Happy Happy Birthday to You!


I made this card late Saturday night for my stepdad. We celebrated his birthday yesterday even though it is today since Dustin, Haylee, and Emily couldn't be here today. They're off at college and work. I made this in my room on my bed, because I didn't want my stepdad to walk by the computer room and see me making it. I could have closed the door, but didn't want to. It didn't take me long to make this card it was just the planning process that always takes me the longest- what paper am I gonna use and how do I want it to look! I didn't really have any masculine birthday paper so I just decided to make it simple! I used my August Kit of the Month that I won from Heartstring Designs (http://heartstringdesigns.blogspot.com/)- the mat on the front is Echo Park Paper Birthday Wishes by Glitz, the "Happy Happy Birthday to You is Simple Stories Happy Day Designer Cardstock Flash Cards Item #1509 & is attached to the card with Recollecions Foam Squares, the twine & bling is from my stash, and the mat on the inside is Simple Stories Happy Day 6x6 paper pad. The card is DCWV Card Stack Greens. I used a Craft Smart glue stick to adhere the mat on both the front and inside of the cover since I ran out of photo mount squares. It's not the best glue stick, but it will work for now. I hope to find another job soon so I can have money to spend on scrapbooking supplies and other things that I miss doing. The foam squares help, but I don't want everything projecting out from the card! I may have to start making cards from 12x12 sheets until I can afford to buy more supplies. TFL and I hope you all have a good week!
