Birthday Card - # of Years

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Boy, was it hot here!!  Sunday was the hottest day with temps over 100!  We were suppose to go the church's annual Peach Festival but didn't have the strength or will power to go.  The youngsters went but didn't stay long, but brought home our dinner which was great as always!!

I was thinking about what to blog, and I remembered that I didn't show the birthday card I made for Joe.  I was so happy how it turned out.


Ink - Basic Black
Paper - Very Vanilla, Old Olive, scrap DSP
Stamps - # of Years, Perfect Pairings
Accessories - # of Years Dies, Triple Banner Punch, Scalloped Tag Topper
Embellishments - Twine

I cut my basic card 11" x 4 1/4" and scored in half.  My first layer of Old Olive was 5" x 3 7/8".  My second layer of DSP was  3 5/8" x 4 5/8".  My tag was cut 2" x 4 1/2.  I tied my twine in a bow and adhered it on the DSP.  I used my die to cut out my numbers and popped them up with dimensionals.   I stamped my greeting on a piece of Old Olive 3 7/8" 1 1/8".  I love this sentiment that comes in the # of Years set.

Here is the inside of the card using the Perfect Pairings stamp set.

As you can tell my picture isn't that good, but I stamped it on a piece of Old Olive 3/7/8 x 5".  He really liked his card.  Well, 2 weeks from today the girls go back to school.  I don't think they want to admit it but I think they are happy about it.  There is only so much you can do in all this heat!  Hope you have a great week ahead for you.

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

Now, this is a perfect personalized birthday card, and so great for your hubby! Love the stamp and die combo. I'd be tempted to make every birthday card for a year with this combo. We spent several days at our son's house in the valley when Wally went for his surgery, and it was HOT there. Only 80's and 90's, but we Coasties can't take the heat. So nice to come home to our much more moderate summer temps!

This is a lovely card. I especially love the number dies. I have them on my wish list. I probably won't be able to afford the stamp set that coordinates with it, but I think the dies are lovely a lone, and your card is beautiful. I like how you offset the numbers. Very classy. I hope Joe had a wonderful Birthday. Also so sorry you had to miss the peach festival at Church, that sounds like it would be fun. I miss going to church. It's about 35 minutes away and hard for me to get there.. but some day hopefully I will again. I go to a Baptist church and love and miss the fellowship and preaching. I'm sure the girls will be happy to get back to school and meet up with friends again, and meet the teachers.. It's always so exciting. Thank you for being a great inspiration and blog buddy. Have a blessed evening.
