I made this card for a young fellow celebrating his 4th birthday. A friend had given me this gnome die as a gift and I thought he'd be just as cute on a birthday card as a Christmas card, so I chose some bright primary colors. The orange background was embossed with a CB birthday ef, and the navy oval was cut with a MFT stitched die. I used a snippet of striped paper for his hat and used a Martha Stewart punch for the balloons, stenciling in the #4 with glaze pens. The sentiment was from a SSS stamp set, heat-embossed with white on navy bits.
I'm sharing this with the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday #220 - stripes
Cardz 4 Guyz #277 - age is just a number
Cute Card Thursday #691 - anything goes
(bright colors theme optional)
I hope this little gnome brought you a smile today as well as the recipient of this card. Take good care and have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!
