Define Old



This card was based on a colour challenge from SCS last week – using Kraft, Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy. You may recognize the design a bit as I did a card just like this with the word “love” a few days back. Truth be told, I did this one first but the card is for a great friend who turns 40 tomorrow and I didn’t want to show the card before the day, you know?

I used retired Spring Break designer paper and embossed “40” randomly in clear embossing powder. The set I used for this was the Big Deal numbers.

I stamped “old” in Baja Breeze using my Big Deal Alphabet. I markered the word “define” from Define Your Life using my Not Quite Navy marker and stamped it on and then paper pierced underneath.

In the lower right corner, I added a clear rhinestone brad to the centre of a button bouquet button.

Happy 40th, Karen!
