It's Your Birthday, Dad!

Happy Thursday, Crafty Friends!  Today just so happens to be my dad's 70th birthday!  And just in case he forgot how old he is turning today, I reminded him by putting it right on the front of his card.  Hehe!  He's going to love that!  Not really, but he's a good sport.

He LOVES my handmade cards, especially the ones I make for his birthday.  He never throws any of my cards away and keeps all of them in a special place.  How sweet, right?!

For today's share, this It's Your Birthday Dad Card was inspired by one of my previous designs that I shared with you back in June.  It's a classic design that I knew I would use over and over again.

Everything on this card is current except for the black and white striped card base.  Do you remember it?  I used the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper from the 2014 Occasions Catalog because it packed just the right punch for my design.  

You will find some of my other designs using this paper, like on my Sending Good Thoughts...with StripesSay it with Stripes Thank You, and Hooray for Today cards.  They were some of my favorites.  

Back to this card...I went all out for dad's big 
7-0!  I used the Big News Stamp Set, Star Framelits Dies, and Perfect Print Numbers Bigz Dies.

Did you spy that adorable stamped background I made for my sentiment?  

I even made a special envelope for this card with the Envelope Punch Board.  It was a necessity because of the strips that hang off the sides.  For the envelope, I used some designer series paper from a catalog past, but polka dots go so well with stripes.  At least to me they do.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and consider making one of your  own for a loved one.  Putting their age on the card gives it that personal touch and hopefully makes them feel extra special.

Well, that's all for today folks.  You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store, or click any of the links to go right to that item.
