Last week my twin nephews celebrated their 6th birthday. Today I am sharing one of the cards I made. I asked my Sister-in-Law to tell me the boys' favorite colors and hobbies so I could personalize the cards to suit each of them. Ian's favorite colors are green and orange and he likes baseball. So I used this super cute Baseball Tear Bear file from Filekutz by LisaJane. There is some pen detail added to the baseball, the bear's face and his clothes. Green Stickles were added to the star on the uniform. At the top of the card, I added a pennant border with Ian's name, which I made from a birthday hat in LisaJane's Birthday Page Kit 1 file. I just turned the hats upside down and removed a few of the decorations. Instant pennant flags. More green Stickles were added to the letters and the tops of the pennants. And what is a birthday without a treat, right? So I added a cupcake for the birthday bear (I mean boy . . . LOL). The cupcake is also from a FileKutz file (Birthday Mesh). Lots of Stickles (red, orange, and icicle) were added to the cupcake as well. I like a lot of sparkle but I didn't want to add too much bling since this is for a 6-year-old boy. :-) I am very happy with the end result. What do you think?
Thanks for taking a look at my project today!
