A Special 70th!

I had to create a special 70th Birthday Card recently and this is what I came up with - a masculine trifold card.  

I used the Hero Arts Digital Kit - Sillyscape - printed it numerous times, cut it out, coloured sections, layered it, stamped 70 (digit stamps by Papermania) over one print out, cut out the numbers and coloured them to make the numbers "pop".  I adhered these to the base with foam squares - I forgot to take a side view of it before it was handed over!  The little hedgehog (hedgehopper) in the plane is by Penny Black and I coloured, fussy cut and added glossy accents to the hearts and goggles!.
The world is part of a digital stamp By LORi Designs - the little plane and boat are by PTI.  I coloured with copics and added the dotted line with white gel pen.
 Then the full "skyline" was revealed when the card was completely opened.
 I printed the message directly onto the clouds background (Hero Arts Digital kit!).
I layered some of the buildings for dimension and added glossy accents to the clock face.  I erased the message on the inside for privacy reasons (hope you understand).

Come and Get it - More than one fold
Here Come the Boys - Birthdays Only
Pile it On - Anything but a Christmas Card
Simon Says Stamp and Show - A project with heart

Thanks for peeking.  Sorry I have been absent from blogland - hope to rectify that over the coming weeks.  Thanks so much for stopping by today - I really appreciate all your comments.

Supplies:  A6 Card blank - Anita's, Embossing Folder - Papermania, 
Sentiment - Waltzingmouse Stamps, Black Tuxedo ink - Memento, 
Wooden snowflake - Trimcraft UK, kraft cardstock - Bazzill Basics, 
pop dots and roller adhesive - Tombow.

This week's challenge on Paperplay is "Snowflakes".

I embossed white cardstock, put it on pop dots and layered it for added dimension.  There are wooden shapes all over the crafting world at the moment and I have lots of favourites!  I found these in a local craft store and decided they would be perfect for this Challenge.
