Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Milestone Moments Stamp Set found on page 27 in the Occasions catalog. This year there are several milestone birthdays for some of my friends and family. I made this card for my “older” sister who is turning 60 soon.
I combined the wording from Memorable Moments with the Large Numbers Framelits. I like the way the banner “wraps” the numbers and stands out…just what I wanted. My sister and I celebrated many birthdays together growing up as our birthdays are just 2 days apart. We live over 400 miles apart now but still talk on the phone everyday…sometimes several times a day! 🙂 Here’s a photo of us as kids and my favorite photo of us on her wedding day.
This card was fun and easy to make! I chose this color combination because they’re her colors. I used Night of Navy cardstock for my card base. The Whisper White layer measures just 1/8″ smaller, 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I embossed this layer with the Confetti Embossing Folder and sponged it with Night of Navy, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and cut the banner and numbers out using the Large Numbers Framelits. I attached the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the embossed and sponged envelope to match!
Stamp Sets: Milestone Moments, Letters for You (banner) Inks: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight Papers: Night of Navy, Whisper White Tools & Accessories: Large Numbers Framelits, Confetti Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Stampin’ Dimensionals
The Milestone Moments Stamp Set can be used for birthdays, anniversary, retirement, or new baby. I really like the different fonts!
Here’s a few more ideas using this stamp set.
I am determined this year to get my birthday cards sent out on time. I made a perpetual birthday calendar and am getting my birthday cards made and filed in my card tin.
