Stampin’ Up! has this adorable tin box that has a stamp set, punch, two Ink Cubes (Grapefruit Grove & Night Of Navy) and a thin clear block inside. The box is gorgeous and it all looks like this:
This card was super easy to make. I first stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink and then cut it out using the Darling Label Punch. Then I punched out a piece of Basic Black cardstock using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Then I punched out piece of Golf Foil cardstock using the Starburst Punch. The black and gold Designer Series Paper is from Broadway Bound. I just layered a strip of 1/4″ Basic Black cardstock over the top. I thought this would make a great masculine card or you could give it to someone with a big birthday!
Speaking of big birthdays, I don’t think I ever told you about what my lovely friends did on my 40th birthday. We had this habit of making “memories” on each other’s birthdays. I’ll tell you about that more later.
Rob and I decided to go to a local restaurant that night. It was just a sandwich/burger place. All of a sudden there seemed to be a commotion going on. The customers and staff were all laughing and carrying on. I looked up and saw a group of people, all dressed in black robes coming towards us. They looked like a bunch of hooded Grim Reapers with scythes and staffs. There was this one poor elderly woman who became very afraid and one of my friends had to tell her it was just a joke. It was quite a site! It even startled me at first until I figured out what was going on. It is something I will never forget!
This card would have been perfect for that birthday!

Love the card, and the story about your 40th birthday! Your friends certainly made it memorable for you! 🙂
Susan, this is a brilliant card, literally. That gold and black are wonderful together. Luckily, this probably won’t frighten little old ladies.
