70th Birthday Card

Today, I am sharing a 70th birthday card I made recently for a friend.
These Cut and Emboss folders from Hobbycraft cut and emboss beautifully.
 I was lucky enough to buy three of them in their Christmas sale.

I raised the embossed panel with 3D foam to lift it from the sentiment.
Although you can't see it very well in the photo, I used chalks to
highlight the embossing.

Lux Craft Cut and Emboss 6" x 6" Folder - Champagne Celebration
Digistamp Boutique - Milestone Birthdays
Pebbles Inc - Pearlescent Chalks
