Sheep Thrills 70th Birthday

I like lime green and Cyan together as a colour scheme and decided to try a box card for a change. The stamp set + dies are from A.I. mainly, although the little bird is from MFT and the numbers are from a Recollections stamp set and an alphabet die. DSP is from StampinUp and the single balloon is from Spellbinders.

At first I couldn’t remember how to do the box so I followed a tutorial found on Pinterest. As it happened one of the finished cards shown, featured a sheep stamp set by another company, and my card was born. I had been looking for ideas on how to use my new set and the example really helped me with mine. This stamp set from A.I. really amuses me.

As I was working I was thinking about who I should give the resulting card to and I remembered it is my sister’s 70th birthday this year. I figured I would have some fun rubbing in the fact she is 70 as she always has a go at me for being older and this is how the numbers came about. I added some sparkle to the heart, the numbers at the front and on the balloons. Her birthday isn’t for a while but having this ready nice and early is a good thing. It folds flat so I can store it for a while.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

    1. Thanks. It is fun to be able to poke at her a little bit. She always comments on my being a couple of years older.


  1. This is an AWESOME card Johanna, and YAY for having your sister’s card done so early! So glad our challenge colors worked for your card too! Thanks so much for sharing this FUN and fabulous box card with us at The Color Hues Challenge! Marcia (DT)

  2. Many thanks. After my slight fiasco with the z-fold one I thought I had better make something else along the same lines so I would hopefully remember how to do it in the future.
