60th birthday card - sixty years wise with 60 candles
A fun yet elegant 60th birthday card featuring 60 candles and the words “years wise” hand lettered.
For the loved one who is turning sixty! Not 60 years old, but 60 years wise. With all the candles handily in sets of five, making it easy peasy to count them all and make sure they’re there.
Counting candles in fives is easy peasy.
When you reach the age of 60, it might not be wise to light all 60 candles on your cake. These ones have been lit for you though, and they are easy to count, as they are in sets of 5. Counting candles in fives is easy peasy.
Inspired to find the perfect card for my own dad’s 60th birthday, I came up with this idea of being “years wise” rather than “years old” because while my dad is technically sixty, he doesn’t strike me as old. But he is wise, and this has come from his years spent growing in wisdom. I decided to design a birthday card for my father, and came up with this x because at this point, who wants to count that many candles one by one?!
It went down well, so I decided to print a bunch more in case others also wanted a light hearted card with a deeper message of appreciation for their wisdom. So this is a birthday card for that wise old someone with a touch of humour to celebrate someone with this milestone birthday coming up.
The sixty candles are a lovely blue colour and the writing that says “years wise” is a deep sage green so it is perfect for birthday girls and birthday boys (probably should be men and women by this age though, no?)
Ideal Christian birthday card for a sixtieth birthday
Ideal for a Christian friend or family member who has grown wiser as the years have gone on - the Bible says that “wisdom belongs to the aged” (Job 12:12) and that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7) so give this to a sixty year old who has been following Jesus and growing in wisdom and love for Jesus as time has gone on.
