My grandfather turned 80 a few days ago and I made him a card. It took me a while to get the card finished, it’s not very easy to make a card that looks elegant and classy but that was the feeling I was looking for. And I just had to use gold somehow. I found a sixty years old card of him (I also have a similar on my grandmother) that I like very much, it’s elegant and I think he looks like a movie star from the 50′s or something. I decided to use it in the card with some golden details.
He liked it a lot and commented the handwriting, this time I actually wrote it myself and it took some training to get it to look decent but I’m very happy with the result!
I used embossing on the text and the frame around the picture and some glitter glue dots in the corners.
