90th Birthday

I needed to make a 90th birthday card for a friend.  Do you know how difficult it is to find 90th birthday cards in the store?  I'm sure glad I make my own.   I had an idea for one and decided that the fancy fold challenge at Sentimenetal Sundays was just what I needed to make this card come to life.

This is a "swing" card.  There are a number of tutorials on the internet to show you how to make them.  I cut it out of burgundy cardstock and then covered portions of it with paper from a Cloud 9 specialty stack.  The XC (which is 90 in Roman numerals for those of you who didn't know) is cut from George and Basic Shapes.  This is what it looks like when it swings.
I think she is going to be really surprised when she gets it. 


  1. Love the swing card! Have not seen this before! Perfect fancy fold card! Thank You so much for joining us at Sentimental Sundays this week!

  2. I've not seen this pattern before. So lovely... I'm sure your friend will love this!

  3. What a wonderful idea for a nintyith card. I don't know about America but in England a card for anything over 70 is almost impossible to find. Apart from that, some people don't actually want their age advertised,as I found when I recently put a 70 on my friends card. Oops ;0) so this is quite a crafty way of doing it!
