8x8 70th birthday commission

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs
It's a bit dull and overcast here but at least it's dry!

A work colleague asked me to make a card for her Mum's 70th birthday and she wanted it to be CAS and include alcohol, karaoke and kindle! I puzzled for days on what to do, and played about on the computer,  and here is the finished card :o)


 I didn't have time to think about buying a champagne flute die as it might not have arrived in time, so I made my own in SCAL, then cut it with my ancient little Cricut. Likewise with the 70. Both were cut from a piece of glittercard which was a creamy white.
Pearlised panel was cut with Spellbinders Grand Nesties then embossed with Embossalicious folder. I used clear gems from stash for the bubbles.



 For the inside I opened a Word Doc and inserted a piece of sheet music and I used WordArt for the text. I didn't like the kid bit as this is for a 70 year old lady, so I changed it to Queen but forgot to take a pic after the change!
Next, I took a photograph of my own kindle and faded the page in PSP, then added the greeting using the Papyrus font.
I am very happy to report that the customer was bery pleased with it, thank goodness :o)

Great job Jackie, don't think I could have made one for that request! My strangest was a wedding card for a couple who owned a pizza shop, with a young son, who love rabbits and who were going to Australia for their honeymoon!!

You're so clever doing all that.... I do hope the person who ordered it was ultra grateful with the amount of work you put into it! I'm sure the recipient loved it being so personalised... you're very patient!
