Happy 80th Birthday

One of Hubby's uncles recently celebrated his 80th Birthday. So, a special card was required but had to be made with minimum effort and time!

The base card is 8 x 8, much larger than anything I normally make, but since I had bought a pack of ten some time ago, I thought it high time I tried to use them. You know what, I was really pleased with the way it turned out, and the large area made the most of this gorgeous K&Co vellum from the beautiful Flora and Fauna Speciality Paper Stack.

The aperture is cut using Nesties labels 21. The sentiment was printed on my computer and matted onto dark green card before layering it onto a pale green marbled paper. 4 green pearl brads finished it off and secured the vellum to the card.

I've been working on another book using the fabby Once Upon  A Springtime from Graphic 45 and it is nearly finished, so I'll post some piccies over the next few days. In the meantime I have 2 Father's Day cards to make, so I had better get on with it!

Happy crafting
