70th Birthday 2 for 1


This card is another tumble number one
This is for a gentlemen who has been like a dad 
since my own dad passed away 10 years ago 
If you could not guess he has just turned 70
I designed this on my Scan and cut 
Also as it's such a big and special birthday its an A4 size card 
I used two sheets of A4 one black and one blue
and cut the design on both colours
I then used a small scrap of red to cut the 70
I then place the blue bits inside the black card 
I think this technique is called paper piercing 
matted it onto a piece of red card and added the red 70
Finally adding it to the A3 card I had folded in half
As I don't like waste so I then put the black numbers 
On to the blue card so got 2 for 1
I now have another card ready to use
I just have to wait for someone else to turn 70!!


This card is for the following challenges





Thanks for looking
