50th Birthday Card

I made this quick card tonight for a work colleague who is based in the London Office, he let it slip last week that he is 50 this week lol

So I thought I’d make him a wee card… just to wish him a happy birthday.

I was good remembering to make it entirely out of card from “The Pile” 😉

Supplies List :-

  • Dark Blue Cardstock (blue on the outside and white on the inside)
  • Red Cardstock
  • Grey  Textured Cardstock from American Crafts
  • Nestabilities Labels 1 Set
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Stix 2 3D Glue Dots
  • “50” from stickers in my stash (had them aaages)
  • White Opaque pen for faux stitching.

Scrap Challenge

I was tidying up my desk in the workshop tonight, you know what it’s like once you start making card, you tend to get everything out…

I was left with a small pile of offcuts (below) and set myself a mini challenge… to make a card with the scraps.


Here’s what I made… a small card for my hubby, just sending him some love and thanking him for trailing away out this evening to do a job for me 🙂

He came back in at 10.45pm, opened up his card and said “Is this me on the front of the card” it wasn’t intentional but when you look at it, it looks like a face! 2 eyes and 2 front teeth lol… hmmm… must have been thinking about him subconciously, and here’s me thinking I was making an abstract man card 🙂



I think i’ll set myself a mid week scrap challenge every week, it was fun!  anyone else fancy joining in?
