Splodge Away mat and Silhouette Cameo 60th Birthday card

Hello Friends,

Today, one of my friends is celebrating a special birthday.  I made her this card the other day, but decided not to post it on here until today in case she saw it!




The base colour of this card is Stampin' Up's Certainly Celery, the rest of the pieces of this card were all cut on my Silhouette Cameo using Very Vanilla, you can see the screen shot above.

I stamped the top mat with Versa Mark ink, let it dry for a few minutes and then brayered over it with Certainly Celery ink.  I used my new Splodge Away mat, which made it pretty easy.  I made the label shape myself out of combining two shapes from the Silhouette Studio store by welding them together, which again was cut out using Very Vanilla, which I stamped in Versa Mark and brayered over.  The same for the flag shape at the top of the card.  I stamped the circle using markers and a Stampin' Up flower from the set called You Are Loved and finished that little section with the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon.

The 60 was stamped and the circle pricked using the Paper Piercing Pack Essentials kit from Stampin' up, then I carefully used a marker pen to highlight each little pricked hole.

I then added the finishing touches - faux stitching and 3 little pearls.

Happy crafting with your Silhouette Cameo and Splodge Away mat!
