which one would you choose?

Been meaning to share this post for a while. A bit ago I was asked to make two cards for guys' 60th birthdays. One for a winemaker I actually know. The other for someone I don't know - except my friend said he's with the police and likes meat! Um. OK.

Should you have any questions to supplies, just ask.

Winemaker was easy.

Grateful for wine labels I got from Jacqueline years ago, I put one to use and carried on the gold theme with grapes and various collage elements.

As for the other guy, I was pretty clueless. So I searched the internet for milestone card ideas. Made several so she could have a choice. Which one do you think she chose? Which would you choose?

I kinda carried on the wine feel for this one.

And then gave a gatefold card a la Jennifer M. a try. Great way to stretch your cover plate dies too!

Next up, gave another cover plate die a shot. With kinda police colors ;)

And then I grabbed an alcohol-inked BG from my stash and turned it into a more playful card.

How about a deluge of confetti to celebrate?

Then there's the party props to support the giant "60".

And finally, the only "meat" stamps I owned...

So which one did my friend choose? Yep, the hot dogs! Though I'm happy to report she bought the blue geometric cover plate version and the alcohol-inked one too ;) Do you have a favorite?

Hope your Thanksgiving is/was wonderful. We celebrated last Sunday and I must admit I'm happy the preparations are over, though I'm still eating leftovers ;)

Well done, Maria - you seem to have covered all the bases! My favorite is the gorgeous gate-fold one!

It's a low-key Thanksgiving here, compared to past years, but we're spending it with my 95-year old Mom and my sister. The turkey is in the oven, and it smells heavenly already!

Wow Maria, that's an absolute feast of cards to select from. And yes I guessed it would be the hot dog card, although my absolute favourite is the alcohol ink one. Shame I'm well past that milestone! Great to see one of these cards linked up at AAA Birthday, hope you'll come back and join in with the new challenge that starts on Monday.

Great collaging around the Corbieres label, Maria ... and delicious touches of gold! What a fantastic selection your friend had to choose from ... they're all fabulous ... I'm rather loving the minimalist, graphic ones ... cover plate, AI background, confetti and banner ... yum! Hugs, Anita :)
