Number of Years

Today is my beautiful daughter-in-law’s birthday!  This is a milestone one for sure!  We celebrated while watching the Superbowl last night at some friends’ house.  So, here is the card I made for her.  I LOVE that the new Large Number Framelits make it SO easy to personalize a card!  Those that attended my Botanical Blooms class will recognize this layout…just changed it up a little!

 

Number of Years
 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Hello Honey, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Tip Top Taupe, a 2-1/2 x 3-3/4 piece of Whisper White was added at the top and the greeting from Number of Years was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink along the bottom.
  • A 1-3/4 x 4 strip of Botanical Gardens was punched with the Triple Banner Punch at the bottom and adhered on the front.  A 1/2 x 4 strip of coordinating print in Botanical Gardens was added down the center.
  • The numbers 30 were cut from Botanical Gardens DSP with the Large Number Framelits and adhered on the Whisper White piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added a flower, leaf and small flowers cut with the Botanical Builder Framelits to the front.  I added Rhinestones to the centers of the small flowers and an It’s My Party Enamel Dot to the large flower!

 

Number of Years inside
 

  • Inside, I cut a 3/4 x 5-1/4 strip of coordinating DSP and adhered along the left side of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • The greeting was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • In the bottom corner, the floral stems were stamped with Mossy Meadow Ink and the flowers with Pool Party, Hello Honey and Cajun Craze.

 

Unfortunately, I had already signed it before I took the picture!  Sorry about that!  lol!
