Male 65th Birthday Card

 Hello blog viewers
Today I am showing you a card I made for a friend who wanted a card for their Dads 65th birthday.

The shirt was made by using a template I bought from Sharons Cards. I used some striped paper for the tie and to trim the top of the pocket.  I had some shirt buttons which I stitched with black cotton and then glued to the shirt cuffs and one just under the bottom of the tie. I had a black and silver brad so I used this on the tie so it would look like a tie pin.  I put the 65 on the pocket using peel offs.

The beer glass and bottles of beer were from a magazine 'Making Cards for men'.  

 When you open up the card you find a verse

And then you open the other side and you find........Newcastle United football club emblem, as you may guess, my friends Dad is a football fan. 

I liked making this card, as I do find it hard to make male cards.  Hope you like it.

  1. Great idea Sally to do several layers for the card. Each side is different but works well together. xx Janice xx
