50th Birthday with Large Number Framelits

IMG_7180Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made for my hubby’s a 50th birthday. I was working with a masculine “black” themed card and I came up with this.

I used a Basic Black card base and added a layer of Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack (retired). Next I layered another piece of Basic Black cardstock which I embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and the Hardwood Background stamp (#133746, p.125 AC). I used a Circle Framelit (#141705, p.193 AC) to cut out the opening in the Black layer. Then I added the numbers that were cut with the Large Number Framelits (#140622, p.193 AC) from Black Glimmer Paper (retired). I added the banner with the sentiment from the coordinating stamp set, Number of Years (#140653, p.136 AC).

IMG_7183The inside of the card has a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock and an additional piece of the Going Places DSP. I used the circle, that I removed from the front of the card, as another layer on the inside (no waste that way). Then I layered a smaller circle on top with the sentiment from an old retired stamp set, Smarty Pants. I love this stamp set for just the right person….and this was one of those times!

I also LOVE the Large Number Framelits for birthday cards! You just can’t beat a personalized card and the numbers make that really simple to do. Don’t forget to use numbers for your next birthday card….it will be a hit! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
