A Very Special Masculine Birthday Card That Stands Out!

 Hello friends! 

Today is a very special day as my hubby Dr. John reaching a milestone birthday! I would normally have a small and intimate birthday party. Due to the Covid lock-down in our province, we are no allowed to have any social gathering. Bummer, I know.


With that in mind, I tried to make every little detail around the birthday extra special. Of course, what kind of card should I create for him? Here it is!

Based on what Dr. John's likes and preference, I picked out the theme and created this personalized card. Dr. John love the color blue (stamped in shades of blue)  and Star War, Star Trek... (Warp Speed Stencil). He also love clean, simple and modern design (hence, Modern Greetings Stamp Set).
 
60
 
Because it is a milestone birthday, I wanted to commemorate the number and make it stand out. In fact, I can't quite pin-point exactly where to insert the number. The only way is make it "suspended". I took out acetate and cut two strips and double-taped at the bottom with hearts. 
 
60 -001

What do you think? Hope this also gives you an extra idea on masculine cards. If you like to wish Dr. John a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, please feel free to have a comment. Thanks for stopping by!
