40th Birthday Card

Hello! I hope your Wednesday is off to a good start! Today I’d like to share a 40th Birthday card that I made.


I started with a white A2 card base. To this I added a yellow layer that I had run through the Cuttlebug for some texture.

The “the big 40” is cut from “Life Is A Party”. I wanted it as big as the card could handle! I used a slightly brighter yellow for the “40” and the sentiment circle; both were attached with pieces of dimensional foam adhesive. The two sentiment circles are created with a Creative Memories circle punch.

The sentiment punch is from Emma, over at My Creative Time. I’ve been using this particular stamp a LOT lately!

Once I had the card put together it just seemed to be missing something. I grabbed the Stickles and went to it! Once I was satisfied there I did a small amount of doodling with a white gel pen and called it a day.


I hope you enjoyed this project. Go and do something craft today!
