40th Birthday Invites

I am in major mass production mode here...Christmas, Engagement & now 40th Birthday invites! Yikes!!! I'm not going to be around much this week, at least not until I get all of these cards assembled and delivered. I did want to drop in quickly though and share this card.

I'm making these invites for a coworker of my husband's. She asked for something with a race car theme...hmm, in the stamping world, I had a hard time finding something appropriate for a grown man. So, I used some of the other info she supplied me with...the colors of his race car, strips & tire tread. I was SO excited when I discovered that one of the Fair Isle Backgrounds kind of look like tire tread, do you see it?

I am off to my stamp room, wish me luck! I think I'm going to need it :)

This is brilliant. I had to do a 40th birthday card for a man back in May and really struggled. Something like this would have been perfect.

These are so nice. Love that color with the black and white. It's tough doing mass production. My daughter has a small business and I just finished all her Holiday cards and two little gifts for each of her clients (and their dogs). Like you , I'll be glad to get back to regular card making. Enjoy your evening.
