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.
