My Uncle Brian celebrates his 70th birthday this week. He is off to Oz today to visit his brother so I had to get this card to him before he left.So it was all hands to the pump on Sunday evening to get it made and in the post on Monday morning! Phew!!!
It's a pop-up again using those lovely Papermani Elegance paper-these are so good for special celebration cards!'70' was cut from gold mirri and embossed then adhered to the pop-up section with foam pads. I added a border punched from gold mirri with an EK Success chain border punch, a champagne bottle complete with 'fizz' and a couple of sentiments. A scattering of punched gold stars completes the card.
The outside of the card was decorated with a gold star punched border over a patterned paper strip and a couple of embossed '70's
Champagne bottle-Simply Charmed
You may have noticed (lol!) that I use just a few carts with every card that I make. This would be a real pain without my trusty JukeBox (no 'ON' & 'OFF'ing with every cart change!)I would recommend one of these to every Cricut owner,but they are being withdrawn from sale as everyone has a Gypsy (right? NOT!!!) so NOBODY needs a Jukebox. Ladies, get one if you can before they disappear..you'll wonder how you ever managed without one!
Thanks for dropping by!
