Big Bold 4th Birthday

My nephew's 4th birthday is next week, so I decided to get his card done a little early and not wait until the last minute like usual. His card is similar to a Christmas card I made with the Big Bold birthday set. On the birthday card I used 4 presents though since he will be 4 (and I knew he'd notice if there were less than that). I stamped the various presents in Old Olive, second generation Blue Bayou and Pumpkin Pie and added the bow in Basic Black. The designer paper on the bottom is from the Creative License Simply Scrappin' kit from the Fall/Winter catalog. I added a strip of Pumpkin Pie to separate the DSP from the presents and added Blue Bayou double-stitched ribbon on top of the Pumpkin Pie.

To create the sentiment, I used a Pumpkin Pie marker to ink the word Happy from one of the sentiments in the It's Your Birthday set. I then added the 4th from Short Order Numbers in Blue Bayou. I punched it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch, added it to a Blue Bayou scallop circle, and adhered it to the card with the black brad.

Ink: Old Olive, Blue Bayou, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
