Marquee Messages Birthday

Today is my husband’s 60th birthday!  Wow – I just said that out loud (well, okay in my head).  Sounds strange.  First of all, the fact that I have a husband after swearing years ago I would NEVER get married again.  We just celebrated our third wedding anniversary in May.  Second, that I am married to someone who just turned 60!  Granted, he is a little more than five years older than I am — but still, seeing that number makes one stop for a moment and wonder “just where has the time gone?”

I wanted to make him a really special birthday card to mark this momentous occasion.  I thought and I thought and then Eureka inspiration struck!  I grabbed my Marquee Messages stamp set and started experimenting with some ideas and this is what I came up with:

I love it when a plan comes together!

This is a custom-sized card (5.5″ x 5.5″).  I also made him an envelope using my Envelope Punch Board to fit this custom-sized card (not shown).  The Stampin’ Up! products I used in the design of this card are as follows and can easily be added to your shopping card by clicking on the thumbnails below:

(I also used two retired products on this project:  Gold Wink of Stella on the stars and stripes on side of sign and medium and light blue Blendabilities® markers.)

If you have any questions about any other dimensions or techniques used on this card, do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.  (And hey, you learned today that rhinestones can represent light bulbs!)  Until next time, stamp on my friends.
