Well, it has taken awhile, but I finally have time to post my husband's birthday card. It was so much fun giving him this card! Revenge is so sweet! I'm sure I'll never get a Sympathy card for another birthday again! What made it worse for him was I waited to give it to him at his party! Bwahahaha!
This whole process was sprung from the "getting even" board listed above. I bought the Life is a Party cartridge specifically for the buzzard. How better to say, "I love you" than with a buzzard? lol! The box to hold the card is on the left-hand side - made from the same cartridge. It was posted on the blog earlier. The right is the front of the card. I used the Cuttlebug to add dimension to his wings. Love, love, love the vulture!
The card could not just be a "regular" card. it had to be multidimensional! After all, it is his BIG 4-0!
Then I took wings from Gypsy Wandering and added them to a clock piece I had already cut out from some paper/project some time ago. The mummy is from Happy Hauntings. Since time seems to be moving rapidly and we always seem to be chasing it, I felt it was a perfect reminder to my hubby that it's getting away from him. (smirk) I added a hand to hold him back. Hehehe. I added some left over "wrought iron" for the bottom. I then used stickers and rub-ons for the wording and embellishments. The designer paper is from Making Memories.
Then, since he was "oh so kind" to me, I felt it was fair play to call him an "old man". The old man is from Mini Monsters cartridge. The cake is from Life is a Party. I simply didn't add all of the layers. I love how it looks lopsided. I assumed it was due to all of the candles! Hahaha!
The back page is just more Making Memories paper that I distressed, and washi tape. I wanted it to blend a bit better to the front of the card when the card was open. It was such a good buy at their warehouse sale!
Thanks for stopping by!
