Big Three O

We have a special 30th birthday. My Sister in Law turns 30 and so this card needed to be super special. Not only does she put up with my brother but was a massive support to both, myself, my husband and the kids when I was undergoing my cancer treatment. She picked me up, wiped my tears and fed me cake. 

The card uses the Winnie Celebrations Digi Stamp from Polkadoodles which was 
coloured with Spectrum Noir markers

There is a video tutorial on my YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Supplies used

1 sheet of White Card for Printing
Winnie Celebrations digi stamp by Polkadoodles
Spectrum Noir Markers
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Pen in Clear Overlay
Glossy Accents
1 Sheet A4 Card in pink
Glitter Card
Xcut Nesting Die in Doorplate
Gemini Torn Oval Nesting Die
Acetate sheet
Foam Squares
30 confetti 
Champagne Coloured Ribbon

The image was printed and coloured using Spectrum Noir markers. I used a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen in clear overlay over the bubbles coming from the champagne glass and covered the champagne with glossy accents to give it a dimensional look.This was cut out using a doorplate shaped nesting die from Gemini

The pink A4 card was cut to 6 Inch by 11 Inch and scored at 5 1/2. To the right hand side of the card a torn oval was cut using a nesting die.

 Acetate was attached to the wrong die of this hole.Foam squares were attached to this 

Confetti was laid on the acetate. 

Hot glue was gently placed on top of the foam squares and a piece of blue card which has been cut with the larger torn oval die secured the shaker. 

A border was cut using 2 nesting dies and stuck around the shaker element on the front of the card

On the bottom champagne ribbon was glued.

Winnie was glued onto the left hand side. 

A tiny bow was placed under the shaker

To finish 3 tiny clear gems were put in the top right corner

  1. Lovely card with the shaker and cute picture
    Fiddly putting all those tiny squares around so neatly
    I have found it easier to die cut foam and glue it down

    1. What a fabulous tip thank you I have ordered some now

  2. Oh what a pretty card for a special member of your family Claire!! Love how you made your shaker element - I have used foam tape rather than squares, as well as a sheet of foam with a matching aperture cut from it...
