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!!!
