Hope you're all having a great weekend. My sweet mom celebrated her 65th birthday yesterday. This is the card I made for her yesterday. I can't believe she's 65 years young!
My mom is very active. She seems like she never sits down. Several times a week she goes for very long walks. A few weeks ago, she joined my sisters and brother-in-law for an extreme hike outside of Taos, NM. It was 16 miles round trip and it took 10 hours! She wanted to accomplish it before her 65th b-day. She did it! She has better knees than I do. I wouldn't be able to do this hike.
My design was inspired by this card created by Angie Tieman. I love all her designs! The faux stitching was inspired by the fabulous Kristina.
I used my QuicKutz Silhouette to make my own chipboard again. I created the 65 using the Rockwell Extra Bold font on my computer. I cut out the numbers several times from Kraft cardstock and glued the layers together. I also the Silhouette to cut the numbers out from some pretty Carolyn Gavin for K & Company paper (thanks, Ericka!). No craft knife or sanding block required! I used the Big Shot to emboss some dots onto Melon Mambo cardstock. The brad-type embellishment is actually a clear button that I backed with some more Carolyn Gavin paper. On top of the button I added a kraft colored heart. I also did some faux stitching on the heart.
Thanks for looking. Have a good one!
