50th Birthday

A friend turned 50 this year, so had to come up with a 50th birthday card for her!  Made the 50 with my Cricut and made an easel card so that after you open it the 50 can stay popped up.  For the Happy Birthday, it needed to be raised so that the top part of the card would have a brace so that it could stand up.  This was made with Shrink Plastic!  I stamped a rather large Happy Birthday directly onto a piece of white Shrink Plastic.  Made sure it was dry and then heated it up and had fun watching it shrink- it is always fun to watch that!  Then I just taped to inside of card and I had my thick brace.  Worked out perfect and I know that she had a great time on her special day!
