Happy Birthday, Leslie Neilsen

As soon as the radio guy said his name, I started laughing. When he said the actor was 83 today, the other radio guy said, “Surely you’re kidding,” and you know how the rest went. This is a gag that never fails to get my family laughing like fools. Even my mother, in advanced stages of Alzheimer’s Disease, may smile if we work this in.

OK, so this is not a birthday card.  I could have used the Texturz plates on the Olive panel, but I wanted something with a smaller design, so I used the criss-cross crimping technique used on this card.


Stamps:  Trendy Trees, Sweet Little Sentiments (masked)

Ink:  Close to Cocoa, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive (marker for thumping), Chocolate Chip

Paper:  Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla

Other:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, Crimper, Wide Oval Punch, 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (Old Olive), Stampin’ Dimensionals
