90 years old!

Got a call from my mom today asking for a special card for a friend of her's that is turning 90!  I was meeting her in an hour and still had to shower so I am thankful that I was able to pull of this card with plenty of time.  Got the love the stamps with matching dies.  Sure hope her friend enjoys the card.

The 90th is really straight in real life--it is on clear strips of transparency and they were wobbling around when I snapped the picture.  I used my sizzix to make the card--making it fit the Blogger's Challenge for this week (use die cuts or an electronic die cutting machine)--90th is cut twice and one is attached on each side of the transparency strips (1/4 by 3 strips of transparency).  Such a simple and sweet way to add a bit of EXTRA fun to a card.  I didn't think to get a picture of how it was inserted in the center.  But I have an extra piece of Soft Suede--5 1/2 by 3.  With the 3 inch side at the top of your score board, you would score from top to bottom at 1, 1 1/2, 2, 1 1/2 and 3 inch marks.  Then just fold back and forth to form a center section to hold the strips of transparency with the letters/numbers on it.   The one inch pieces are put under the vanilla inserts.  The other 1/2 inch section are holding the transparency and pop up parts--if it is requested I can make another one with a tutorial. 

Stamps: Apothecary Art, Loving Thoughts, Paillon Potpourri
Paper: Soft Suede, Tea for Two DP, Calypso Coral
Ink: Soft Suede
Other: markers, Crochet Trim,  small butterfly punch, framelits, MDS, sizzlet alphabet (non SU)

Have a great weekend.
