I received a request last week to create a Happy 100th Birthday card. And of course I said certainly!
I’ve held on to a wonderful stamp set (and dies) since they came out in the 2016 Occasions catalog called Number of Years. It’s always been my go-to stamp set for special birthdays and anniversaries.Product List
Most unfortunately, this morning I couldn’t put my hands on the dies so ……… I “had to” fussy cut the ‘1-0-0’ images. I think I did OK but it certainly wasn’t as easy as using a die and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine!
I “stamped off” each stamp for the image inside the card so there would be a softer look and not be too bright and bold.

TIPS & MEASUREMENTS for Prepping this Card
- Card Base: Basic White THICK card stock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
- Next Layer: Berry Burst: 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
- Next layer: Basic White card stock: 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
- “100”: Bubble Bath card stock scraps
- “th”: Basic White card stock scrap for ‘th’ and the little ‘flag’ for enclosing the TH
You can morph this card into an anniversary card or, for fun, a 30th Birthday celebration [again]. And my intent is not to tease you with a retired stamp set that isn’t available but rather to show you a fun and simple layout that you can duplicate with other flowers and numbers, albeit not numbers that are this large.
