My father-in-law’s 75th birthday was yesterday. He and my mother-in-law are in vacation in New Zealand this week. They left us their itinerary, so I thought it would be really fun to send a card and have it waiting for my father-in-law when he got to the hotel on his birthday. Luckily, I thought of this two weeks in advance, so I was actually able to get the card there in time! From the email I got, he was pretty surprised to receive a birthday card in New Zealand!
This card is based on Cindy’s fabulous card from the Stampin’ Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop. I needed to make it completely flat though, so it would go through the mail over seas with no problems.
