Vintage 60th birthday with Everything Eleanor…

My friend was organising a surprise birthday party for one of her friends and asked me to make a special birthday card.  The brief was anything to do with wine and something classy.  I don’t have any stamps that are specifically wine related, so I decided to make the card in wine colours with a vintage style … maybe a tenuous link but that’s all I had to work with!

A little bit of inking in crumb cake, applied with a sponge dauber, helped to give the card a distressed, vintage look …

For texture and a touch of luxury, I added some crochet trim, very vanilla seam binding ribbon and a vintage brad – which completed the look.

cardstock: cherry cobbler, very vanilla; stamps: everything eleanor; ink:  basic grey, crumb cake; accessories:  labels collection framelits, typeset alphabet dies, big shot, adhesive pearls, very vanilla seam binding ribbon, crochet trim, vintage brad, stampin’ dimensionals, glue dots.

Everything Eleanor retirement wish…

I made a card for my friend, Jan, who retired just before Christmas

using the everything eleanor and layered labels stamp sets  …

The apothecary accent framelits were perfect for die cutting the stamped labels, and I handcut the flowers with my paper snips from Stampin’ Up!

Jan is one of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.  She is so friendly and will help anyone.  She’s also really calm – I don’t think I’ve ever seen her panic – she remains cool, calm and collected at all times!

Jan is now enjoying her well earned retirement and hopefully having some time to pamper herself for a change.
