I have been making a special birthday card this week for my father-in-law using the versatile Number of Years stamp set and the co-ordinating Large Numbers framelit dies. He is 96 tomorrow and looking fantastic.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3⅝” by 3” and die cut the 96 from the centre of the panel. I added the die cut numbers to my stash as I planned to use the negative image for the card. I took the panel and stamped the ‘happy’ above the die cut aperture and the ‘birthday’ below the die cut using Tranquil Tide ink. Both words came from the Number of Years stamp set.

I took a Thick Whisper White card base and added a piece of Delightful Daisy dsp 4⅛” by 2¾” to the front using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

I added the die cut piece on top of the dsp using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the ‘th’ in Tranquil Tide cardstock using Tranquil Tide ink, flagged the end using scissors and added it to the card front using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. To finish off I added some of the Silver Metallic Enamel Shapes.

I really liked the simplicity of this card. Hope my father in law likes it.
