100 Years

The first card I am showing you in 2017 I made for the the 100th birthday of the father of my sister-in-law! That is quite the milestone! I wonder if any of us will live that long...

Stamps: Stampin' Up (splatters)
Dies: Memory box (sentiment and numbers)
Other: Tim Holtz textured hammer, punch

Since he knows German I used this die from Memory Box that says something like "Best Wishes". The numbers are cut from a scrap of gold and then distressed with this textured hammer from Tim Holtz (not sure if it is still available). The green background I had in my stash. I layered everything on a gold panel and attached it to a 5x7 card that I stamped lightly with golden splatters.

  9. Une autre carte fabuleuse Suzanne et très masculine avec ce combo de couleurs ! Je suis sûre que le papa de ta belle-soeur a apprécié ta délicate attention !
    L'autre jour chez le boucher, il y avait devant moi un monsieur qui venait de faire ses petites courses et il blaguait même avec la vendeuse, quelle surprise d'entendre qu'il était lui aussi dans sa centième année ! Franchement je veux bien aller jusqu'à cet age si c'est comme lui !
    Á bientôt !
