My Mums 70th Birthday Card

Here is the card I made for my Mums 70th Birthday which she is celebrating today.  Happy Birthday Mum!

I made the card using one of my new Go Kreate XXL square frames frilly #2 dies and cut some pretty paper with the next size down and glued to the white card before cutting and scoring to make into a stepper card.

The image is from one of the large square design sheets which I bought from Lili of the valley on ebay. I cut it out using a smaller Frilly square Go Kreate die and added crystal stickles where there are champagne bubbles.

I cut the number 70 with my Cuttlebug Olivia set, made the flowers with a Die-namics flower die and the silver leaves and flourish have been cut using a Marianne Creatables die. I have also used my new Poppy stamps Bubble Daisy Border die to create the die cut which I have added on the step part under the number 70.

I will be back later with the little gift box I have made for her too so check back if you are interested.
