Birthday Card for my Father in Law

Remember when I made a card for my father in law for his birthday and in my haste I popped it in the mail without taking a picture of it? Ya, that sucked. Thank goodness my mother in law totally understands (she makes cards too) and didn't think it was weird when I asked her to photograph it for me.

She was taking pictures off her camera this week so she sent it my way. Funny, when I looked at the picture I realized I also forgot to put the ribbon detail I had planned. Whoops.

I think this idea came from something I saw on the silhouette flickr group. I love this happy birthday circle. It's just fun! I don't know if you can tell, but the sentiment is on the inside of the card and pops through the hole in the front. I'm pretty sure you can see that, but you never know. Anyway, this is a simple, fun card and can be made more masculine or kid friendly just depending on the colours you choose. You can even do all sorts of colours of stars if you want to add to the interest. This will be a design I do again for sure.


  1. very nice. I always mean to make my cards, but never seem to find the time, until after the party. lol

  2. cool. you are a whiz at that machine. I have a cricut and barely use it.


The fact that you take the time to leave me comments makes my day! Thanks for taking the time. I read every single one.
