My Uncles turned 60 on the weekend. They’re identical twins, so I made their cards similiar, but different!
This one I based on the Parisian Breeze DSP (retired). The colours I’ve used are Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze and Whisper White.
And this one I based on the Outlaw DSP (retired). The colours I’ve used are Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow and Very Vanilla.
On both cards I’ve stamped the “Happy Birthday” and frame around the number 60 from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Vintage Labels. The “60” is from Best Friends Numbers (retired) and the beer mug is from Cheers to You. I finished off each card with a jumbo eyelet and linen thread.
Well, this year my Dad turned 60! Dad doesn’t live nearby and he is visiting at the moment, so I can now show you the birthday card I made for him.
I really wanted to try and make a masculine card … meaning no flowers! That is a challenge! Instead, I went with a stars theme … cause my Dad’s a star! hehe! Plus I stuck to mostly neutral colours with Basic Black, Copper and Very Vanilla … with a dash of Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise.
The stamps I used were Classic Stars jumbo wheel with the Large Star and Star punches, Wonderful Favourites and Best Friends Numbers. I also remembered to use my Hodgepodge hardware for once! That was nice! I love the Soft Sky ribbon too … I couldn’t help putting ribbon on the card. Sorry Dad! hehe!
