Indian Elephant Themed 50th Birthday Card


Today's card was made for my Mums friend's 50th Birthday.

I was on strict orders to make an Indian themed card in purple with maybe an Indian elephant as she loves them and went there to work with some for her birthday!

Amazingly I came across a gorgeous Indian Elephant charm in my stash! What luck! Came in a mixed bag I bought off eBay a couple years ago!

I used:

First Edition Mulberry Kisses Papers
Printed 50 onto patterned paper and glittered the edge
Gold glitter glue
Gold mirror card
LOTV Sentiment stamps
Charm, gems, paper doily, ribbon from stash

Hope this fits the bill! Lol can't say I'm too familiar with Indian style but think I managed it! 

Made a lovely change and nice challenge though!

  9. Wow.... this is such a fabulous card Lucy.... made all the more so because of how you personalised it! You couldn't have managed better to match the 'requirements'!! LOL! LOVE the colour you used, and matched with the gold and glitter... it really has the Indian feel - particularly with the shaped gems across the centre panel. LOVE it - and I'm sure your Mum and the lady she's sending it to will too!
