60th Birthday Card

My husband’s boss turned 60 this weekend, so I made a card for him.  Yes, I used some non-Stampin’ Up! items that I have in my stash. 

First I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder in my Big Shot with Whisper White cardstock.  I layered that on a base card of Basic Black.  Then I used my Just Rite Stamper and spelled out the words, Happy Birthday Bob and the numbers 60.  I punched it with the 1 3/4 circle, then my 2" circle and a large Giga Scallop Circle.  It is popped up with dimensionals on the front.

Inside I wanted to put 60 candles.  So I used the trio of candles from the retired stamp set, Tags & More.  I knew I couldn’t get all 60 candles on the inside left panel alone, so I cut a Whisper White panel 5 1/4 x 8 1/4 and folded it in half.  Then I stamped both sides (actually 3 sides) of it and adhered that to the inside left side.  I hope the picture shows it better than I can describe it.  I also added a 4 x 5 1/4 panel to the inside right side with the extra 6 candles I needed and the greeting.  Each of the candles were stamped with Basic Black and I used a Summer Sun marker to color the flames.  Pretty simple, but I like how it turned out.  His boss said…wow…that is a lot of candles!  lol! 

Well, I hope you are ready for the holidays.  I need to make tags, finish the bows on my packages, and make up a couple gifts yet.  I think I’ll be able to get most of it done today. 

Happy Holidays!

Hi Connie! I know that Bob is going to love this card. It’s really cute, I especially love how you did the inside. That’s really neat!! I’ll have to try that sometime.
Have a great day!
