Another Wednesday, and another Dream Team contribution for Mo Manning. This time I’ve made a birthday card for an avid golfer. What image would be better than Big Guy Golfing?
I found some scraps of mostly green patterned paper from Maja Design. I had no idea that the club he plays at is named Green Joy, so that was pure luck. I added his age on a flag, thought it was fitting. Not that there’s 50 holes on a course (that much I know), but I’m guessing he gets it anyway.
I colored up my golfer to fit my papers and added a bit of green below his feet and the ball. I love his tongue sticking out, he’s SO focused on making that put!
I added a little cluster of banners in the lower left corner, with a sentiment on one of them. It says “a man at his best age” in Norwegian. I stamped it in Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate ink and added a few veneer stars from Studio Calico as accents.
The inside basically has the same design. I made a pocket for some cash on the left side, with a diecut sentiment and some more stars.
The back is also pretty simple, the first line of a Norwegian birthday song stamped in the same dark brown color that I used for the sentiment on the front of the card. I scattered a few stars here, as well.
