I'm Not Saying You're Old...

Sometimes you need to share a little humor, even when life has you down.  Today I'm sharing a silly little birthday card I made for one of my close friend's birthday yesterday.  Sadly she had just gone through the memorial service for her late husband on Wednesday. 

While her sadness will last a while for sure, she needed a bright and cheerful birthday card.

I selected 'Imagine That Digi Stamp's Rocky's Stonemobile and here is the completed card.

I sized the image to about 3 1/2" tall and then typed the sentiment above and below the image.   After printing on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used Copic markers for coloring.

After pulling some bright papers to go with the colored image, I decided on my layout.  I used Whimsy Stamps Zig Zag Rectangles die set on the image and the green vertical strip.  

The card base is 6" square and I turned it for a side fold.  I added the bright orange to the base and then the vertical strip and finally the colored image.  To complete the card, I used a variegated thread and looped it at the fold five times.  I knotted it just below the top on the left corner.  I didn't have a dinosaur charm, but I found a pair of elephants and decided they would work.  I used an extra strong glue dot to attach the elephants over the knot and to the card base.

 Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
