Crazy birthday card

Today we went to a birthday card for a friend's 2 year old little boy. We had a great time! Isabella enjoyed playing with all the other kids and Zach's toys and greatly enjoyed the cake. I was going to make just a "simple little card" for Zach but when I looked through my stack of pre-stamped images from WishRAK, I had an idea and simple went right out the window! I decided to finally try a stairstep fold card. I've been wanting to do one for a while now. So here's the final result. I really liked it and so did my DH but then he said "you made that for a 2 year old, are you nuts?" or words to that effect. :) Maybe it was silly to do such an elaborate card but I enjoyed making it and I hope Zach and his parents enjoy the card. Having a soon to be 2 year old myself, I understand that it's likely it didn't even survive the day intact but that's life!

The animals are from High Hopes and the leaves are from a Stampendous Changito monkey clear set I have. The balloon is from a little Fiskars clear set. Happy Birthday by Printworks and I spelled the birthday boy's name with PTI's Fresh Alphabet set.

I definitely need to make more of these cards. There are so many possibilities. I hope you had a great weekend. For me it's back to the office tomorrow. Good night!

Supplies: Stamps: High Hopes, PTI, Print Works, Stampendous, Judith. Paper: PTI white and New Leaf. SU! Real Red and Close to Cocoa. Ink: Palette Noir. Accessories: Cuttlebug, white gel pen, Nestabilities, Copic markers, Spica glitter pen.

Adorable card. I love boy cards and esp love to get ideas for new cards (I have 3 small sons!). Thanks for the inspiration.

I found your blog through the PTI thread about people who updated their blog today. I will definitely be checking it out more. Like you, I also work out of the house, so I TOTALLY know what you mean about stamping at night and wishing we had more time. {sigh}
