Stealing an idea!

Today I needed to make a fiftieth card for a male..... I know! complete lack of inspiration.
And then I just happened to look at today's ShowCASe on Less is more and I saw this card (click on the link to see it) And that was it. I was inspired, so I immediatley tootled off and made my version of this card.

The numbers are banana frog stamps stamped with nougat fresco paint from PaperArtsy. I also used the script from PaperArtsy, again with the nougat paint, in a masked strip. I don't know who made the happy birthday but I use it alot.

While I was at it I also needed a 12th birthday card for a boy, and used similar techniques to create a totally different card.


  1. So glad I inspired you, Joanne and great CASE of my card. Ideal for a guy too, they are sooo hard to make cards for! xx

  2. Two fantastic cards Joanne, they look great.

  3. Loving that bit of dimension !!

  4. Works well, that bundle of elements. Really like what you did with the idea, I especially like the 12 card.
