Forty and Fabulous

Or is it "Forty and Still Naughty?". Maybe "Forty and Foxy?". What about "Forty and Sporty?" The age of 40, there's quite a few possibilities...enough philosophy I hear you say, what about the card?

I made this for my much older friend (not). Pulled out every number stamp set I own and stamped fours and zeros on some decorative paper which resembles book pages. I was going for a slightly vintage/shabby chic look on this card so didn't heat emboss - decided to go with varying ink coverage.

Then I got my dotty embossing folder out and ran the vanilla card stock through my Big Shot. Two ribbons (why stop at one?) and I settled on "Forty and Fabulous" for the sentiment. And I love the die cut doily behind the sentiment, really makes the card in my humble opinion.

Do you like the little roses?

I got these from a lovely stamping friend in the USA.

Last, I made a matching envelope:

Well, better get to bed. Tomorrow I'm off to stamp camp with my crafty friends for two days of paper-crafting. So I should have plenty to share in the next fews weeks. But first, I have to rest up from packing my supplies into my station-wagon (it's a squeeze).

Thanks for visiting,

Love from Crafty Kim
