Card Share: Away We Go Birthday (Simple Stories Yearography)


Yesterday was Tom's birthday (I'll bet you can't guess how old he is, LOL). I made him this card while I was at a crop last weekend. This is pretty much all Simple Stories Year.o.graphy (love this collection for guy cards/pages) with the addition of Little Yellow Bicycle's canvas numbers inked to match the blue in the patterned paper). There's a brown rub on heart on top of a blue brad inside of the "6". Sometimes it's hard to get rub ons to stick to metal. Rough up the area a bit with sandpaper and then the rub on transfers beautifully. Just a little tip for the day...


I added brads to the spokes on the bicycle wheels and put foam squares on the back of the sticker to add dimension.


Since the patterned paper already had a label on it, I used that spot for the sentiment.


A bit of machine stitching finished it all off. Now I just have to figure out how to stay away from the chocolate birthday cake left overs so I don't finish those off. :)
Pin It!
