Well hey there, bday boy!


Hi all!  This is Melody from A Splash Here and There blog. Thanks Pam for letting me share my project with the Bugbytes readers once a month!  Today I'm sharing a boy's birthday card I created for my nephew who just turned 5 a few days ago.  This project was designed using the Silhouette Studio and cut with my Cameo. 

The base of the card is a pennant card by Lori Whitlock (Design ID #44887).  I used the internal offset feature on the front layer (in white) to create the faux stitching in black ink.  Then I filled the top layer of the card with the journey dot pattern by KI Memories (Design ID #22078).  I used the Happy Sans font for the sentiment in the front, set the sentiment to print only, flood-filled in black ink.  Below is a screenshot and the page before cutting (I'm using a Cricut mat on my Cameo).

I used the internal offset feature to create the sentiment on the inside of the card (Happy Sans font), as well as the faux stitching, this time in blue ink.  The knight image is a print and cut png purchased from Lettering Delights.  Below is another screenshot and the printed page before cutting.

I wanted a layered look for some dimension so I
printed 2 of the knight image.
And here are some closeups of the final card.  I added some twine too. 

Thanks for stopping by!
