So I realized yesterday that my younger son's birthday is this week, and I needed to make him a card. You know how that goes, right? I might have a bazillion birthday cards laying around, but they aren't "special" ... made just for him. I'm convinced this is why I don't send more cards; they all have to be special, and I simply run out of time!
I just made this:
That's a belly band holding it closed. Here it is open:
(yay) It's two-sided, so I took advantage of that and just used pieces from both sides. I mitered those inside corners myself. (yes, proud, again) The stars are on purpose, mostly because I totally botched that one corner. I think it looks like I meant to do that. Afterwards, I decided it would have needed something, anyway, so there you go! :D Since I had the stars on the inside, the belly band decoration was an easy decision.
Okay, I'm going back in for some more! Thanks for stopping by!
What a cool idea - love it!ReplyDelete
Love that fold idea... Thanks for a peek at a cool man card. *smile*ReplyDelete
Great card! Those mitered corners aren't so bad once you figure oit the angles....on another note ...... I finally figured out how to read your blog on my phone.ReplyDelete
Love the fold on this great scrappy guy card! The stars are perfect!ReplyDelete
I'm sure he will love it. The stars are a nice touch and no one will be the wiser. Those banner ends are a little tricky - have you ever tried using a corner of a square punch for that?ReplyDelete
