Sneak Peek: Get To The Point {milestone birthdays}

Isn't it fun to celebrate milestone birthdays? At least when it is not your own! This year, Todd turns 40! FINALLY! And his cousin, Robin turns 50! I made a few milestone birthday cards for the occasions!

Kraft seems to be very fun for a masculine card. This one uses a kraft base with a little red and black accents. I stamped the arrow with the PTI white pigment ink, then while it was still wet, ran it through some ultra fine glitter, which grabs onto the ink. Finish it with some hairspray to coat it and keep those blingers on there! I used the 40 from the set with versamark ink on the bottom....a strip of poppy cardstock, pierced along the top and bottom. A simple black button and some black PTI gingham ribbon ...boom! One milestone card done....
skip a decade and this beauty seems to work well. I used some of PTI designer paper in spring rain on the white base, then ruffled some white sheer polkadot ribbon on the bottom of the card, added a double button with some rustic twine to hold them together. "The Big" are from the sentiment set and the "50" and the brackets are from the main set. Such a simple card, hope Robin likes it!

Are you getting tired of the sneak peeks - I swear that I could keep going like the energizer bunny with this set -the possibilities are ENDLESS! Tomorrow, thank you notes and love notes!
