Making handmade Birthday cards are so much fun.  My nephew is turning 14 tomorrow.  I can’t believe how fast that went and I am only the Aunt, I can’t imagine how my sister feels.  Well, I really didn’t know what kind of card to make.  I’m wasn’t sure if I want to use my Cricut Expression or to rubber stamp this card.  After a couple of days contemplating,  it turned out that rubber stamping won.

I found a stamp by Stamps Happen, Inc of a cat holding alot of balloons.  I stamped the image using Tuxedo Black Ink from Memento Ink and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  It looked a little “dull” so for a few of the balloons I added 3-D Crystal Lacquer for a cool effect.

It still wasn’t the look that I wanted so I decided to use my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday embossing folder.  I then cut the stamped image and glued it to the top of the embossed piece of cardstock with my new pink ATG gun (Advanced Tape Glider).  Now that’s what I wanted it to look like.

I hope Ryan likes his handmade birthday card.  I know he will not get another one like it!  Happy Birthday Ryan, enjoy your Birthday.

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
