My boss (well, he was my boss up until a couple of weeks ago) turns 50 soon and he and I have a standing joke each year about who is the oldest, because he is only 3 weeks older than me. I decided I couldn't let his 50th go by without a card to
I went for a chalkboard look for the background, using a NBUS stamp from Hero Arts called Chalk Background. Check out the cool effect of this stamp:
The DSP strips in the background are from the old Night & Day Specialty DSP which I hoard! The polka dot piece is actually printed acetate which I've adhered to a piece of white cardstock so it stands out a bit more.
I cut the "50" from Hello Honey cardstock and adhered it using dimensional adhesive onto a circle stamped with the Dictionary stamp in Fog ink before being cut with a circle die.
Thanks for visiting. Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team. They'll amaze you, as always!
