What a Year!

My sister was born in 1964. I remember when my parents brought her home. I was so excited! She was born the night the Beatles made their US television premiere on the Ed Sullivan Show. The doctors and nurses were very busy trying to catch a glimpse of the show, but unfortunately missed most of it because that is when my sister chose to enter the world!

I made this card for her birthday this year using the Number of Years photopolymer stamp set. I love this set! It's going to be so much fun using the numbers for custom cards. Now we need a set of letters just as big with framelits to match! I used the banner from the same set to write my own message, but the stamp set comes with plenty of words to put into the banner if you choose.

  • Card Base: Island Indigo card stock cut to 5-1/2" x 4-1/4".  Use Large Polka Dot TIEF to emboss front. Set aside. (I apologize that the photo doesn't show the embossing very well. I'm working on getting a new camera!)
  • Whisper White card stock rectangle: stamp numbers using Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Island Indigo and Watermelon Wonder Classic Stampin' Pads.
  • Cut Basic Black card stock to matt Whisper White piece.
  • Add Boho Blossoms flower using matching card stock scraps. Adhere using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Stamp banner using Basic Black ink. Write or stamp your greeting inside the banner.
  • Adhere banner using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere rectangle to the center of the card base. Make recipient smile when you give this card!
