It was my dad’s birthday on Saturday and this is the card I made for him this year. I used the Creative Expressions Shadow Box Collection-Celebrations die set for the frame and also the small die cut elements using a colour scheme of blues and yellows.
The apt quote is a Woodware stamp and I added my dad’s age of course!
I used an 8×8 white card blank and stamped small images in sky blue Memento ink to create a subtle background. Die cut and punched stars in yellow added more interest.
Personalised with die cut letters:
The inside of the card and the envelope are decorated to coordinate with the card front. The greeting is another Woodware stamp which I like to use when creating 8×8 cards as it is a very large stamp.
It was lovely to spend a day together and I cooked a special dinner and even made a cake, but no candles as 84 would not have fitted!
