50th Birthday Card

I found this neat tutorial on SCS for a recessed window card, or shadow box style card…and gave it a go.  This card is for a dear friend of ours who turns 50 on Friday…He and his family are about the most wonderful people you could meet.  I really love this style of card, next time I make one I will make the window deeper I think.  The supplies are all CTMH except the number stickers. I used the Game On paper pack. Sentiment stamps are CTMH as is that birthday cake. I originally had the whole cake black..but the number 50 didn’t show up well…so I restamped the center of the cake in bamboo and added it. There is some faux stitching around the outside. Here is a link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdFpXaor-ts&feature=related

 

Well, have a wonderful evening and as always..enjoy!

Love the card. I made one probably last year or earlier this year and decided if I made another one I would score the top twice with a 1/4 inch seem so it would fold flat. I am still in the Christmas mode, but I know I need to get into the other seasons and reasons for cards.
