Happy 80th Birthday

This is a 8" x 8" card i have made for Bryan's (my better half) Dad from his Mom for his 80th Birthday, which isn't till the 15th, but he won't see this on here.  I made it by matt and layering some gold mirror card, some gorgeous card from 'Graphic 45' and Papermania Capsule card.  Scanned in the photos of John and printed them out, matt and layered on to gold mirror and cream card, curling the sides slightly of the mirror card before placing it on to the cream card, this just gives it an almost padded look, just extra dimension.  Printed off the sentiment and done the same way as the pics.  I simply then embellished using Nellie's Die corners and the swirls are from 'Memory Box'.

This one, also for John, is using a gorgeous topper and card pack by 'HunkyDory', goes without saying the quality is brilliant too.  I made the sentiment by simply cutting a spare piece of the card that came with the pack, matt and layered onto Gold mirror card and added gold '80' peel off.  The embellishment is, again, a 'Memory Box' Die, and I just added some faux gold studs.
