One of my hubby's colleagues saw the cards that I made for  Debbie, and he e-mailed to request a card for his wife Maureen's 60th birthday. The only brief was that it should have a drama theme as Maureen is a drama teacher and enjoys AmDram (amateur dramatics) I had this gorgeous paper from a 12x12 pad from Papermania by Lucy Cromwell. The card base is an A4 and the layout is my standard for commission cards. I cut a beautiful filagree frame from blue textured cardstock. It was adhered with foam pads to the central panel, which was trimmed with a white satin ribbon and bow. I cut a scalloped square to fit in the middle of the frame, embossed it, then adhered it to the centre of the frame with more foam pads. A '60' was cut from greeny blue glittercard and adhered flat to the embossed square. The comedy and tragedy masks were cut from two different shades of glittercard and adhered to the top of the frame. I created a book from more glittercard and added 'Romeo & Juliet' to the front cover with teeny tiny gold peel off's (collective gasp of disbelief from the people who know how I feel about peel offs!!!) It was adhered flat underneath the '60'. 'MAUREEN' was cut from glittercard and adhered flat. An aqua bloom, punched glittercard flowers and a smattering of pearls completes the card.

Filagree frame- Ornamental Iron 2
Scalloped square- Elegant Edges
