Happy 30th Birthday Marissa

Today was my daughter in law Marissa’s 30th bday!

Here is the birthday girl:

Are you surprised I used a Sizzix Pop ‘N Cuts die again? Told you I loved them!

For the card top:

I used a stamp and die set by Stefanie Barnard for Sizzix, called “Jar” #65-8699.

I coloured the jelly beans with Stampin’Up inks and Hero Arts Shadow inks.  I stamped directly in the jar and then I stamped some on white cardstock and cut them with the matching die.  Easy Peasy as Stephanie always says…. LOL  I stamped and cut the jar and its cover.  I mounted everything with foam dots to the card.

The pattern paper is Bella Blvd #587 Bridal Shower (the little flowers on the reverse).

The card base is Stardream ivory and the green CS is from my stash (Lasting Impression I think)…

The butcher string around the cover is The Twinery Caribbean.

The number 30 was cut with Memory Box dies Classic Number #98362 out of shimmer cardstock.

The happy  circle was stamped with a Stampin’Up set:  Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set from last year #122617))

I cut the two with circle dies.

The ribbon is from my ribbon supplies, but I think that it’s from May Arts.

OK now the inside of the card…  I inspired by this card on this blog:  The dining room drawers.  Helen (Cryer) creates beautiful and imaginative Pop ‘N Cuts cards.  She is amazing.

So I copied the Gorjuss girl sitting on the edge of the table with a cake behind her.  My cake was stamped with a Stampin’Up stamp from “Bring on the cake” #121958

The cat comes from a different Gorjuss girl Ruby #907103.  The Gorjuss girl was stamped, scanned and printed a little bigger.  It was then coloured with alcohol markers.  The picture makes the colouring look funny a bit – the shading looks a lot better in real life….

My tablecloth was made by cutting the same patterned paper as the one used on the front of the card with a scalloped circle die (Sizzix)

The happy was cut with a Memory Box die “Happy Script”.  I was a bit disappointed with this die. … It is so much bigger than I expected… but it works in this instance.

I repeated the 30 from the front of the card and glued it on a scalloped rectangle cut a Spellbinders die #S4-255

The cat seemed to be sitting in mid air when I glued it, so I placed the little piece of the scalloped circle that I remove from the tablecloth to make it fit on the “table”… It is always good to keep all scraps until the projet is done 🙂

The Pop ‘N Cuts is the Sizzix Pop ‘N Cuts insert die (Sizzix #657798 – Label 3D) placed in the Pop ‘N Cuts square base:  Sizzix Pop ‘N Cuts Square with ornate edge #658378.

As explained by Helen from the Dining Room Drawers blog, I folded the top section of the label down flat, and I secured the base formed (the top of the table) with an extra piece of cardstock glued to the underneath.  I also reinforced the back of the Gorjuss girl with a piece of sturdy cardstock so that it wouldn’t bend back.

The bottom of the cake stand was secured to the top of the table with a mini glue dot, but was fastened to the wall with a little “box” shape that folds flat when the card is closed.

The flower was cut with Cheery Lynn Design die from pink stardream cardstock.  I added a pink gem to the center.

I added some Stampin’Up Dazzling Diamond glitter here and there on the front and inside of the card with a glue pen.

That’s it (Marissa loved her card… yeah)

Thanks for visiting my blog – Merci de votre visite.
