Picture Birthday Card


It's my little brother's birthday today, and I had fun making this card for him.  All of the patterned papers are from Simple Stories Urban Traveler. I used the frame die from My Creative Time's Frame & Arrow Dies, cutting a cardstock layer and a patterned paper layer for each picture, just to add some dimension.  The picture on the left is my brother on his 3rd birthday, the one on the right is with his first son when he was a newborn 7 years ago, and the one in the center is from just a few weeks ago, with his 3-year-old son.  It's fun to see how much his 3-year-old looks like he did at that age!


I thought this sentiment from MCT's Wow! So Many Candles stamp set went perfectly with my pictures.  I added a cute arrow cut with the arrow die from Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies.
