Today’s “unstoppable” card is for a dear friend (since 4th grade) who is going to start a whole new professional life in a new state – all at the age of 60.  I’m so proud of her!  The Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Mount stamp is a “go to” for celebrating the strength and achievements of both women and men.

Use a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, envelope liner die (Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies) and the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to create a liner.  Adhere to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Envelope. 

Zip a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Call Me Clover card stock through the Big Shot inside the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This creates a pretty (reminds me of crocodile) protective cover for the ribbon and embellishments on the card.
