A Special Birthday


We attended a party to celebrate a very special birthday for a very special friend recently.  I wanted to make a special card. I wanted it to be elegant and sophisticated.  His birthday was being celebrated with a really nice party.  It turned out to be an amazing evening with many magical moments.


I decided to stay with the black and white color scheme. Is there anything more classic?  The frame behind the 60 is layered shapes alternating black and white. The background and the 60 are dry embossed. I popped up the 60 with some double sided foam adhesive.  The pearls add an additional touch of class and elegance.  

I used my Xyron 5" Creative Station to apply adhesive to the frame layers and the Xyron X to apply adhesive to the word "years" and "celebrate". I created the tag to mount the word "celebrate" and topped it off with a May Arts Ribbon.
