My attempt with this card was to create a masculine birthday card. I have to make a lot of birthday cards for my many brothers and nephews, and I have a hard time coming up with new ideas. I mean, in the end the guys aren't going to really care about the time and effort that went into the card - it'll just end up in the recycle bin - but I want to know that I've put my best effort into the creation. ;)
The layout for this card is based on a card that I received months ago from my friend Angela.
I made a mask of the ticket stamp, and used it to created the layered ticket look. I then wrote "Happy Birthday" inside the tickets. I popped the tickets up with dimensionals on top of some patterned paper.
The first flap opens up to reveal another fold of patterned paper...
