7" Vinyl Birthday Card

I made this card for a friend/former colleague who is fanatical about AC/DC and is celebrating his 50th birthday this year.

I looked on ebay for the 7" vinyl single "For Those About To Rock, We Salute You" and was fortunate to get two for £1.99 + £2 postage which I thought was a bit of a bargain.  For this use, it didn't matter what the condition of it was, I just really wanted the look and the label to be ok.

For the background I used a background grunge stamp by Viva Decor.  I had planned to type and create a special sentiment for the middle, but my printed decided to run out of one colour of ink and refused to print in black only, so I then resulted to stamping a sentiment.  For this I used Papertrey Ink "Stylish Sentiment" stamp, and used a Spellbinder die from their "A2 Matting Basics" set.On the inside on the left hand side I have stuck the paper sleeve for the 7" vinyl single.

This card has turned out totally different from the one that I had in my head, all the same, I like the look of it and I'm sure my friend will be happy with it too.

It struck me that this style of card could be used for other events, like special wedding anniversaries where the record could be the first dance song.
