My first card is for a member of our Ladies Probus Club, who will be turning 90 this year! Of course, I'm called the 'baby' of this club, as I'm nowhere near that old! However, when I joined at 60 years of age, a few years ago (lol) I was so impressed by the sprightliness of some of these ladies who were then in their 80s . As they say, 'it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years!' These inspirational ladies are testament to that, and I feel privileged to know them.
A side-opening card but same design - I decided that the side opening worked better with the fan - just an A2 card, but you need a 6" x6" envelope for it to fit comfortably. This card is also for an elderly friend of mine, but not from the same club. I am making so many CAS cards these days, that it's a nice change to make 'prettier' cards at times.
Recipe for cards:
Paper: pattern paper from a 6 x 6 paper pad from my stash (I do collect these small pads, as they are so useful, and I love variety), Silver glitter paper
Dies: Top Dog Dies: Isabella Fan, Happy Birthday Banner, Kaisercraft little numbers, MFT rolled rose, Memory Box Gentle Leaf, bow from Creative Die - floral bouquet
Punch: Stampin' Up! small butterfly
