Happy Birthday, Super Boy!

One of my grandsons is celebrating his 12th birthday today! Over the years he was enamored with superheroes and action figures. He's also an amazing artist and took a class at Nelson Atkins Gallery of Art in cartooning. His favorite subject was, of course, superheroes, with a humerous twist. So naturally, here's the card I made for him using the CTMH Super Boy stamp set and Thin Cuts.
I want him to know that we think he's amazing and so very loved!


The red striped paper from Stargazer was perfect for this theme. I stamped the lightning background behind the boy and the extra zap and pow words using the stamp set Comic Book Scenes. You can barely see it, but I used that set to stamp stars at the top of the inside to go with the birthday sentiment from PTI. The image and words were colored with Copics. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a very old CTMH stamp set, Nursery Bash. I chose it because of the similar font style.


Thank you for visiting!
