Number of Years Traveler Masculine Birthday Card

HAPPY EASTER to you all
I hope you have a wonderful Family Weekend
Tomorrow we are having a big Easter Egg Hunt with our Grandchildren, It;s great fun as our garden is large, with lots of places to hide those chocolate eggs !

Anyway, the card I am sharing with you today, is a card I made for my Brother-in-Laws 50th Birthday
Since he is a train driver, I decided that the Traveler Stamp Set from Stampin Up! just had to be the main stamp set for this card.
However, I also used the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set, for the sentiment inside the card, plus the Number of Years  Stamp Set. for the large numbers and the Sentiment Banner.

The Large Letters Dies and the Number of Years Stamp Set is available as a Bundle in the 2016 Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue from stampin Up, and is available via my online store, at a 15% discount
