My Sheri Crafts #154

According to Design Team Sister, Sarah... April is National Humor Month.  Well why not?  April does have April's Fool Day and Tax Day... hee hee!  She had asked us to create a humorous card for the latest My Sheri Crafts challenge

My friend is turning 40 this month so why not make an "over the hill" card?  Well not quite.  I did use the traditional colors from the "over the hill" theme of black, silver (or gray), and white.  I made the card shaped into a "40" and made a cut of the word "forty" ... as if it wasn't obvious enough.  Both cuts were created with *SCAL

So here you have the twist... I printed the label "Happy 29th Birthday!!! (again)" on my computer and used a Spellbinder die cut to frame it.  The green flourish is a Cheery Lynn die cut and the roses are Quilted Creations die cuts

I decided to make another card... a simple one.  I found the image of metallic colorful shot glasses from the internet and printed it.  The words were printed from the computer and then I slapped them all together in different layers

*Both cards fit an A2 envelope
*SCAL: Sure Cuts A Lot

Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts


  1. Simply gorgeous Raquel! :)

  2. Raquel,
    Love both of your cards, the black and white is stunning and a great sentiment used, love the extra touches with the flowers ofcourse. The second card is never "slapped" together, very precise in its placement. Love how it looks so metalic.

  3. Raquel, that "40" card is fantastic! I love it! The other us just plain funny!

  4. Great job from both ends of the spectrum, Raquel! LOVE your elegant shaped card for your friend and that simple card w/metallic shot glasses is just a hoot!!!

  5. Love the 40's card! Great shape card with so many pretty embellishments. Fun second card!
