Birthday boy, pt. 2

I mentioned last week that I’ve gotten two orders for birthday cards for 40-year-olds. This is the second one.

The image is “Flirty Seniors” from “Make It Crafty“, as usual printed on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics. The text reads something like “80 years is nothing”.


Inside I put a panel for a little greeting, as well as a little “booklet” on the left tied with a bow of seam binding colored with blue and green Copics.inside

inside fully opened

The text reads: “Huh? Only half? Oops! Missed a little!” (left). “This is half!” (right) This “little” guy is about half the size of the one on the front, thus the “half” thing.
inside left open p. 1-2

Page 3 and 4 in my little booklet. “This is the better half!” (left) “Now you can choose! Happy 40th birthday!” (right)inside left p. 3-4

On the back I put the name of the birthday boy and his birthday.back

My email and blog address are on the inside flap of the back along with the following phrases: “This card is handmade by Elin Venge. A unique and special copy just for you!”
