Prima Darcelle Milestone Birthday Card Folio

Prima Darcelle Milestone Birthday Card Folio with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  How about a little Prima Darcelle pretty purple vintage typewriter to start your day off with a smile?  This milestone birthday card folio is a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday.

Purple is one of those colors that people usually have strong feelings about.  You either love it, or you don’t!  Personally, I have grown to appreciate the many hues that purple has to offer.  It lends a richness and a sense of royalty where ever it shows up.

TIP: Lighten up the darker hues of this Prima Darcelle  paper with a 3/8″ Grape Plaid Bow.  This ribbon 3/8″ Grape Plaid from the RRR April Ribbon Club Assortment made the prettiest triple loop bow!

TIP: Add lots of depth to your layers by separating them with foam dimensionals.

TIP:  To create the “sugar” in this spoon embellishment follow these simple steps:

  • First, fill the bowl of the spoon with hot glue.
  • Next, place the spoon in a funnel tray or over a clean sheet of printer paper.
  • Now, sprinkle Distress Glitter over the hot glue.  When the glue dries, you have a spoon full of “sugar.”

Create a box style pocket inside the card.  Now you can fill it with all kinds of birthday treats.  The card is now the gift!

Here’s a beautiful vintage silver plate spoon, and a little chocolate treat.

Milestone birthdays are often accompanied by birthday parties.  So I created a little accordion style photo album to tuck inside the pocket along with the tea bag and honey stick.

Now you can capture all the memories of that special day in style.

Tell me: how do you feel about the color purple?  Love it?  Avoid it at all costs?  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Prima Darcelle Floral Typewriter Card

Hello Friends!  I’m popping in very quickly today to share this Prima Darcelle Floral Typewriter card with you.  If you love purple, you’re going to love this card!  It’s layered up with richly patterned papers, fussy cuts, ephemera pieces, die cuts and loads of pretty purple flowers.

Prima Darcelle Floral Typewriter Card: Go Big or Go Home

Most of the cards I make are 5″ x 7″ top fold cards.  But the patterns and images from the 12×12 Darcelle collection are BIG…so I had to go big or go home with this card base.  The card  base measures a chunky 6 1/2″ x 7 1/2″  This gave me lots of room to layer in lots of the beautiful collection elements.

TIP: Place dimensionals between card layers to separate patterns and create lots of depth and dimension.

TIP: Die cut a card layer from white cardstock to break up all the intense color.  Because this die cut layer was not wide enough to completely frame my main image, I cut it in half and then adhered it behind the main panel.

TIP: Frame the focal image with corner bow clusters and the die cut piece.  This helps it to stand out from all the other layers.

Prima Darcelle Floral Typewriter Card: A Peek Inside

There’s plenty of room inside for a pair of treat pockets.

Tuck in a journal card, chocolate, tea bag and honey stick.  Now you’ve just turned this lovely card into a gift.

How are you all holding up?  Keeping busy?  Staying positive?  I’ve been swamped in the studio with special orders for my Etsy shop.  I’m also working on my next kit release for The Button Farm Club.  So no time to be bored or blue here.  As long as I have paper, flowers and ribbon, I’m good!

I’m keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers!

Thanks for stopping by!
