Happy Birthday for Yesterday !

It was my DH's birthday yesterday but I didn't want to post a pic of the card I made for him on here until after he'd received it, wouldn't want to spoil the surprise !

 
 
For my design I decided to use a new set of Stampin'Up! stamps I acquired recently.  It was a free gift with an order of a certain amount as part of their 'Saleabrations' event.  I think the images in the set are perfect for male cards.
 
I stamped all the images using Memento Rich Cocoa ink then fussy cut them all out.  The background was created using a strip of SU! Crumb Cake cardstock with a strip of vintage looking Washi Tape attached across the centre.  I added two thin strips of gold mirror card top and bottom of the Crumbcake layer. 
 
My Dad is staying with me for a few weeks (a lovely treat !) he's also a cardmaker and helped me with the card by making the lovely rosette from a piece of paper from my stash.  I cut the numbers out using a set of dies by Memory Box - I love these alphabet dies as they are a great size for cardmaking and scrapbooking, cut crisply and the cardstock doesn't get stuck inside the dies.  

The sentiment is from the same stamp set cut out using a die from a set by Spellbinders. 

Thanks for checking out today's project, I really appreciate evelyone taking the time to check my work, I have great fun creating my projects and to have so many lovely visitors and comments is just
the 'Cherry on the Top'.

There is nothing like a freebie and in my beloved "Rich Cocoa" too -perfect. Huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mr T.
Hope you are having a lovely time with your Dad, crafting together must be a complete dream. When I was a kid I'd always go into my Dad's shed and knock a few nails into some wood -I adored it. I think I was the son my Dad never had ;) Wonderful memories that I now treasure dearly.
Hugs, Katie xx
