Masculine 40th Birthday
I have just received a whole lot of exciting things in the mail over the last couple of days and sadly have not had time to play with them. School went back this week after the Easter break and my 3yr old son is struggling with asthma. Last night he had a bad attack that nearly had us going to the hospital. Today we are seeing the doctor to have him checked.
I made this card the other day as a friend needed a 40th birthday card for her male friend. I decided (being a male card) to go with a fairly basic design.
I started with a base of Always Artichoke, layered with Very Vanilla (pierced of course!), and again with some Close to Cocoa. Then I took a piece of Le Jardin paper (retired) and cut it in half and used each side, putting some yummy Close to Cocoa satin ribbon (retired) over the join. The main panel is VV matted with C to C and pierced. The 'FORTY' has been stamped in AA with the retired Headline Alphabet, cut out and popped up on foam squares. The sentiment below was made using the Just Rite Brayton Font and the rectangular stamper. Finished off by adding some copper brads to the corners.
That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)
