60th Birthday Card


One of my dear friends turned sixty last weekend and her family had a wonderful party for her.  I was so bummed I wasn't able to go, but I was thinking about her all day long.  I really hadn't used this set yet and thought it would be perfect for this occasion.

I have been on a Night of Navy kick lately.  That is where my eye goes all the time when I am looking at different things.  It doesn't have to be SU, it can be anything.  Isn't if funny how your eyes are drawn to certain things.  

To make this card I have used the following products:

Night of Navy Card Stock #100867

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
  • scraps for the "60"

Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock #141418

  • scraps for the "60"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" 

2016-2018 In Color DSP Stacks #141408

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" Ruched Ribbon around the top two layers.  Then I popped them up with dimensionals to give them some dimension.  I offset the Sweet Sugarplum and Night of Navy "60" to give the look of a shadow.  

Here is what the inside of the card looked like.


I used the little flowers on the bottom to decorate my envelope too.  

At our church we have a luncheon every quarter or so for new people to come hear about our church, our beliefs and answer any questions that they may have.  In September I will be taking over the luncheon and I am really excited.  For anyone who knows me, knows that I will have some type of way to include a SU project.   I have been busy working on the center pieces for the tables and they are really turning out cute.  When it is all finished I will post pictures so you can see what I have been working on.  I am using one of our new products from the Holiday Catalog!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!
