I used Lettering Delights “Millions of Mums” to make a birthday card for a friend’s milestone birthday. I love this cut-it set as all of the bits and pieces can be swapped for a personalized “mum.”
I used a lot of bright colors to celebrate both my friend’s South Florida residence and Spring. It was a lot to fun to create her tropical outfit from Basic Grey’s Sweet Threads 6″ paper pad. I used a Copic marker to add her “highlights” to her blonde hair.
The cake display case is from the Silhouette Online Store. I added a layer of acetate to the case after assembling the case (with the cakes) by placing the case on top of the acetate and hand cutting a rectangle to size. The banner is from the Silhouette Online Store and I used the print and cut feature to create the “Take a Number” sentiment on patterned pink paper. The banner and buntings are also from the Silhouette Online Store. Now is a great time to shop there as all die cuts are on sale for 50 cents through 2 May!
This card is also a T-slide. When you pull on the “ticket” at the side of the card, a surprise message pops up on the side. The interior of the card is fairly simple with another print and cut label and a small birthday cake. I added the patterned paper to both sides of the card, and I have to say, I really like the look of it.
