I hope you've had a happy weekend. It's certainly starting to feel like spring has sprung around here and it couldn't come soon enough. Hello, sunshine! :)
But enough about the sunshine, how about some shiny card instead? It was my SIL's birthday the other weekend. Not just any birthday. A BIG birthday. Cue one of my favourite sentiments for the big birthdays and some shiny card (I know, it's gold. Again!) for a super quick CAS card that's a little sassy and a little cheeky too *wink*
- Stripes are so on trend right now. For my stripes I wanted thicker black stripes to accomodate the '40' and thinner white stripes to accommodate the stamped sentiment. I also knew that I wanted the top and bottom to be a black stripe. It takes a little bit of maths, but it's worth the brain-ache to make it fit!
- Play with your scraps! The gold card is actually a scrap from this project. I had it lying on my desk and little did I know that it would actually end up shining in the spotlight of another project.
The texture of that gold cardstock is hard to capture...but here's another angle anyways:
Thank you so much for visiting today! :)
N.B The gold cardstock is from my ancient stash. If anyone knows where you can purchase it from, feel free to drop me a note!
