So, I am blogging for the 3rd time tonight. If you read two posts down, I had made a birthday card for my son who turns 11 tomorrow. I was pretty happy with the card until I showed my DH. He looked at me in a very strange way and said: "and how old is he going to be tomorrow?" I guess that meant the card was too babyish. So off to my craft room again. After the day I've had I really didn't want to try to do anything but I guess he was right. The card is more for a baby or younger child. So, since I do love making these z fold cards, I thought this one up real quick. Litterally took me 10 minutes from start to finish. Austyn is a real airplane buff. We have an airshow every 3 years in our town and since we live right across from the airport we have front row seats, so to say. I purchased the Stand and Salute cart especially for his scrapbook pages. I used the cart and cut the jet at 4 1/2 inches. The jets are in 3s but I used the hide contour feature in DS and only cut 1 out. I then cut it again for the inside of the card. I used some metalic paper I had in blue and adhered that to the panels. I stamped the "Happy Birthday" in silver pigment ink and it really sparkles. I cut the 11 out in a silver metalic paper from Base Camp and viola. An awesome 11 years old birthday card. Right? Well, it better be because it's almost my bedtime and I am not going to be making anymore cards tonight... ENJOY
As always, have a great day and god bless.
