I'll start this year with commission cards as I was asked to make a birthday card for a lady turning 50. I don't personally know the lady in question so I decided to make two cards which would be different from each other in style. The only thing the person buying the card wanted was that the '50' be visible on the card. For the first card I used the gorgeous 'Blossom Spray' stamp by Stampendous which I watercoloured with Distress Markers. The sentiment (says 'Congrats' in Finnish) and the numbers are stickers, and the only embellishments are a few rhinestones scattered among the flowers and the ribbon tied into a bow. The background paper is by Lili of the Valley, which I matted onto grey cardstock.
I made the second card with Art Impressions' 'Dotty' which I coloured with Distress Markers, fussy cut out and attached with foam adhesives. The number is again a sticker but this time I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. The background papers are by Pink Paislee and Dovecraft, once again matted onto grey carstock.
