Milestone Birthday Cards

Following are a couple of masculine birthday greeting cards especially made for conveying hearty 40th birthday wishes to my beloved brother-in-laws. (Yes! Two of my BILs turned 40 the same week).


I have kept the layout really simple. I’ve used circle punches of different sizes to cut out circles from a pattern paper and a coordinating card-stock. I have then die cut numbers 4 and 0. I arranged the circles on a light blue card base and then stuck them to the card using tape runner, glue and foam adhesives to add dimension. I had finished off the card by adding a few rhinestones to add more interest.


Observe the coordinating white envelopes for these cards, which is handmade too. I have punched out a circle from pattern paper, which I have cut into 2 pieces and adhered to the corners of the envelopes to finish them off.

Hope you liked the cards.



Happy Birthday Tall One

I’m sure everyone has that tall guy, who puts you to shame, in your list of loved ones. This card can be gifted to that tallest friend of yours (now you know why the giraffe). I made this card a while ago, which got to surface now. I can’t remember the source of inspiration for this card.

CFC 139 – The Birthday

Hi all. It’s going to be an exciting challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this month. Wondering why? Since, CAS-ual Fridays is celebrating its 4th birthday this month. Yaaaay!!
So this month’s challenge is totally about celebrating Casual Fridays. For this challenge, you must make a birthday themed project using only 4 colours – Orange, Turquoise, Black and White.
Here is my take on the challenge.

Rain of Sequins and Dots.

Hi all. Feels so good to be back after a while. I’m upset that we have to wait until 2015 for the next challenge with ‘CAS-ual Fridays’. I couldn’t let go the last challenge for this year. So here is my take on Casual Fridays Challenge # 134

It was hard for me to decide on the set of 3 elements to use on my card. I did two sets on my card.
1) Sequins-White- Dots (the obvious)
2) Sequins – Emboss – Twine
I have clear embossed the border stamps above and below the sentiment. This added a shimmer effect
and looks gorgeous.


Hope you liked the card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you. post signature
