Early Happy Birthday Son


I have been so busy with school activities that I almost forgot about this months SFYTT.  That being said, I decided to use it to make my son's birthday card. His birthday isn't until August, but I figured I would get it done early so I have it on hand.

Another piece of my Costco DP pack was the starting point of this card.  Pulled the colours from there and used my Label 4 Nesties in lieu of the circle.  I crimped the focal panel for some texture -- it's not striped like it looks in the picture!  Have absolutely no idea how that happened?

I just noticed I messed up on the numbers....there is a definite grain texture to the blue paper I used and one number has it one going horizontally and the other number has it going vertically - ugh!  Thankfully, my typical little boy won't notice this in the least - at least I hope not LOL!

Thanks for visiting today!

What a super fun birthday card, Marisa! The colors are absolutely fantastic...so kid/boy appopriate and the star and ribbon are perfect! And if your son is anything like mine (he's 13) he can't find a sock that is sitting on the floor right in front of him, so I don't think he's going to notice the shift in pattern on the 11. I'm just sayin'...

How very cool for a boy! Love those big numbers. I think you have a ghost in your craft room adding stripes and messing with your numbers.EEK! Just the same, the card is fab.

I love the colors, the layout and the numbers with the grain going different ways! After all, 11 year old boys go in different directions from one minute to the next!

*I* didn't even notice the different grains on the numbers, 'till I read your description. It doesn't matter, you're only human, and a wonderful one at that!
