This is the card I made for my brothers 20th It was pretty simple with some card distressed with antique linen ink and a green gold twinkling H2O and some peelcraft stickers coloured with brown sharpie for a bit of textural variety on a readymade background paper with a few clocks stamped on for good luck - (well actually cause I liked it).
This is the first stage of a 2 year old birthday card - I know that it's not completely appropriate for a two year old but she won't be very interested in the card and I needed to play with the new rubber after I had so carefully cut and indexed the sheet.
The stamps are from the elegant artsy swirls sheet coloured with twinkling H2O's - also a relatively new aquisition (after hearing about them for so long) and the background diamond pattern was stamped with versamark and covered with pink pearlex - I've since seen a beautiful use of this stamp here if you're interested in seeing it.
This is the card finished with Rubbadubbadoo greeting and a shrinky necklace to fill the gap - made pretty much as we were walking out the door to the party.
And this bright beauty was for a five year old (obviously) the boat and bee squares are doors which open upwards to reveal a happy birthday message, soe of the squares are recessed and some ome to the front - it's the grid from the art 4 frames sheet and anything I could find that I thought might interest a five year old. If I do a similar style card again I will put little shaker windows too.
