This card was so much fun!!! A friend of my husbands called and asked if I could make a special card for his step father who was turning 80. He said it was so hard to find a special card that said Happy 80th. I asked him a few key questions and immediately got to work. He said that his step father worked for Coca Cola for several years and that he would really like to see Happy 80th Birthday on the card. From the information I was given… here is the card I designed.
I used the Stampin Up Countryside Stamp Set and water colored it with my Aqua painter and Water Wonder Crayons. I found a picture of Coca Cola Bottle Caps online and took a photo of them. I then uploaded them to My Digital Studio and began to layer them. Once I finished I printed the layered bottle caps… cut them out and put them in the bed of my Countryside truck! Oh… I love it!!!
The colors I used are Basic Black, Real Red and Marina Mist. I used the Big Shot and the Medium Sizzlits Dies #115951 to punch out a perfect 80. I punched it out of Marina Mist Card Stock. I used a two way glue pen and some dazzling diamonds glitter to added bling!!!

I am a fellow demo and have really been enjoying checking out your site and videos. You do a great job. You have mentioned a few cards that you have designed for specific individuals, how much do you charge for something like that?
Wonderful idea and execution of it. Love the bottle caps in the truck bed. Terrific.
That is so cool, Brandy! Love it! You did an awesome job with that!
