Big - Oh's

My oldest son will be 30 this week, and my brother-in-law is turning 50.  This is for them.

I used the sketch from Addicted to Stamps and More blog.  I wasn't sure if I wanted the numbers to be inside the box, or pop out of the box.  So I made one of each. What do you think?

Product information:
Papers - black and white: Stampin Up; color: Heidi Grace
Number dies: Paper Trey Ink
I inked the edges of the numbers with a bit of red ink.  You can't really tell from the pix, but the numbers have a bit of glitter on them.

This was very fast and easy to do - which I love right now.  I am also submitting this t0 52 card pick up at the Old Back Porch

Hope you are enjoying a great fall weekend.
Thanks for looking.

  6. Hi there, thank you so much for joining us this week at ATS&M with these two fabulous cards, I love both of them but the second one takes the lead by a tiny weeny bit. This was a great take on the sketch and love the dynamism of this. Enjoy your celebrations


  7. I thing both versions are good with the numbers either way.

  8. Neat birthday cards! Love the use of numbers and the way you showcased with the cutouts. Bet the recipients of each card were just delighted. TFS

  9. Fabulous birthday cards - looks like real metal!

  10. Great idea and can't decide which I like the best, so that means that they are great both ways ! x
