Mary is 108!!

Good morning friends!

I have a special card to share today - one I made for Seniors Secret Service for Mary - who is turning 108!!! Isn't that amazing?  I made a nice big 6" square card, since it is being hand delivered by volunteers.

The green pattern paper has gold foiled bits in it, so I added some more gold with a gold marker - on each of the letters for her name, and on the green piece that was cut with the Agatha Edges. The green card stock used is beautiful, heavy weight and pearlized.

Of course I had to make it a Pop Up card, using Karen Burniston's Pop it Up dies! And yes, I used the Lorna Label for the base. I know I use that die a lot, but it makes such a perfect Pop Up for decorating.

I added the new Transparent Double Sided Tape that Elizabeth Craft Designs is carrying, to a strip of white card stock and die cut the script Happy Birthday from the Happy Birthday Pop Up. With the thinner liner, it cuts SO easy - and adhering the words to the green shadow was then easy peasy.

Since Seniors Secret Service makes sure that isolated Seniors are recognized on their birthdays, I know Mary will appreciate knowing she was thought of on her special day. This will likely be the only card she receives and I wanted it to be one that would make her smile. It's such an honour to be asked to create these milestone birthday cards.

Happy 108th Birthday Mary!!
