Another "Oldometer" card...

My son-in-law recently celebrated a milestone birthday, and this is the card I made for him:

It's very hard to photograph this card because of the silver metallic cardstock. The best picture I could get was taken at a bit of an angle, where the reflection wasn't too bad.

I used some basic dies to cut the apertures for my numbers (they were also die-cut) and the word "Oldometer." The decorative strip across the bottom was a self-adhesive border that I have had in my stash for years. It's about time I used it!

This is the inside of my card. The sentiment was computer-generated. This card is a repeat of one I had made for my nephew a year or so ago. It's a great guy card, since most men can relate to the car theme, and they get a kick out of the inside sentiment.

We had two of my son-in-law's brothers and his grown daughter staying with us last weekend. They were here as a surprise to help him celebrate. It was a fun time, and I'm so glad we live close and could celebrate with him, too.

We're looking forward to some spring-like weather this weekend. We still have about 4" of snow on the ground, but they are predicting that a lot of it will melt in the coming days. Good riddance, is all I can say!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Your card is so clever. You are really good at coming up with fun and pun cards.

I love the way you did the oldometer card, Cheryl! I'm bookmarking this idea! I'm sure he loved it and it sounds like a fun party time was had by all for this milestone occasion! You don't look 50 yourself, so it's hard to imagine that you have a 50 yo SIL! BTW, I really loved your 90 yo BD in your last post! Very clever!! Hugs, Darnell

That's such a fun card and great idea to flip the age like that. Glad to hear you had a good party time with your family x

Oh what a fun masculine card and not really too hard either. I bet he loved it. Family time is the best time, so happy you could celebrate. Our snow is all gone, hubby saw his first robin yesterday and we have bluebirds living in their house. Spring is ready to spring. LOL
