Milestone Birthdays!

Don't you just love these photo stamps??!! I have several now, but this is my latest & I thought it would be great for a couple of milestone birthday cards I made for 2 of the ladies who come to my club, who were having special birthdays. Jane's celebrating 60 years & Aviva's celebrating 50 years!

I thought the wording (I won't tell if you won't) was pretty apt for these birthdays & it gave me the idea of hiding something - so I came up with this:

The front flap lifts up to reveal the age! To create the blank background, I simply masked the area with a cut-down post-it note when I rollered the rest of the card. I stamped inside the card using the Happy Everything Stampin' Up! stamp set:

I made the 2 cards at the same time, which really speeded things up & the only difference was the age stamped under the flap.
