Happy Birthday Josh!!

Today my family and I will be celebrating my eldest son's 26th birthday. The time has just flown by...

A handmade birthday card for a 26 year old male can be tricky so I just browsed through my supplies and grabbed things that I thought 'looked' like him. This stamp set, Birthday Surprise, is just amazing. It has a nice big graphic birthday sentiment and four accompanying images that are also a bit rough and graphic. Perfect!

Happy Birthday Josh!!

I stamped the sentiment onto my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and then placed the image over my white cardstock so I could get a good picture of where I might want my balloons to be and then I just stamped away until I was happy! I grabbed colors that I thought said "Josh"; Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry! To prevent the colors of my balloons bleeding through my sentiment, I stamped it in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in Black Embossing Powder.

I then layered the stamped cardstock onto coordinating cardstock and adhered to my card base. EZ Peasy!

A coordinating enveloped lined with Rich Razzleberry, of course, and a cute sentiment to finish off the inside:

Happy Birthday Josh!!

It just occurred to me that my son and Stampin' Up! are about the same age, lol. Where has the time gone? Seems like just yesterday....
