This Saturday sees the 100th Birthday of my Grandad on my Mum’s side of the family, so the pressure has been on to make a suitable card with enough wow factor to match the amazing age that he will have reached. I mean …. 100 !!!
The Pop up Box card did the rounds a lot last year, but I still feel that it has that certain surprise element to its interactive nature when it pops up as you pull it out of the envelope.
Then I used various Star Framelits and punches with different shades of Glimmer Paper to give it that all important sparkle.
Never have I had to make a card for someone that’s entered into treble figures. He’ll have seen and experienced so many changes over the years … I mean, just think of how mobile phones have changed … Vinyl to CD to Downloads … the difference between now and when he was my age, must be astonishing.
Lets hope he’ll like it … along with his telegram from the Queen. A big day to be celebrated.
