Wow!!! Is it just me or did January just fly by? I personally feel it flew by. Well with January gone, we better get started with this month since it is a shorter month. So let's get started.
Our Nephew's Birthday is this month. And since I've been sharing so many Valentine's Day cards, I thought I'd change it up a little and share with you his birthday card.
For the main card, I used black cardstock and sized it to make an A2 card. I cut a piece of patterned paper at 4" x 5 1/4" and stitched around the edge with my black zig pen.
For the surfer, I used the cricut cartridge "Pack Your Bags". On page 52 of the manual, I cut everything out at 3 3/4" including the shadow. I inked white around the waves to help give it a rip curling effect. I also inked around the body with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink. Finally, I took my black zig pen and dotted his eye. What a cool dude! Surely makes we want to start thinking about a "Hawaii" vacation.......
Finally, I stamped "Happy Birthday" on the bottom of the patterned paper in memento tuxedo black. The stamp came from Studio 112.
