It's Michele's FIFTIETH Birthday!!!

Hello everyone!! Today I am posting a card for Michele-the owner of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps-50th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration. You should have come here from Angel Rivera's Blog. If you get lost along the way, go to  the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog for the entire list of blogs for the hop!!!


I chose to make a card combining "WTF 2" and "Supercalifragilistic" stamp sets.


I made the type into a cake. I created it so that the red words are to be read together and the white sentiment strips that are read together. You can see this done in typographic posters.


I mounted the sentiments over an A2 sized card that I had adhered a panel where I had done ink smooshing on it in red, pink and flicked with gold.


I added gold hearts that I had die cut with "Fun-Fetti Fri-dies."

On the inside, I used the "Shenanigans" stamp set.


Be sure to comment on everyone's blog. There will be FOUR $50 gift codes randomly drawn from the comments on the blog hop participants blogs. Next up is Mary Moisan.

Happy 50th Birthday Michele!! I hope you have a FABULOUS day!!!

So clever to fashion a cake from the sentiments, Nora! Michele will love this!

I really like the red, white and black. It is still considered very contemporary, I agree. Thank you for the inspiration!

Incredible card! I love your mixing it up with the different sentiment sets, and the cake concept. I read the "layers" just the way you intended, before reading your note- a great way to draw the eye with parallel layer colors...such a great idea!

Tammy H said...

Ooo, I like how you think. I'm guessing a strawberry margarita is your flavor of choice. Or maybe it's Michelle's.
