Happy 90th Birthday

January 5, 2021

My Dad celebrated his 90th birthday last Saturday and today I thought I would share the card I made for him with you. I stamped the lighthouse, boat and birds from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Versamark ink. I sprinkled the images with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. I used a Blending Brush to add Coastal Cabana ink to the top section of the stamped card and Pacific Point ink to add colour to the bottom section of the panel.

I attached the stamped panel to Pacific Point card and then Very Vanilla card. I attached the panel to the bottom section of scored and folded Thick Very Vanilla card to create an easel card. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set onto the right hand side of Very Vanilla card using Pacific Point ink.

I attached the panel across the bottom of the stamped panel. I punched Very Vanilla card using the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch and attached it to a Pacific Point scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Dies. I attached the circles to the left hand side of the greeting. I cut “90” from Pacific Point card using the Playful Alphabet Dies and attached them to the centre of the Very Vanilla circle. I stamped the greeting from the A Good Man stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Pacific Point ink and attached it to Pacific Point card. The whole piece is attached across the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using dimensionals.

I love easel cards, they create such a “wow” and still fold flat to fit in a standard envelope.

Bye for now,
