55th Masculine Birthday Card & Post #100!!

OK, let's get a card posted! My husband's uncle is 55 this weekend. I completely forgot to make a card, so I just whipped this one together this morning. I used the George cartridge on my Cricut to make the 55. Since it's a milestone birthday, I wanted the numbers to be HUGE and slightly obnoxious! I think I succeeded on the obnoxious part, don't you?? This card is BIG. It's 8.5" x 5.5", and I cut the numbers 5" tall! The striped paper is We R Memory Keepers, and the Happy Birthday stamp is Stampin' Up. I ticket punched the card front, and I added little dots of Stickles to the corners. I added two large eyelets to the sentiment with the Cropadile. That's it! Easy! I really struggle with masculine cards!


On another note . . . This is post #100! Woohoo! Cue the confetti and start the celebration! Thank you, thank you! I need to work on some craft fair projects this weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
