My Favorite Blue Card
My favorite blue card is one that I did for my parents on their 70th Wedding Anniversary. Before I show you this blue card, you are probably wondering why I have combined a post about a blue card and Frank Sinatra.
If Frank Sinatra was alive, he would have been 100 years old on December 12th. So together my favorite blue card and Frank Sinatra have something in common. One of Frank’s nicknames (he had many) was Ol’ Blue Eyes. He became popular in the 40’s and 50’s with his own brand of music. He is best known for songs such as “Love and Marriage”, ” My Way”, “Strangers in the Night”. He was also known for his acting in movies. He started acting in the 40’s and in the 50’s he starred in “From Here to Eternity”.
My parents, who married in 1945, listened to Frank Sinatra’s music and watched his movies. To celebrate a 70th Wedding Anniversary is a milestone, so they deserved an “all out over the top” card.

The pop-up feature inside the card is so easy to create. The Stampin’ Trimmer makes it easy to do the cutting for the cake layers because of the measurements on the the ruler and the fact that you will be cutting your card stock from point A to point B.

I enjoyed creating this blue card for my parent’s anniversary as much as they enjoyed listening and watching Frank Sinatra.
