Masculine 80th birthday

Last weekend my Dad came to Sydney, visiting the kids, but also to go to an 80th birthday for an old work friend from his Canberra Times days.  While we were out shopping at Rouse Hill Town Centre, he asked me were he could buy a birthday card … LOL!!  I said I could make one!

And this is the card I made …

DSC00872

Using the colours Kiwi Kiss and Basic Black … I embossed the damask image with black powder and then stamped it off in Kiwi Kiss.  Then I embossed the “Happy Birthday” from the Level 2 Hostess set, Occasions for All, and the “80” from Best Friends Numbers (retired).  I wasn’t very happy with my “80” … it’s a bit crooked!  Oh well, it is handmade!!  A little bit of Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon finished it off.

Thanks for looking 🙂
