Happy 80th

Our neighbor is turning 80 next week and we wanted a special card
for him.  He used to sail so my husband and I decided on a sailboat
for the focus. Rectangle die cuts and birthday greeting are poped
up on dimensionals.

Hope you are having a creative weekend!

I used stamps and dies from several companies:
Sailboat:Simply Defined
 Seagulls: Repeat Impressions
Clouds:Great Impressions
Sentiment: Taylored Expressions Simple Sentiments
Stitched Rectangle Dies: Stampin Up
Stitched Borders Die: Lawn Fawn
Patterned paper: fabscraps

A wonderful, timeless scene.

In general I think anything nautical is perfect for those grown up men, but for a previous sailor it couldn’t be more spot on than this. I love the design!
