72nd Birthday Card


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with Kraft card and then spotty card. I have printed the wording. I die cut the "E" with a circle die from a nesting set from The Works and mounted it onto a kraft card circle cut with the next size in the nesting set.  I die cut the wording with Sue Wilson banner dies and then mounted them onto kraft card banners. I die cut the age elements with Tonic dies. I assembled all the elements onto my card.
