Vintage 1982

My husband's birthday is on Sunday, May 15th. Now my birthday is four months prior to his which was super cool when I turned 18 and 21 before him. Then pretty much after that it all went down hill!

He likes to tease me for weeks even months before and after my birthday that I am old.

Well, he married a crafter so his birthday gift box and matching card this year are that of an old style black and white tv (one he had as a kid, old man).

I found this 3D file of an older tv in the Silhouette Store while brainstorming on what I could do for him. It just clicked in my head right away.


You know you are old when you used to have a B&W tv, no remote, and foil on the antennas (what is written inside the card)!


 Vintage, genuine original parts, and limited edition are all true facts!


One thing my husband has taught me is to let go a little in life. So when I am able to do so with my crafting, I love to do so!
