70th Birthday card using "Mocha Morning" DSP

Hello lovely blog friends! How are you doing today? I hope you're well...
I have been very busy this last week, I held an all day workshop at my home on Saturday where the lovely ladies made a card organiser (pictures to follow), I held a Valentine card class on Monday night and I held my monthly card class on Tuesday... I shall share with you the pictures in the next day or so, once I have uploaded them to my computer!

One of my wonderful friends very kindly asked me to make a special birthday card for his Dad, who is turning 70 this month, and they were travelling from the UK all the way back home to Tasmania to hand deliver the card as a huge birthday surprise! Who was I to refuse such a wonderful surprise, so I got to work and this is what I created.....

I used the gorgeous Stampin Up Designer Series Paper called "Mocha Morning"... and if you have this set of 12x12" papers you'll know what I mean when I say they are very "touchy feely" textures that you just have to stroke!! well, you do!

I used Very Vanilla card stock, and decorated the inside of the card using Early Espresso ink, and the sentiment is from the stamp set called "Create a cupcake" (Spring Mini Catalogue p22), and the image of the car is from the stamp set called "Need for Speed" (Main catalogue p47). It's a great Masculine set... and I have used mine lots already!

I accented the front of the card with Stampin Up's Crystal Effects" (p114) to add dimension to the numbers. And the Birthday sentiment is from the Hostess set called "Happiest Birthday wishes" (Main Catalogue p8). I stamped the envelope using the same stamp set.

I can now say that my work has gone "global"... it's a lovely feeling and so rewarding!! Feel free to leave me a comment, I'd love to know what you think about this card.

Thank you for stopping by today, hope to see you again next time!
Luv Lynne
