Grandma 90th

Hi everyone,

My mother is turning 90 later this month, so I am busy making a few special birthday cards for myself and my daughters to give to her on her special day.

 As you can see I have created another Shutter card varying the Shutter die so that I had a full solid panel for the front of the card where I could put the numbers 9 & 0 for 90!

To achieve this look, all I did was cut an additional piece of card that was the height of the card and the width to where all the score lines lined up. I covered the front and back with card. The only other thing I had to do was score the top and bottom rectangle panel in half so it was a square like the one at the end and fold as per above. 

This is the front of the card when the card is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

Stamps: Birthday Wish - Stampendous
Paper: White; Green; Pink; Time To Celebrate Special Occasion; Best Wishes & Time to Celebrate DP - Graphic 45
Dies: Shutter Card - Tattered Lace; Décor N More 0; Décor N More 9 - MFT Stamps; Grandma - Cottage Cutz
Other: Black Ink; Clear Glitter Wink of Stella Pen; Silver Heart Embellishments; Foam Tape

I have a wonderful little friend who turns 90 soon. This is a lovely card to celebrate the event. Thank you for the inspiration...you always have lots of that to offer. What a great idea changing up the front to accommodate the 90.
