foiled card and a Christmas double sided metallic card pack which were both Create and Craft member’s free gifts ages back.

I used a Tattered Lace steampunk bird die as well as a DCWV paper stack and a watch cut from the DoCrafts Chronology kit for the second card. It’s ok, but I am not pleased with the 70 itself, it just refused to work.

The third card is a Hunkydory Little Book of Everything page decoupaged matted onto the same Christmas double sided metallic card pack as before, then on a plain piece of blue from the same pack, with a Sara’s Signature Collection die and 70th cut from the silver mat using my Scan’N’Cut.

The final card uses the Hunkydory Fantashtique kit which I had forgotten I had (oops, it had never been used! Must have had it around 18 months). I complemented it with a lovely Burgundy from the Christmas double sided metallic card pack and a sheet from my DCWV paper stack.

The Moral of this I think is to not keep putting off the important cards!
