hubby's birthday

tomorrow is my husbands birthday (better not announce how many years! hehe) and he is a classic car fan. We own a lovely silver '67 Notchback Mustang that he restored from scratch so I knew I just HAD to use the cool 'For a Classic' stamp set. I stamped the checker strip across the card and then stamped the 3 cars on scrap card, painted silver shimmer paint directly onto the cars (to resemble our car) and then cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals.
To create the background I stamped Versamark onto the Basic Black card and embossed the images with white embossing powder and heat set it. The checker strip on the left side is just white little squares placed on the black card to look like the racing flag. A few embellishments, some layering with Real Red and it was done.

My daughter cooked a cute cake made into a log and I found this cool knife to cut it with - it is made for cutting cakes! awesome eh! hehe We have a history of doing pressies and cake the night before the birthday when the birthday is on a weekday. Means you don't have to wait ALL day to get your 'goodies' as hubby goes to work even before the sparrows are awake!

oh yeah we watch Shortland Street too! hehe SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY Craig! hope you have a lovely day! xx


  1. Great card Julia and I'm sure it's a big hit with your DH. Now you've got 3 classics - the card, your DH and the car! LOL

  2. I love it when we can tailor a card specifically for the man in our life! You got this one spot on Julia. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your husband!
    PS: He shares the same day as my daughter!

  3. Happy Birthday to your DH! All the best people have birthdays this week!
