Special Birthday

Jillian Selwood Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

It was my Dad's 80th Birthday last month and we had quite a few celebrations for him to mark this milestone.

I wanted to make a card that was just a little bit special and something he hadn't seen before so after looking on You Tube for inspiration I finally found the perfect card to make. Many thanks to my wonderful friend Sacha van de Kerkhof for the fabulous tutorial which you can find here

The thing I really love about the card is that fact that it looks quite plain and understated on the front.

But when you open it up it really has the wow factor.

Not quite sure why but my Dad likes frogs! Apologies I forgot to photograph the card before I wrote it so I had to smudge my writing.

The card looks really complicated but was relatively easy to put together. Because of the thickness of the card I needed to make a special envelope for it, see photo below. I also made boxes for the two presents I bought Dad and decorated them in the same way.
