Of course I had to make a card. Lee loves to play Golf and I bought a golf stamp set called Tee Time, a few years back to make cards for him and never used it until now. I went onto Splitcoaststampers.com to get some ideas of what I wanted to make. I searched for golf cards and 70th birthday cards and found a card posted by rdm, that I had to make. I get a little ornery sometimes and this was one of them. This is not a normal card, it is an according card, about 5 feet long. Here are the pictures.
Here the card is with the custom box to hold it.http://www.mixed-up.com/mary/morestuff/50-Candled_Card_Construction658.jpg
Miss Hailey came home from School Friday and found me in the stamp room working on the card. She asked me what I was doing, I showed her the card, which was about 1/2 way done and she asked me how many candles I was putting on the card. I said 70. Hailey asked why? I told her that it was my friend Lee's 70th birthday and she exclaimed "He's going to be a Zombie soon."
Lee loved the card. He came over and thanked me for the card and gave me a big hug. I told him next year I'm just going to bring him a candle and he can start putting them on the back side.
Of course I had to tell him about the conversation I had with Miss Hailey. I think Lee loved the story as much as the card.
I made a second card in-case I liked it better. Here are the pictures of it.
It is an easel card and I can change the flag if I want to.
I used the same paper pack but changed the Sky cardstock to Topiary. The Buzz and Bumble paper pack is one of my favorite because of the vintage look.
I hope this inspires you to make one of either of the cards and if you do, please leave me a comment and a link to your card so I can see it.
