diy: happy 19 or 61 birthday card

My dad’s birthday is today and since I can’t go home to celebrate, I sent him a fun birthday card so he feels loved and special! What better way to make him think he’s a young man! You see, my dad is turning 61 but more often than not, he still acts like a kid (in a good way)! In fact, he’s addicted to Fruit Ninja on our Kinect system and can be found playing tennis every Saturday and Sunday!

The fun part of this card is that the number circle card spins. I embossed the numbers on top of the yellow cardstock, poked a small hole in the center of the black cardstock, inserted a mini brad through the hole, and taped the two circles together to conceal the brad. Happy 19 dad! ;)
