Today Is Your Day!

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend! My mom asked me to make a card for a friend's 70th birthday, and she wanted one in a style that I've made before.
For this card, I used my Gypsy to make the shape of the card, using Base Camp for the number cut-outs. I added a piece of clear plastic behind the numbers to adhere the center of the zero. The frame around the numbers is from Elegant Edges and I again used the Gypsy for the correct measurements. I adhered it with foam tape for some dimension. I used K Andrew's Positive Thoughts stamp for the sentiment.
When you pull the ribbon, the birthday note appears. There is space on the back for a handwritten note.
I also like to decorated the envelope to match the card.

Recipe:
  • K Andrew Positive Thoughts Stamp Set - click HERE to purchase your own set
  • My Mind's Eye - papers
  • Base Camp - numbers
  • Elegant Edges - frame around numbers
  • iRock - crystals
  • EK Success - flower border punch
  • Foam Tape - frame
  • Clear Plastic - from a cartridge shell
  • Hobby Lobby Ribbon
  • Brad - from my stash
I am entering the card in the Birthday Sundae Challenge #21

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great evening :)
