70th Birthday Card For Carol

A little birdie told me that my friend Carol would be celebrating a milestone birthday - her 70th.  A great opportunity to use my SU! Memorable Moments set to mark the occasion!

I love this anniversary card made by Julie that I have pinned to my Cards to Case board on Pinterest and I based my design on Julie's lovely card.  I started off by making a Rose Red side opening A6 card and  I embossed a Very Vanilla CS panel with the Vintage Wallpaper folder.  I highlighted the embossing with gold gilding wax by using a muslin cloth to pick up some wax and then I gently rubbed and buffed over the raised areas.  I layered the Vanilla panel to a Brushed Gold CS mat and tied Rose Red seam binding ribbon around the mat before adhering it to the card front.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment label and die cut the leaves and flowers.  I glued the leafy stems to the embossed panel, popped up the label and added some shaping and dimension before attaching the flowers to the label.  I added  a butterfly and completed the card front by sprinkling on a few rhinestones.

Here's the inside and the envelope where I echoed the sentiment label, butterfly and leaves and flowers from the card front.  Thanks to Julie for the inspiration, I was happy how this card turned out.  I was also happy that Carol loved the card and still spoke to me after I'd drawn attention to her age LOL!
