Prehistoric Birthday Wishes February 22, 2009

My Ethan has two birthday parties to attend the first weekend in March.  I’m ahead of the game for once!  They are both getting the same card lol.  I don’t think the two 4-year-old boys will mind.   I stamped and assembled the outside and Ethan did the inside of the cards.

I took the same colors and layout from fridays post, except added a circular main focal point using my Circle Scissor Plus.


I used SU! Prehistoric Pals Stamp Set for the cards.  The card base is a 4-1/4″ square piece of Pacific Point CS with a 1″ x 3-3/4″ Tangerine Tango Patterns DSP strip to the left side.  Added a piece of Riding Hood Red 7/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon tied in a knot.  The Whisper White CS piece is a 2-1/2″ circle layered on top of a 2-3/4″ Riding Hood Red CS circle.  Dino and tree top stamped in Kiwi Kiss ink.  Chocolate Chip ink for tree trunk.   I think the sentiment is perfect.  “Wish Big” lol….from SU! Short & Sweet Stamp Set

Again, I let Ethan decorate the inside of the cards.  He is so stinkin’ cute.  He used a Pumpkin Pie Marker for his writing (he just turned five so we are working on his penmanship…it states, “happy birthday connor”), used Chocolate Chip ink for his stamped hearts, and Riding Hood Red for stamped prehistoric pal.


Thanks for stopping by!
