This coming Saturday will be a BIG day for a dear friend of ours, her 80th Birthday!

I've made this birthday card before, but it's still one of my favorites for "special" birthdays. Quite some time ago Debby Hughes at lime doodle posted a card she created using this design I liked it so much I tucked it away for future use, thanks Debby.

I used a embossing folder with all types of "happy birthday" on it. Die cut a frame and dry embossed that as well (and wonder of wonder, without planning can you see how the die cut matches up with the white card stock-couldn't have done that if I wanted to).

Die cut some snazzy "80" numbers from silver glimmer paper added a sentiment on another die cut piece, the banner, stamped it and called it done.

Here's a little peak at the inside of the card...the sentiment was stamped at the top and bottom of a piece of vellum (mostly to hide the adhesive). I like the way the front focal point ties into the inside sentiment, don't you?

List of supplies:
Papertrey Ink: White card stock Number dies & layerz die Inside sentiment and border Stampin' Up: Mellon Mambo card stock
Cuttlebug: (I think) Happy Birthday embossing folder

Misc. rhinestone

Hope you'll take a moment to comment on the card, thanks,

Nancy this is PERFECT and I'm sure I know where it's going! I can't believe your embossing lined up perfect on the die cut... I just thought it was your OCD! jusssst kidding. LOVE the inside too, but I do LOVE polka dots! Hugs
