.... it's time to share my second card with our super CR84FN61 colours of aqua, tan and cream. I decided to use these colours to make a birthday card for Ian, my uncle. Ian likes to be the joker in the family so I made the sentiment the main feature of his card. I wouldn't want to make his age the focus :)
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Heirloom Patterns, Vintage Labels 18; Art Gone Wild - Words to the Rescue: Birthday
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake; Memento - Rich Cocoa; Versamark
Spellbinders: Labels 18 (S4-310) #5, Splendid Circles (S4-354) #3
Accessories: Stampin' Up! - Very Vanilla Card; Card from stash; Clear embossing powder
Naturally, there is a punch line to this sentiment
This was a super easy card to make. I found this lovely aqua card ready made in my stash - and there were two cards, so one was used to make the label topper. I stamped the vintage label in Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder to give a tone-on-tone finish, then die cut it with the largest Labels 18 die. I used the last of my Very Vanilla card to make the mat layers and the sentiment label. The backing pattern was made using the pinstripe stamp from Heirloom Patterns - it's really easy to line up and perfect for a guy card. I finished off with this fun sentiment which was stamped in Rich Cocoa - it really made me smile!!! It's in the post, so should arrive in plenty of time for Ian's birthday!! I know it's wicked, but such fun!!
Edited to add: Strictly the sentiment should be that the Earth is 4.5 Billion years old - but whatever :)) Sorry, I had to come back and add that - the science geek in me couldn't let it slide :)))))

Yesterday was just gorgeous - brilliant blue skies, bright sunshine and hot, hot, hot! It seems that summer is going to go out with a bang! Hopefully it will be just as nice today - I might even go to the pool! Have a super day. See you soon.
