50 and Fabulous

Today's card is one I made for the last The Cat's Pajamas release in March. I did share it at the release party but totally forgot to blog here.Better late than never I guess.

I needed a masculine card for one of those major birthdays, in this case, the big 5-0. I started out by stamping the numbers with Memento Luxe ink using the Your Number is Up set. I then cut out the matching number using the Numbers Plate and then superimposed them over the stamped numbers with dimensional dots, offsetting them so the shadow part of the images would show through. I cut the double ended banner using a piece from the Framed Up 2 Cutups and then stamped the sentiment on it also from the Your Number is Up set using Stampin' Up Raspberry Ripple ink. All the patterned paper came from the Carta Bella Winter Fun pad including the solid colors. I kept the embellishments simple for a more masculine look using silver mini brads to anchor the patterned paper panel and then adding a trio of matted enamel dots.
