Masculine Milestone Birthday


I made this card for a friend of mine who has a special relative turning 75 later this month. I used some blue raspberry cardstock, along with some smoky slate, white and black. The numbers, banner, and tiny tab were done with SU! large number framelit dies and the sentiment is by SNSS. The "th" was done with little $1 stick stamps I've had for ages. I added some tiny silver beads to the numbers to sparkle things up a little. I took a 2" square of silver mirror card and embossed it with a CB diamond plate ef before splitting it in two pieces diagonally for the side accents. The word "Happy" was done with a SSS die and that's pretty much all there was to it.


I'm also sharing it with the Seize the Birthday challenge - which is anything goes with a birthday theme

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

This is a great masculine milestone card Carol. I like the addition of the embossed silver mirri card at the sides, it gives a nice bit of glitz as do the silver bead accents.
