Edwin Birthday Card

Good Morning and thank you again for stopping by.

I had a busy night, but was able to finish a birthday card for my nephew. He is not the type of guy who likes fancy stuff. Therefore, I tried to make the card as simple and clean as possible yet wanted to personalized a bit. Here is the card:

For the embellishments, I used a package of Jolee's again for his hat, cupcake. The present he was holding was originally three levels gifts, but I choose the bigger one and trim the edge a bit to adjust it's size to fit it into his hands.

I also found the perfect vellum quote just for him. He loves to sleep in, so this would just be so wonderful. LOL! Because there are quite a few family members going to sign this card, so once again, I've prepared a bigger blank page for signing. To make this signing space, I've cut a piece of cardstock measuring 9" x 4". With the long side across the cutter, from left score them 3 inches & 6 inches again. Just folder each side toward the middle.

Thanks again for come by for a visit! Hugs~

Hi Cabio,

Great card! You are a whiz at altering the stamps to fit what you need and making those larger to sign places!!! .......and I LOVE those jeans - they look like the real thing. Would you consider posting your colours?

Hugs, Candy
