70th birthday

 Hi Everyone, my card today was for our, now retired, Illustrious Leader of The Male Room. It was so sad to have Jane step down to do other things and hopefully enjoy "old age". I shall miss her. 

I stamped and embossed, in silver, the floral image and coloured it in Distress Inks, I decided to go pale, as it was a Winter birthday. I then stamped it again and fussy cut the flower shape, which I added onto the opposite side, with a die cut 70 added to it. A few dots of silver Stickles and 3D glaze onto the 70, the addition of a stamped sentiment on a die cut shape.
stamp - Stamps by Me
inks - Distress Inks
number die - lost it's packet (sorry, could be First Edition) 
sentiment stamp and die - Julie Hickey
Stickles - silver
3D glaze - Nuvo Crystal Glaze


hopefully you can see the embossing clearer in this photo

Jane is also a collector of ATC's, so as a Team, it was decided to send her an ATC also. This is the first time I have made an ATC, I hope she likes it.

I stamped the Post Box, text and sentiment. I stencilled the clouds and the Post Box. I shaded around the edge of the ATC, then placed it into an embossing folder of a Post Card, inking over it to bring out the details.
Post Box stamp - Chocolate Baroque
sentiment - magazine freebie
cloud stencil - Funky Fossil
 diamond stencil - mag freebie by Ranger Wendy Vecchi
Post Card embossing folder - Crafters Companion
butterfly stamp - mag freebie
inks - Distress Inks
button - stash

What a lovely way to celebrate a milestone birthday with such a pretty card! Love the embossing and sneaky little "70" inserted into the flower :) The ATC is so cool and I've never made one either, but I'm sure Jane will enjoy her send-off with such pretty crafts!

Lovely and classy, Faith. And your ATC will be loved. You're a natural! The heat embossing on the card flowers does indeed show up and sparkles! Oops, you spilled a lil fairy dust! Hope you have a good week! xoxo
