Card Recognition

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

make a wish, Mr. 4 year old


My little man is 4 today, where does the time go?  I have things to do for his birthday party, so I'l be brief.  I've used Lucy's Cards Day #1 sketch, the Make It Monday selective impression technique and the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.  And just a note, that it's rare that I make a card with no stamping...





And because many of you know that the other little one is crafty, here's Ben's birthday card for his brother.  

Materials: PTI By the Numbers die and impression plate, PTI Mat Stack 4 die, PTI Double sided banner die, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist pattered paper, Coredinations green card stock, PTI soft stone card stock, vellum, SRM sticker

I think your card is great, but Ben's card is my favorite of the day! What is that they say about show business? Never work against kids or dogs!

Such a fun way to celebrate your son's birthday. The brightly patterned number is great against the textures of the all white card. I love his brother's creation too! How fun to share your hobby with your boys! Happy birthday to him!
