December is a big month for my family… its my birthday, now my daughter’s birthday, Christmas, and my son’s birthday. This year my son turned 2 and even though he wouldn’t really notice the card in the sea of wrapping paper and family – I still wanted to make him a fun little card. So this is what I came up with:
I didn’t have a cutesy stamp set that screamed “kid’s birthday” to me, so I pulled out my new Patterned Party set and started playing around. I stamped the numbers image first using the Pacific Point ink and then stamped a second time on a piece of scrap only this time coloring in the number 2 with Real Red and Daffodil Delight markers to give it some “pop”. Then I cut it out and glued it over the blue image.
After it was all put together, it felt like it was missing something so I dug through my stash of ribbon and ran across some Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon and decided to play with adding it above the numbers. I thought it looked like icing…which I thought was fun for a birthday card.
I also added some Dazzling Details glitter glue to the flame on the number 2, but it is really hard to tell from the pictures.
In the end, while he was more caught up in the excitement of unwrapping I was still happy I took the time to make the card. And while it may seem silly; I’m totally putting it in his scrapbook!
