Happy Birthday

Hi there,

It’s my nephew’s birthday today.  To make his card, I have used some of his favourite things, his favourite book character is Dog Man, and his favourite colour is green.

Cardstock:  White, dark green
Dies: Sue Wilson: Frames and Tags, Sophia
Noble Collection, Double Stitched Octagon
Other: Foam tape, glue, double-sided tape, online image

I started this card by finding a Dog Man image online, saving it into a word document, then adding the birthday sentiment.  Once printed, I cut the the image out with the #3 die from the Sophia set.

Using the #1 die from the Sophia set, I cut a piece of white cardstock, then using dies #1 and #2 I cut out a piece of dark green cardstock.  I adhered these pieces with glue, and then adhered the image with double sided tape.

To create the card base, I folded a piece of A4 white cardstock in half.  Using the #6 die from the Double Stitched Octagon set, I cut an octagon card base, positioning the top of the die above the fold.  I then cut a piece of dark green cardstock using the same die, and adhered this to the card base with double sided tape.

Using the #7 and #9 dies from the Double Stitched Octagon set, I cut a frame from white cardstock, and then repeated this using the #10 and #12 dies from the same set.  I adhered these to the card base with glue.

To finish the card off, I attached the image topper with foam tape.

Happy birthday Bobby, I hope you have had a wonderful day xxx.

Bye for now,
