Happy Birthday Tyler!


 I made this birthday card for my little brother's 6th birthday that is coming up in November. I know he likes Despicable Me, so I used this freebie from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons (http://prettypaperprettyribbons.blogspot.com/) and am entering this card in Through the Purple Haze Challenges (http://throughthepurplehazechallenges.blogspot.com/) that ends very soon. Our inspiration had to be a song, book, film, or cartoon. I know Tyler loves Despicable Me so I had to make him a card with this file! I also used DCWV All About Boys Stack as the background of the card, the blue is from Best Occasions 8 ounce Scrap Pack that I bought from Walmart a few yrs back, the Happy Birthday stamp is Skipping Stones Design (SSD) You Know You're Getting Older Collection (which is no longer in existence), the balloons/star are Recollections Dimensional Stickers, and ther letters are Simple Stories Happy Day Expressions Cardstock Stickers thanks to Housecalls by: Scrapping Madge formerly Heartstring Designs (http://heartstringdesigns.com/), from the August Life of the Party Kit and the card base is DCWV Greens Card Stack. He loves balloons and had a balloon dog like the balloon I used in the card when he came to my house a few months ago.
 This is the top inside spread. The turtle, tree, and monkey are Sticko Funky Monkey and the ladybug on the leaf is Sticko Lady Bugs. My dad used to call me and my sister monkeys when we were little so I had to put a monkey sticker on his card to carry on the tradition! :)
This is the bottom inside spread of the card. The cake is also SSD You Know You're Getting Older Collection and the 6 that I used as a candle is also from Housecalls by: Scrappin Madge but is from the September Collection Hello Gorgeous Take 2 Accent Stickers by Monte Paper Mill (http://www.montepapermill.com). I colored the cake with American Crafts Candy Shoppe and Basics Pens and EK SUCCESS Zig Memory System Azure 0.5mm Ball pen. He's gonna love this card! TFL and have a great weekend! :)

I love it! We are watching Despicable Me right now!! What kind of cutter do you have?

Amanda said...

I have an XACTO 12x12 Paper Trimmer. I'm kinda anal with my cutting & try to keep a steady hand, but it usually doesn't turn out that way! Just shows I'm not perfect no matter how hard I try! :)
