I mentioned last week that I’ve gotten two orders for birthday cards for 40-year-olds. This is the second one.
The image is “Flirty Seniors” from “Make It Crafty“, as usual printed on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics. The text reads something like “80 years is nothing”.
Inside I put a panel for a little greeting, as well as a little “booklet” on the left tied with a bow of seam binding colored with blue and green Copics.
The text reads: “Huh? Only half? Oops! Missed a little!” (left). “This is half!” (right) This “little” guy is about half the size of the one on the front, thus the “half” thing.
Page 3 and 4 in my little booklet. “This is the better half!” (left) “Now you can choose! Happy 40th birthday!” (right)
On the back I put the name of the birthday boy and his birthday.
My email and blog address are on the inside flap of the back along with the following phrases: “This card is handmade by Elin Venge. A unique and special copy just for you!”
I’ve used the following Copics to color my images.
PP: “Blåbärspaj” and “Pratstund” from Maja Design’s “Fika” Collection.
CS: Bazzill parakeet and Admiral.
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Berries: Kort og Godt
Pearls Inkido and Kaisercraft (green)
Ribbon: Hug Snug seam binding in Winter White – colored with Copics.
