Masculine Milestone Birthday

We'll have to celebrate this special milestone birthday someday in the future when the pandemic eases up. If I had to be stuck in self-isolation with anyone I'm thankful it's Stan. Easygoing, hard-working, never complains.

Masculine cards can pose a challenge. Thought this one should be in bold colors, black, white, and silver. That shimmery silver Bazzill looks grey in the photo. At first I cut the "celebrate" in black, but thought it was too strong, taking away from the focal "70". The silver balances the card. 

The center circle is stacked 5 thick, only the top circle is black. I would normally have die cut the numbers, but I didn't have access to those dies and the set I wanted was sold out. Purchased a set of number stamps and white heat embossed on the black circle.

Stamps: Recollections Number clear stamps
Dies: Birch Press Design Sun Ray Triangle Layer set, MFT Happy Birthday Circle,     MFT Celebrate, Elizabeth Craft Designs Dashing Circle

Happy Mother's Day to all moms, and all of our moms in heaven.

Stay safe, and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Stunning card. Love the cards and is a great male card. TFS

  2. Happy (belated) 70th to Stan. This is an incredible card, Sheryl! I feel the same about my isolation buddy - couldn't think of another person on earth I'd rather spend this time with. Much love to you and Stan! ♥


Comments brighten my day, thank you!
