Hello! I thought I'd pop in tonight and share what always turns out to be my favourite card of the year - Jackson's birthday card! We had a fabulous weekend with his grandparents flying in, and a Mickey party to celebrate. I can't believe this little dude is two!
The current Recipe Swap at Catered Crop is Manly Men!
Father's Day isn't until September here in NZ, so I'm focusing on the card for my little man!
Looking through my substanial paper stash, I relised just how little paper I had featuring primary colors - this is an old Pink Paislee collection, Hometown Summer.
I printed a giant "2" on paper (Font is Minnie, size was 300pt) and used it as a template to cut black and red cardstock. I added punched circle ears and some sponging. The sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches. I embellished with some glittery stars cut with Verve's Starry Die.
Here's a peek inside the card...
Shanan and I like to write letters to Jackson each year, so his birthday cards always feature a pocket. I added more stars and some stitched detail.
I'll be sure to share lots of party photos just as soon as I finish downloading all the photos! Till then, I hope you'll join us at Catered Crop!
