Today is my mother’s 95th birthday. Not only is she 95 but she is healthy and lives (fairly) independently. By fairly I mean she lives in a little cottage by herself in an independent living facility. She is the queen of the place and everyone knows her. She is truly amazing. I thought this card was appropriate for her because she is like a rainbow of color wherever she goes.
To make this card I first stamped the background using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Then I took different colored scraps and cut pieces that are 1/2″ wide. The colors I used are Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point and Gorgeous Grape. I just realized I used every color in the Brights family except Melon Mambo! I adhered these strips to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out using a die from the Stitched Rectangles set. I popped this up using Dimensionals.
Lastly, I cut the word Happy from the Merry Christmas die set in Basic Black and stamped the worth birthday from the stamp set called A Wish For Everything.
Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope your day is as great as you are!
This is a great idea, and I love that rainbow. Happy birthday to your mom; she sounds amazing! (Well, she’d have to be. Look at you!!)
Susan, this is an absolutely LOVELY card. I love the background, which looks like DSP. That colorful backdrop is absolutely delightful
Happy Birthday to your Mom, Susan! I’m sure she’ll love this card -so pretty!
