|A smiling computer....|
I used Stampin Up's Pretty Petals background stamps to make it look like wallpaper. I pieced together the monitor screen: easy enough. Then I use SU word window punch for the place for the computer's buttons. I printed out and scaled down the computer keyboard and added it below the monitor. The smile was a little tricky , but I think it came out okay.
I started working on the inside of the card by taking white paper and folding it for a pop up card. I again made a simpler monitor screen and attached that above the keyboard. I used Cuttlebug's embossing folder to make the table look wooden. I used Distress Inks from Tim Holtz to accent the raised wood.
The balloons were punched from Martha Stewart's punch in different colors and patterns.
|The mouse I thought was a clever addition!|
I used Stampin Up's Baroque Motif's flourish to add a little birthday look to the inside. I used SU real red ink and added touches of many colored dots.
I found the sentiment online and thought it was perfect: "Another Birthday? That Bytes! Happy 30th"
Wicked fun making this one for him.. Hope Nathaniel likes it....
