Happy 40th Birthday

Every cardmaker should own Stampin' Up's Memorable Moments Stamp Set.  I use it at least twice a month, but probably more than that. Between milestone birthdays and annivesaries, you will get your money's worth and then some.  Add to  that the fact that it is compatible with the Framelits Labels Collection, and you've got a winner, all the way around.

My son turns 40 years old today!  I don't know where the time has gone...  Of course I wanted to make him a special card, but you can't get all fancy with a masculine card.  I have CASEd the card on page 138 of the SU catalog before, and always with a little twist.  So I CASEd again.

Here it is using Soft Suede and Very Vanilla card stock and Comfort Cafe DSP.  Inks are Soft Suede and Midnight Muse.   Besides the Memorable Moments, I also used the From My Heart Collection.  I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce the card front and the inside as well.  The sentiment on the front of the card, a James Taylor quote (just love it!) was cut out with the Framelits Apothecary Accents.

More Comfort Cafe on the inside along with more piercing 


  1. Hi do not look like the mother of a 40 year old. :) I love all the detail work in your card and those colors are great! As James TayIor would say "just love it!" :) I am a new demo at SU and found your blog while setting up my DBWS. This is all so new to me and a little daunting as I am in the process of updating my blog to reflect that I am with SU. Looking forward to creating fun friendships through this great hobby. Happy day to you! :)

  2. Love the card! I have both stamp sets and you just gave me an idea. Thanks and have a wonderful day.

  3. Diane, I love this card! My son will be 40 in November and what a perfect card to make for him! He will be sooo impressed!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
