Happy 30th Birthday Card.

Hi everyone sorry I have not being visiting many of your blogs I was away for a few days.To days card is a Birthday Card for my Son in Law who's Birthday was yesterday..Making a card for a man I find very difficult and  my brain seems to go blank ,so here is my effort.I used S.B. Opulent Ovels,and 5x7 Enchanted Labels 28.I made a hinged card  thanks to Christina Griffiths tutorial ,and used Brown and cream card stock from paper mill direct. I added pale cream mesh that I had in my stash. I typed my sentiment on the computer,and could not fit the From part .The brown did not photo well and I was rushing to the post.Thank you for visiting I love to get feed back.


  1. Sorry Ita for one this is not for me! I usually love your what you produce but the mix of things does not do it for me. It may look better in reality than the photo does it credit. Sorry!

  2. This is a beautiful card Ita ,i especially like the mesh it looks so swish and webby { is that a word } against the black , a great man card i think .

  3. Hi Ita, I think both the opulent ovals and the enchanted labels have both been used brilliantly. Using the hinged card certainly worked well, but (I know what you are saying) the photograph did not pick up well the work that went into the card especially with the use of the brown card on the enchanted labels. I am sure that it was lovely in real life. That makes it sound as if I don't like it, but the brown doesn't do the card justice. (I hope that sounds better lol) Hugs, Jen xx

  4. Hello Ita,
    I like the mesh - very original. Nice to show something that hasn't already been done. I like the chocolate and cream combination, very masculin. I am sure your son in law was delighted. Hope he had a happy birthday.
    Happy Wednesday

  5. Hi Ita
    Hope you are well.
    I think you have done a great job with the card but Im not a fan of the mesh. . . . .not just on your card, not keen on mesh full stop.
    Take care.

  6. Hi Ita. This is so very pretty. I really like mesh but can't seem to find it here. However I don't think it goes with this particular card and I think it would look beautiful without it as the layering of the oval dies is lovely.
    Bye for now.
    Love Val x
