65th Male Birthday Card

Hello, here's a card I was asked to make recently for a 65 year old male
 who had no particular hobbies. I played it safe and used just the numbers of 
his birthday as the focal image of the card.

I first attached the blue patterned paper to card, stamped both numbers,
carefully cut them, then edged each number with black Promarker as I had used white card!
I attached the square of co-ordinating paper to a piece of dark blue card, which I had first punched each corner using a photo corner punch, so the paper could be easily slotted in.
I then used 3D foam pads to attach the numbers, die cut the banner,
added a peel off sentiment and some punched circles of paper across each corner.

Items I have used are:-
Papermania large number stamps, 
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Ribbon Banners
EK Success Corner Adorner punch - Photo corner

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Crafty Gals Corner - Anything Goes
Cardz 4 Guyz - Numbers
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Birthday
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking in.

  7. A very definite male card - well done! I like the two matching blue papers - and that you covered the large numbers with one of them. The photo corners are a really nice element - and the punched small circles are perfect "bling"! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments for our Birthday Sentiment challenge!
