First Birthday

Last weekend we celebrated my nephew’s first birthday.  I did not have a lot of time, so I made a pretty simple card, but I still really like the layout of it and might use it again for another card.


It is a simple white card, with a slightly smaller rectangle of soft green paper, which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Spots and Dots embossing folder.  The rectangle was longer than the length of the embossing folder, so I put it in once and embossed, then turned the paper around and embossed the little bit at the bottom . . . this also left a nice space for stamping the sentiment.

I cut a frame slightly smaller than the rectangle from a smoky blue paper, and I also cut two swirls that I added to the corner.  The number one was cut from Plantin Schoolbook from a paper that had several different colored dots on it, and then I backed it with a shadow cut in purple.

The finishing touch was the sentiment Birthday Boy from the 

Happy Birthday stamp set from Above Rubies Studio.
