Fabulous at 50

Thursday my friend turned 50 and tonight we’re celebrating her. Wow – 50 already! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (I’m naturally YEARS away from that – still a kitten of 29 ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

This fabulous lady loves her shoes, bags and (like me) Rock Music ๐Ÿ™‚ So how to combine these into a present?

First I found the items I wanted to make. SVGCuts is one of my favorite go-to places and she didn’t disapoint ๐Ÿ™‚ Then I found the paper – all perfect together. And what more perfect than a 50’s theme for at 50th Birthday????

Ok – first of is theย Stylish Handbag from theย  Brunch Party SVG Kit:


I used AC Cardstock in Black and Robin’s Egg and decorated with papers from Authentique’s “Fabulous” Collection along with glitter paper in teal, glossy paper in black and gold foiled cardstock.

I inked all the edges with Distress Ink in matching colors and added a few cut outs from the paper kit to the tags, that I attached with a ball chain and decorated with an fluffy embellishment from my stash.


I made the bag in 75% and it’s perfect for holding my gift for my friend.

I also made her a card and my choice fell on the “Party Card – 33” and the sleeve from the “Happy Birthday Card – 45” from the Rockin and Rollin SVG Kit:


This is made from AC Cardstock in Black and Vanilla and decorated with the same papers as the bag except the sleeve which is made from paper from the “Dapper” Collection also by Authentique.


I decorated the sleeve with a few stickers from the kit and some flowers from Prima plus a few coordinating enamel dots.


The Envelope is made from the “Fabulous” paper.

Now I’m really excited to see her reaction to this present – I mean – that is one bag she doesn’t have in her HUGE collection ๐Ÿ˜‰


Thanks for joining me today – please remember to leave me a small comment below and have an awesome and crafty weekend โค
