Happy (906) Day – by Deb Saaranen

Happy Sunday, everyone!

“September 6 is 906 Day, a celebration of America’s greatest area code. No area code in America is so unique in its defined borders. Additionally, no area code is as tightly tied to its demonym as area code 906. For Yoopers, 906 has become a unique symbol identifying the Upper Peninsula and its islands, where the area code is exclusive to the region.” – Bugsy Sailor (UP Supply Co.)

If you’ve ever been to area code (906), it is a place that will always be very near and dear to your heart.

Deb created this card in honor of (906) Day using our Upper Peninsula of Michigan (Yooper) stamp and die sets.

This card is done in a smaller slimline style measuring 3.75 x 7″.

Deb die cut the UP several times, gluing together to lend the bulk, resembling chipboard once done, topping with  the fun fall print.

The fall papers Deb used are from the Gracious paper collection by Authentique.

If you love The Yoop, you’ll have more fun than you ever imagined with these sets!

Thanks so much, Deb!
