Happy Birthday, Adam!!

Hello Stampers! See this card? Well, it was a work of love for my son, who was born only a short 21 years ago. This card reflects him very well to me. He was never one of the kids who loved saggy pants, or anything in that look. He has always liked to look nice and I have really loved that about him. This card was so much fun but took me a few days to figure out and get right. The new stamp set, Guy Greetings, was lots of fun but I couldn’t get all of the stamp sets that I wanted on the card. Looks like I will be using it again then!!

I decided that an easel card was a good display card for a guy turning 21, so I cut my Sahara Sand textured cardstock (unfortunately retired but still loved!) to make a 5″x5″ card (cut 5″x10″ and score at 5″ and 2 1/2″). The card front is a 5″ square. I used DSP from Adventure Bound DSP Pack. The “shirt” was made by overlapping two pieces of DSP, adding buttons down the front. The collar are punched from the Petite Pennant Punch and then a bow with the Bow Builder Punch. EZ! The pocket was made from scraps. The shoes are popped up with dimensionals and hold the card up. The balloons were all stamped on the Sahara Sand cardstock and I love how they all look distressed because of the texture in the cardstock.

So, I hope you want to see the inside!
