Birthday Boy

Posted by Micah at 9:43 AM


My nephew Aidan is turning two at the end of the month, he's getting so big! I made this card from a template from A Path of Paper blog. So much fun to make and super easy!

I wanted to keep this one fairly simple so I didn't use anything but the base cardstock (in one of the many blues from Stampin' Up, I can't tell which one heh). I used Night of Navy ink to darken the edges of the overalls and pocket so they'd stand out a bit and to add smudges... cause boys are dirty! Always dirty!

The stitching is just a white marker and the "a" is a rub on. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out (though next time I won't do it when my toddlers are up so I can get my stitching straight! gah!).

Hopefully Aidan likes it too!
