Happy Birthday Carter!!

Hello everyone - today we are going to wish my nephew, Carter, a very happy birthday.   Carter will be celebrating his fourth birthday tomorrow and I thought I would share with you the birthday card I made for him. 

Here is Carter looking adorable in his Detriot Tiger hat and jersey!

I used three Silhouette Cameo cut files to create this fun little boy card - the great castle cut, the knight, and of course that little green dragon inside the card. 

I cut the base castle card at 6 x 4.5 inches, using five colors of cardstock - two grey tones for the castle, black for the gate, red for the turret points and inner shield, and blue for the outer shield.  I finished the castle with black doodles and dots.

The knight was cut in three colors of cardstock - dark grey, medium grey, red and sparkle silver paper.

The dragon has a case of chicken pox - or at least he has a case of the dots!  I used a scrap of fun green paper to cut the dragon and then I attached him to the inside left cover card.

The inside left of the card is stamped with the same stamp set I used to stamp the castle front, Close to My Heart's Card Chatter - Birthday.  This is a great stamp set because it comes with several different birthday phrases that can be mixed and matched and retails for $17.95.   While you are checking out this great stamp set at my on-line store, take a few minutes to look at the May National Scrapbook Month Special - Dotty for You!!  With a $35.00 order (and the Birthday Chatter stamp set will put you half way to that total) you can add Dotty for You to your cart during checkout for $5.00!!!

Here is one last look at Carter's card.  I suspect I may not be on my brother's happy list when Carter opens his birthday gifts from Uncle Doug and I.  In addition to a fun ride on toy, I got him a big super-soaker water gun to play with this summer!!!!
