I made this card for my brother, Tyler's 9th birthday. I used Recollections A2 card base. The paper is actually a photo mat that I cut down to fit the card from Creative Memories Discover Rock Grunge Additions Collection as are the 2 stickers. The collection may be discontinued since it was made in 2009 and the lady that gave me the Creative Memories goodies is no longer a Creative Memories Consultant. She brought what she had left to me and another friend at church to let us choose what we wanted! Sweet, right? I chose the rock paper, because I introduced him to Newsboys/Jesus Freak- originally a DCTalk song but they split and are in 3 different groups- on his 4th birthday. He loved it and played an air guitar in the car when he heard the song!
Okay, I felt like Lisa, she knows who she is, when I made the inside! The marks should give her away if you follow her blog! LOL! I love you, Lisa! I used Stampin' Up Remembering Your Birthday, which is actually part of a stamp- "friends and fun and presents too! Happy Birthday", but I covered the friends and fun and presents too! part of the stamp with a piece of paper before stamping it on the card. Here's where I felt like Lisa, I stamped the sentiment/happy birthday vertical inside the card instead of horizontal! So, I added a piece of The Paper Company Assorted Cardstock Citrus Color Sheets 8.5" x 11" that I trimmed down to fit the card and then the second time I stamped it, I used a napkin and part of the friends and fun, yada yada, stamped on the paper. I was able to peel up the paper and try one more time! Third times a charm and it worked! I used Versa Fine Onyx Black pigment ink to stamp with. Luckily, Elmer's Craft Bond Permanent Tape Runner is not too permanent and didn't tear my card! I included a $15 Toys R Us gift card in his card since I wasn't able to see him this year for his birthday. He's moved to CT with his mom, my stepmom. My dad, sister, and I aren't happy about that since she decided to move with no notice until she had already made the decision. My dad is going to get a lawyer to file for joint custody of Tyler. He and my stepmom split last November, over a year ago now and I would appreciate any prayers anyone is willing to give up for my dad. TFL and have a great weekend!
