Child's Birthday Card

Since I have eight grandchildren, I was happy to see the challenge at Stamps R Us to make cards for "Kids." My grandkids are finally old enough to appreciate such things. I used the sketch at the Cards & Things challenge #105 and some papers from the "Cupcake" collection from Basic Grey as my inspiration. I did the dry embossing for Sentimental Sunday's Challenge #87. I wish more embossing folders would fit a 5 x 7 card, but since most of them aren't, the easy solution is to mat them and put them on the larger card, leaving a wider border. That's why I modified the sketch below.



I had to use green brads for the grandson whose favorite color is green, like the Hulk! Thank you ladies for the simple inspiration!

5: x 6.5" card:
Paper - Basic Grey "Cupcake" (yellow, red, bright pattern); Close To My Heart (outdoor denim, White Daisy), Bazzil other blue mat
Stamps - both CTMH - Fanfare Workshop stamp set, "Happy Birthday
Ink - CTMH Brown Bag, Holiday Red, Outdoor Denim
Other - Cuttlebug embossing folder, CTMH brads, Martha Stewart border punch
