Golden Vanilla Birthday with Bundle of Love

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Golden Vanilla Birthday with Bundle of Love

Today is a very special day. It’s my lovely Mum’s birthday and it’s a special one, so I wanted to make her a particularly decadent card. She’s totally worth it!

And while fancy folds aren’t my forte, pulling together a glamorous card with just a couple of products is…

I’ve got all 3 of the golden patterns on show here. Each side has either Soft Sky or Blushing Bride on it, but I wanted just gold against Vanilla.

I did consider doing some heat embossing, but decided to go for the amazing Happy Birthday Thinlit with some Gold Foil. IT does show dimples on it, but that’s ok, there are sort of spotty bits on one of the patterns!

So I shall hope that Mum loves the card as much as I loved making it for her.

Pootles’ Picks Shopping Gifts

Everyone who shops with me gets a handmade card and gift in the post. Sometimes the gift is a handcrafted item, sometimes it’s a product share, sometimes it’s something else entirely!

And every person gets that, regardless of how large or small your order is. I am grateful to everyone who shops with me.

I do however also have a Hostess Code and always share the goodies out amongst everyone who uses it. This month, I’m trialling something different.


  • Spend over £50/€65 and receive the divine Metallic Edge Ribbon in Silver worth £6.25/€8.50
  • Spend over £100/€135 and receive the utterly beautiful Background Bits stamp set worth £19/€25
  • If you’d still like to use the code and be part of the collective, but your order is under £50, please feel free to use it and I’ll make sure to pop a little something extra in your parcel!
  • If your order is over £150/€200 please do not use the code as you will be your own Hostess and get your own rewards to spend!

    That is a beautiful card. Thank you for sharing. I have made many of your boxes for family events to use as place cards and was completely surprised when my younger brother keeps his on display on his dresser – surprised because he is 47 and not necessarily a sentimental guy.
