Snappy Birthday

A friend posted a message on Facebook about a mom asking for birthday cards for her soon to be 6 year old son, Danny.  It seems he has an inoperable brain tumor and all he wants for his birthday are cards.  I'm really glad that I saw this in time to get a card out to him.  In case you want to send one, too…here is the information.

Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035

Here is the card I sent.  I used a cute set from Stampin' Up called Crab & Company.  

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Stampin' Up - Crab & Company
Cardstock: Stampin' Up - Pink Passion, Craft an black, watercolor paper
Inks:Stampin' Up - Craft White, Memories - black 
Markers:  Assorted Tombo Markers
Dies : Spellbinder circles
Miscellaneous:  Small circle punches, ribbon, chalks for sky & ground, ribbon, white gel pen (for shrimp eyes), washi tape

Here's a picture of the inside of the card.  I used my computer to make the message because I didn't have a stamp that said what I wanted to say…and then I decorated the inside with washi tape.  I'm loving using Washi tape to make the inside of my cards more interesting.  If you are like me, you get so busy making the front of the card cute that you forget the inside until you have everything cleaned up.  Washi tape is so quick and easy and adds just a splash of color to tie it all together!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a "Snappy Day" too!

  1. Fabulous colourful card! Love the stamps you've used. I bet he'll love this card as it's so fun. What a great idea of his mom to put it on Facebook to make his birthday a day to remember. The sentiment inside the card is so good. Debra x
