60th Birthday Card - 60 is the new 40!


I made this card using my Funky Hand CD's. The papers are so gorgeous. The brown part of the card is embossed with the cuttlebug numbers embossing folder, which unfortunately doesn't show up at all in the photo, but looks pretty good in real life. The numbers were cut from the Alphalicious cartridge at 2 1/2", and the sentiment is a home made rub-on.

I really like the green to the pink & brown to brighten it up. I just got that embossing folder & thought it would be great with b-day cards (and it definitely is on yours!)

Just lovely!

My dad just turned 60, which you left a very nice comment on my site for the card I did for him (thank you!).

How do you make home made rub ons???

I like the way you think, Enfys. I don't feel a day over 30 myself.

Your Cricut MB friend, JacqueC!
