Flipping Fifty Birthday Card


Hello Zutter Fans!  Cheryl Boglioli here with a fun quick and easy birthday card.  I have a dear friend turning 50 this week.  Many of us hate those big numbers and as we age, we realize we still don’t feel like the numbers represented. 
I thought creating a flip chart with numbers was a fun and clever use of some Zutter O-Wires.
I stamped Just Rite Numbers on black cardstock squares with Versamark and embossed them with ClearSnap Mix’d Media Inx in Jasmine. 

Of course I needed to add some distressing to this Flipping Fifty birthday card, so I used the Distrezz-It-All to distrezz the edges of the flip cards as well as the embossed card front.

My flip cards are 1.5” x 2”.  The 1.5” width was the perfect fit for 3 punched holes.  I lined the cards up between the halfway mark and the inner ridge mark as you see above and punched each flip card.
I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to glue down my O-wire to the card front embossed layer and covered with ribbon. I then carefully pinched the O-wires only partially closed with my hands.   Now they can be changed to be any age she wants.  0-9 on each side are included!  I’ll have to make her another when she turns 100!

Here is a better close of the card front put together with the extra embellishments.
And here is the inside of the card!  I printed this on my printer and cut out the label using my Spellbinders Label 8. 
O-Wires can be used for more than binding albums.  What is something original you’ve done with your O-wires.  Share here and on the Bind-It-All Facebook page so that we can see.

Love this--so funny and cute--so if they flip the numbers, what can they change them to?

All the numbers 0-9 are on both sides. So, it could go from 00 all the way to 99. I think she is claiming 29 for the week. LOL
