Birthday Card for Paul

My friend Paul had a birthday this week, so I sneaked into the craft room for a couple of hours.
I  SHOULD be grading, and honestly, have done for the past three says straight.
That said, I am not really feeling guilty, LOL.

He is a punster, so I added the IRONY stamp. Since he is also a master wood craftsman, I added the marquis mechanism for fun. It had the desired effect. Would do a couple of things differently, but am pleased, overall.
I used the scalloped circles  and  A2 filigree Delight dies from spellbinders.On the inside I used Labels 1 for the marquis reveal
Irony Stamp is from Impression Obsession
I also used as the sentiments from "Word to the Rescue" 
The Happy Birthday is from JustRite Stamps with their old mounting system. A similar stamp can be found, but I love their old perfect alignment sets.


  1. Beautiful card Nancy. He will be thrilled. I love making those peek-a-bo cards. Made a couple for my grandbabies for Halloween. They loved them.

  2. Wow! Look at all the special effects!!!!!!! I can tell you put your heart and soul into this card!!!!!!
