Special 100th Birthday Card

I had a rush card order yesterday for a lady who often asks me to make cards, it was for a 100th birthday card for a female but she didnt want a large 100 on it!! Normally if I do a special age card I make the number the focus of the card but I appreciaite some people don't like to be reminded how old they are!!!

Well luckily I had been to a fab workshop with Julie Hickey at Craftwork Cards on Saturday and they have these new size cards which are 8 x 8 inches, perfect for more special occasions or for when a lot of people need to sign a card.
The card I made is inspired by the one we did with Julie on Saturday.

Here it is closed up and tied

Then unwrapped

And I have decorated inside with a discreet With Love on your 100th Birthday!!!!

The papers I have used are Tea and Crumpets with So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Always Artichoke and Choc Chip accessories. Card blank and wrap from Craftwork Cards, together with sentiments. I hope you like it and more importantly I hope the birthday girl does!!!

For any people local to me in West Yorkshire I have 3 places left on my Christmas workshop this Saturday afternoon, please get in touch with me at julie.kettlewell@ntlworld.com of you are interested in coming along! The cost is £7, please see previous posts for details!

    About the Chrissy cake...I'm sure it would be OK to add chopped nuts or walnuts....maybe just reduce the amount of sultanas, cherries or mixed peel....let me know how you get on.
