It was my husband’s grandmother’s 100th birthday last week, and this is the card that I made for her. I used a Sahara Sand card base and a layer from the Something Borrowed DSP (retired). Next, I added a Whisper White layer, which was cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelits (retired). I cut out the “happy” in Perfect Plum cardstock with the Hello You Thinlits (p.172, #137363), and embossed it several times with Clear Embossing Powder to create a great Enameled look (see my previous post on this fabulous technique HERE). Then I cut out the 100 with my Alphabet Typeset Bigz Dies (retired) in Champagn Glimmer paper (retired).
I added several flowers in Perfect Plum and Elegant Egglant cardstock which were punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack(p.166,#133787), the Petite Petals Punch(p.167,#133322), and the Itty Bitty Punch Pack (retired). I added a small circle of Champagn Glimmer paper to the center of the flowers, and some leaves from the Bird Builder Punch (p.167,#117191).I think the flowers added just that extra special touch to make this card truly beautiful.
This is a special card for a 100th birthday. I can’t even imagine all that she has seen and experienced in 100 years. What an amazing thing to be a centenarian!! Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Stampin’!
