Charting a happy birthday

4th Card

This card went to my brother-in-law for his birthday.

March is a big month for birthdays in my husband’s family, so it’s been a good way to get my card-making projects off the ground. This particular card was “marked” for my brother-in-law’s birthday. When it came time to put it together, I realized I have an abundance of flowery, cutesy papers and not so many of the — shall we say — “manly” papers. My husband actually helped me pick these out of the many. His logic: The map paper because my husband’s family has traveled together extensively, and the diamond-patterned paper for the colors and because the birthday guy seems to have a certain fondness for argyle sweaters. Add a few travel-themed stickers and we have a perfectly personalized birthday card!

Stay tuned for more birthday cards and an Easter-themed card project I am working on.

  1. Mostly the customaryjewels in Asian countries are hand-made.
    For this summer, look for unique pieces that combine an antique look with modern style.
    Even more traditional grooms are taking more of an interest
    in what they wear for their weddings.
