I hope my sister doesn't kill me for this, but she's turning 40 in January. As I realized this the other day I thought it would be great to make her a "Fabulous Forty" card. The wheels began turning, and this is, sorta, what I imagined.
I cut the numbers from my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. After my 'JOY Garland' I decided it would be easier to get a Xyron machine. I used the 2.5 inch machine to put adhesive on the numbers, then sprinkle some glitter on top. I cut the shimmery pink cardstock numbers 1/4 in bigger and layered the two sets with foam tape.
I wanted some more bling, so I added the small rhinestones. The paper is by Colorbook and is just gorgeous with stripes of various glitter. I also used the new Stampin' Up! border punch (which will be available for free during Sell-a-bration next month).
Speaking of Stampin' Up! - I just received a pre-order from the upcoming Occassions Mini Catalog. I'm so excited, I had to share with everyone. Here's my first clear mounting SU! set 'With All My Heart'.
Which coordinates perfectly with the new Specialty Paper 'Sending Love Specialty'. I LOVE this paper! One side is glittery, the other side is regular.
