MCT Birthday Bash Blog Hop: Flying By to Say...

by Veronica

*noisemaker*

Welcome, welcome to the My Creative Time Birthday Bash Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating our fearless leader's 42nd birthday with fun birthday-themed projects, a giveaway and a fabulous SALE!!! More on that in a bit...

If you've hopped here from Tracy's blog then you're headed in the right direction. If not, mosey on over to the Birthday Girl's blog to start from the beginning!

Our youngest nephew, Mason, is turning ONE this month! He's growing so big - so fast! To celebrate, I made him this sweet little 4.25" square card.


The sentiment (Fly Away With Me Stamp Set) is originally 'straight' - no curve at all. But with My Creative Time's fabulous photopolymer stamps, you can wiggle them all around to fit your card! I really love the way it follows the tail of the kite (Fly Away With Me Sentiments).

After coloring the tail flags of the kite with my Copics, I re-stamped the kite onto another sheet of white card stock, colored it, cut out the top portion and layered it with pop dots. I then glittered the tail flags and kite with Star Dust Stickles.

Card Inside
The little banner/flag hanging on the left was embossed with the Stampin' Up! Clouds Impressions Folder. The design of this card is very clean and simple - the layering adds pizzazz!

The inside simply says, "Happy Birthday" (Celebrate Good Times) so we can write our own message and sign.
