My BFF turned FIFTY on Tuesday, so I had to make an extra-special card for her to help her celebrate!
All of the cuts were made with my CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge and the Snowhaven paper pack.
I saw somewhere that "50 is the new 'F' word" so I had to put that inside! I also made a little speech box using the Artfully Sent frames stamp set.
These candles are extra special with their black shimmer trim bases! I lined the cutouts with a piece of the Cranberry B&T and used a black marker to mark the top and bottom of each candle. I then cut shimmer trim to fit: first the height and then in half to make the candle slivers.
Since you only turn 50 once, I blew up 50 balloons Sunday night to leave in her classroom for Tuesday morning. (Thank goodness for Hubby's air compressor! I've finally mastered the art of balloon knot tying.) I think she was a little bit surprised!
