As promised, here is the birthday card I made for my other nephew. Ian's favorite colors are green and orange and he likes baseball. So I used this super cute Baseball Tear Bear file from Filekutz by LisaJane. There is some pen detail added to the baseball, the bear's face and his clothes. Green Stickles were added to the star on the uniform. At the top of the card, I added a pennant border with Ian's name, which I made from a birthday hat in LisaJane's Birthday Page Kit 1 file. I just turned the hats upside down and removed a few of the decorations. Instant pennant flags. More green Stickles were added to the letters and the tops of the pennants. And what is a birthday without a treat, right? So I added a cupcake for the birthday bear (I mean boy . . . LOL). The cupcake is also from a FileKutz file (Birthday Mesh). Lots of Stickles (red, orange, and icicle) were added to the cupcake as well. I like a lot of sparkle but I didn't want to add too much bling since this is for a 6-year-old boy. :-) I am very happy with the end result. What do you think?
Just to let you know, I will be announcing some BLOG CANDY later this week so be sure to check back in.
I am also entering this card into the Made It Myself Mondays challenge at You Had Me at Craft.
