70 Years! Then You Should Celebrate!

tisdag 5 februari 2013

Hi friends! Wecome to my blog!
Here is a card for a man who will soon complete 70 years. I let the sentiment to be in the spotlight, and it says:
"It's not the years in your life that counts, but the life in your years."

I stamped the sentiment from Slöjd Detaljer on black CS and heat embossed it with white embossing pouder. Then I drew around the edge with a white pencil and wrote "Let Remain" in the corner.

I adhered it over a piece of corrugated cardboard and chipboard, that I first had sprayed with Dylusions and Distress Ink and then stamped with a stamp from Inkido with textured pattern.

I used FabScraps Organic Herbs Two patterned paper and a piece of old glitter border.
At the top of the card I adhered the Pine Needle Border that was cut with a Memory Box die.
The numbers got a lot of different colors before I was satisfied, then a layer of Crackle Accents.

Then the bird had a layer of Glossy Accents before I adhered them together with a piece of measuring tape that I first had circled number 70.
 A pair of black pearls finished it all.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderfully creative week!
Hugs, Birgit
