Sophie & Lucy's 21st Birthday Cards

❤๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š Happy 21st Birthday Sophie ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›❤

๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ❤Happy 21st Birthday Lucy ❤๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š

Good Morning Ladies,

I am sure today is going to be full of fun and laughter as it's our Babys' 21st Birthday,  I can barely believe its possible that they could be 21.  They were a HUGE surprise to us but from day one they have filled our lives with fun and laughter, they find ways to make everyday fun, mostly playing pranks on Paulror each other!!  they haven't once complained about having to Celebrate their 21st Birthday at home with Mum & Dad !! They still haven't decided what they want to do for their Celebratory Dinner.  Girls if you are reading this just to check that I mentioned you ๐Ÿ˜‰,  please know that Dad and I are immensely proud of the beautiful young ladies that you have become.  We love you both so very much too. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ❤๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š

I decided to go for a simple Kraft Card design for both Sophie & Lucy's Birthday cards, I bought a new Embossing Folder from 'kwan Crafts' on Amazon, luckily it was on Prime as I only ordered it Monday ๐Ÿ˜€.  The first thing I did was to die cut the aperture on each card front, I then used the Embossing Folder to add some Texture,  I had to extend the Embossing to fit across my card front that measured 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 inch.
I put foam pads around the under side of the Heart/ Star aperture and adhered some acetate, I adhered a piece of Acetate to cover the front of the aperture too, (after popping metallic sequins inside the acetate pocket.) I die cut a narrow frame using the nesting dies for each shape, it neatened the whole thing and finished off the aperture,  hiding the workings. 
I placed the die cut 21's into the center of the coloured card that I had trimmed to be a fraction smaller than the front piece,  I used foam tape to stick the front onto the red/blue card and adhered both pieces to their base cards, the only finishing touch that I used was a tiny little tag die and die cut their names from matching card,  I finished thd tags with a double bow of twine that I had coloured using matching stampin Blends. 
I hope their cards. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day,

Love and hugs to all of you, 



  1. Morning Ladies

    Sandra-two absolutely gorgeous cards, classy and elegant. Please with the girls a very Happy 21st birthday from me. I hope you have a lovely day with them.

    I had a relaxing day yesterday- did the food shopping during the day which is a rare treat. We went for a walk to the beach after lunch then I managed to start a challenge card.


  2. Morning Everyone
    Two very elegant cards SANDRA.
    A very Happy 21st to your beautiful girls.

    It looks as though the rain last night has rids us of the white stuff so fingers crossed we might have some dry weather for a little while.

    Want to sort out my CC today and get them sent off.

    The CAFE is OPEN so popin when you can.
    HUGS are ontheir way to you all.PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY AND SOPHIE Not celebrating as you’d probably want to but I hope you have a lovely day
    I am still churning ideas in my head for cc’s I have done a couple and probably won’t do any more but I think that’s what’s helping me drop off to sleep It’s a great way of clearing the mind of worries etc and just concentrate on card ideas!
    I am having a WhatsApp chat later with some friends
    Take care all xx

  4. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SOPHIE AND LUCY, Enjoy your special day.

    Not sure what’s happening today I will just take the day as it comes, I need to work on my CC and have to confess I haven’t finished off last week’s yet, this last week has been so up and down. I will ring to see if my sister made it home yesterday, I guess if she did she would have been exhausted.

    Have a good day everyone and stay safe.
    Love Brenda xxx

    1. I hope your sister made it home yesterday Brenda, and wasn’t to wiped out.

    2. Hi Brenda. Fingers crossed Anne gets home today. Sending you love and hugs from Mum and I xx

    3. Sorry Sandra forgot to say both of your cards are just perfect, I love them both.
      Update on my sister, she had to be taken home by ambulance because of being on oxygen, she waited so long the ward staff offered her a bed for the night, No surprise she declined, ambiance crew finally arrived and she got home at 11.45 pm. She has been desperate to have a bath, which the night nurse helped her to have before she settled down for the night. When I rang this morning she was still resting so will call her this afternoon.

    4. Glad to hear your sister is home. Hope all well xxx

  5. Hi Sandra and ladies
    Two lovely cards for the girls on display today..
    Please with Both Lucy and Sophie a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me.
    A very foggy day today. It looks quite miserable out I must say. But at least we haven’t got any of the white stuff. A friend who I used to work with at the school was going for a walk as I went down my path. So we went for a socially distance walk. I must say it was lovely to have a chat as we were walking along. I’d met a few people who’d stop for a chat during the summer. But the weather in the winter isn't conducive to stopping and having a chat.
    Not much on the cards here either today. Still haven’t done any Groovi cards. But I do have quite a few already done. I looked in my box that I kept my old cards in and found another lot of new groovi cards I’d made a while ago. I was looking for the card with the elephant silhouette like Maria had made as one of her challenge cards. Didn’t find any of my really old cards.
    Take care and stay safe everyone.

  6. Good morning everyone
    Two fabulous cards Sandra, like the EF

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sophie and Lucy, have a lovely day !

    Rain stopped hopefully for all day so going for a nice walk soon and then this afternoon hoping to finish some cc for this week.Brain very busy with ideas but still after all these years of card making I'm struggling to make them actually into cards. I facetimed with my parents yesterday and it was nice catching up. They showed me the snow outside their house and it looked beautiful with the sun glittering in all the white stuff but here now I like to see spring coming with all it's beauty. Snowdrops and daffodils are out so not too far away.
    Brenda- hope your sister be alright and she getting better each day.
    Many hugs are sent for you all and wishes for a nice day.

  7. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. I love Soph and Lucy’s cards. They are perfect for them. The style would be good for anyone. I hope you all have a nice birthday dinner tonight. I’ve seen the girls grow from such shy young teenagers into beautiful young ladies. No surprise that you and Paul are so proud of them.
    During our phone call yesterday I managed to get my Everest of part used card, dies, stamps etc. that I push to the back of my desk as I craft all sorted into piles that just need putting away now then I will hopefully get my cc done and sent to you. That’s the plan for today at the moment anyway.
    Lynda, I hope you and Terry are ok xx
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for Lynda, Mum and all in need. Take care xx

  8. Hello, really heavy rain here again.

    Well most of the day yesterday we had the plumber here, trying to find the supposed leak. After not being to use any water most of the day, they could not find any leaks thank goodness. Why is it that when you are told not to go to the toilet, you immediately want go.

    Wish your beautiful daughters a very Happy 21st birthday, another milestone. Hope they get to celebrate properly soon.

    Two great cards, although to be very controversial, I never use craft card, yours look lovely, mine always look scruffy.

    Going to have a go at my c card today, hope you are all having a good day, Lilian

  9. Hi everyone
    Happy Birthday Lucy and Sophie. I hope you’re all having a lovely day ๐Ÿ˜Š xx
    Two gorgeous shaker cards Sandra, I’m sure they will be treasured.
    A frosty start, but been raining since mid morning, looks to be stopping now though.
    Hope everyone having a good day
    Sending hugs to you all xxx
