Not everyone likes their birthday number right on the front of a card but when I set out to make a card to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday, I was sure that she wouldn’t mind at all. When I make a card for someone I tend to focus on one stamp company that I design for so it allows me to create the card with the person in mind but also double it up as a DT sample. For this card I didn’t do that, instead I mixed Darkroom Door with Oxford Impressions for this feminine birthday card.The numbers are from a fabulous Oxford Impressions set of Distressed Numbers. I couldn’t resist glittering up the numbers! I will tell you that I was stuck when it came to making this card. It was taking me forever to decide which stamp to use and without being aware of it I had obviously made a decision to feature numbers on the card front. It was only when I was tidying away the recent Darkroom Door sample I shared with you HERE, a canvas with a stamped paperclay rose that I had that moment of “ding!” I know which stamp to use ….. the elegant rose stamp which also featured on that same canvas. Thank you for your visit to my first post of this brand new week and the final week of November!
(The title for this post might seem strange. It relates to my friend as she lives in France and for the French script which was stamped randomly and repeatedly on the background.)
