Everyone’s 30!

I’ve had 4 30th Birthdays to make cards for among my friends and family in the past few months. What was it about 1980-81 that produced these babies and brought them into our circle of friends?

This first one was made back in September for a friend. Forever Friends bears holding numbers, matted onto blue backing paper and layered onto a swirly background from the Docrafts cd.


This one was for my daughter’s partner who plays football.


The images and papers are all from the Docrafts Forever Friends Cd. even the band of spotty tape. At the time it was made I hadn’t come to grips with the way this Cd works so imported the images into MCS, this enabled me to give the rosette a drop shadow to give it a decoupage look. I also used the MCs programme to shape the text.

Made for my ex Daughter in Law from an MCS Cd, possibly Walk in Wonderland.SAM_0133 The image has been digitally layered onto the background. The ‘clothing’ and parts of the wings have been enhanced with purple glitter to give texture to the card.

This final card was made for my son who had his birthday just last week.SAM_0149

It is made from the Forever Friends Black & Gold Cd. Lots of elements and images layered together then matted onto a gold paper and cream cardstock. The ‘holes’ in the tag have been covered with card candy to match the colour theme.

4 completely different looks even though 3 of them use similar images, all to celebrate 30th birthdays.
