The Best Birthday Card Ever!

My son set me a task ... he said he wanted my ‘best card ever’ for his birthday!!

Now I am not sure I achieved that but I made a pretty good attempt and made this very detailed 3 page card for him using the very happy and bright Bo Bunny Ad Lib papers!

I started off with some snowflake coredinations cardstock and made a square concertina card. I have then taken some of the Bo Bunny papers, Vertigo, Wild Thing & Pebbles and made 3 backgrounds for my pages. I’ve used my favourite Versamagic Jumbo Java to ink all the edges.
After deciding where my 3 photos were going to go I set about making each page into a mini layout!

For the 1st page I used a punched piece of the Vertigo to go across the page and attached it with eyelets and some Honeydew Bakers Twine
The alphas are AC Thickers Daiquiri in both Black and Green together with stickers from the Echo Park For the Record sheet
Some Jenni Bowlin Black Tiny Circle Alpha finished it off.

For the 2nd page I used the BB Ad Lib Combo alpha stickers, some more of the Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alphas in Black and Red and the ‘Celebrate Life’ is from the Verbaige paper
I have also used a couple of dymo labels.

The 3rd page I used a speech bubble from the Ad Lib paper, some stickers from the Combo Alpha Stickers, ‘Life is Good’ and ‘Love’, some more AC Thickers Daiquiri Black and AC Thickers Daiquiri Green, Jenni Bowlin in Black and a red ‘kiss’ from the alpha stickers sheet.

After I had stuck on my photos I added some my2angels charms, a couple of Bikes and a Little Boy, to match the theme of my photos.

The verdict ... he loved it!! And I have to say I think it is definitely one of my best!!
