My brother turned 50 this month and we had a family dinner celebrating. With a big Birthday like this I wanted to make a special birthday card for him. So I pulled out some of the new products that are being released in the new Occasions Catalogue and made this card.
I used Basic Gray as my card base and then layered Basic Black on top and some new Designer Series Paper on top. This paper is the new Classic Garage paper stack. I used the retired Large Numbers Framelits and embossed them to add some extra detail. I used the foil sheets for the numbers as well and with the heat from the heat tool it melted some of the foil and that’s how you get the look of the white and smoky slate.
The cogs were all cut out using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and I have used the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. You can earn this foil for FREE with an order of $90 from January 3rd, 2019.
I stamped on the envelope to match it in with the card and I added an insert in the card to write on and stamped some images on the insert as well. I really love how the card turned out and my brother liked the card too. His wife makes cards and so he understands that a bit of time would have gone into making this card for him.
