Happy Birthday Ron

April 14, 2015

Today my husband celebrates his 60th birthday.  How time flies!

Anyway a special birthday needs a special card, so I set about creating one.  I stamped the balloons from the Sketched Birthday stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate and Tangerine Tango ink.  I stamped “make a wish” from the Perfect Pennants stamp set next to the balloons using Bermuda Bay ink.  I punched the 10cm edge of Smoky Slate card using the Scallop Edge Border Punch and then embossed it using the Argyle Embossing Folder.Ron's-60th-card-3  I wrapped the top of the card with Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine and attached it to the stamped Very Vanilla card.  The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Bermuda Bay card.  I tied a bow in a length of the Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine and attached it to the balloon strings using a Glue Dot.   Ron's-60th-2I cut the numbers from Bermuda Bay card using the retired Typeset Alphabet Dies and attached them to the embossed Smoky Slate card.

Inside I stamped the balloons once more and attached more embossed Smoky Slate card.  I also added a strip of Tangerine Tango card to “liven” it up a bit.

I’d really love to hear what you think of this card, Ron loved it.

Bye for now,
