Male Birthday Card

Good morning from sunny Cyprus. There were some fab entries for 'Happily Ever After', which was last fortnights challenge at CD Sunday. I think Caz will have problems choosing a winner. On to this fortnight's theme which is a Male Birthday card, chosen by Wendy. I decided to make a card for a young man who is soon to be the grand old age of 7.

The basic card is cream hammered card stock. The CD I used for the background paper was from  Crafters Companion Halcyon Days. I used it on one half of  the card and wrapped it around the back.  The two decoupage toppers are from a pack of mini decoupage sheets by Le Suh. Again these have been in my stash for eons. I mounted them on to orange card stock. You can see on the bottom one that there's a small tag shape which I outlined with a peel off border. Why? Well I thought it would highlight it and I could add the young man's name here. I added letters from an alphabet sheet for Happy Birthday and four tiny green brads to the c
orners to finish. The decoupage images are very small and fiddly so you need a lot of crafty patience.

So why not pop over to CD Sunday and see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you. Remember to use something from a CD but it doesn't have to an image it could be just the background paper like I have done on this card. Have fun looking and joining in!!
