Sky's The Limit Birthday Card

The holiday season has begun and my crafting is lagging behind.  Remembering that I needed a birthday card for a 1 year old and a wedding card made me hunt through my stash of handmade cards. Happily, I found a suitable wedding card so I just had to whip out a birthday card.  Because the party is being held at the Pacific Aviation Museum, I decided to hunt for the Dandelion Designs stamp set I purchased years ago.  My memory was accurate and the set was just right for this card and paired well with the Lawn Fawn stamp and die set that I acquired recently.  I stamped the images on marker paper and colored them in with Copic pens before fussy cutting them out.  I embossed the Lawn Fawn cloud images onto the pearlized card blank.  I wanted the clouds to show on the front of the card so I left a big border by die cutting the LF scalloped rectangle of printed card stock smaller than usual.
To make the child's name standout, I die cut the X-cut letters from blue foil paper.  They were then run through a Xyron sticker maker to apply adhesion.  On the inside of the card I used the images from the LF set and used the die set to cut them much easier than fussy cutting!  I like that the clouds show on the inside and outside of the card.  I hope this card gave you some ideas of how to put together an easy birthday card. Okay, onward to Christmas crafting!

Wow, this birthday card is a show-stopper! I had to read your post twice to catch all the elements you added to make your card... love it! I especially liked that you ran the entire card through the embossing folder, such a cool effect with the embossing on the front and on the inside of the card... I must try that too!
