Male 60th Birthday Card

Made this card for a dear male friend’s 60th birthday. J

Started w/ a card base using the Cupcake from the Cricut cartridge, Something to Celebrate.  Made it into a shaped card and made it as girly girly as I could.  LOL

I was being a li’l discreet about his age, in having the “60” in small numbers, next to the heart.  Looking at it, he prob. thought I mistakenly made this for someone else --- a girl!!! LOL

Then when he opens it up, I get down to the nitty gritty.  LOL  ---- him being over the hill and a buzzard.  LOL  


I’m sure he’ll get a huge kick out of it.  J

Tools/Items:-
Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridges  – see below
Cricut Cartridges – see below
Cardstock – white (for the Imagine)
Patterned paper (Over the Hill background)
Glue – ATG; Zig Two-Way
Stickles – Yellow (candle wicks)
Stamp -- swirls

Flower sticker
Pop dots

Best Friends – background & branch
Blossom – cupcake and layers
