Birthday card again

This time I'm sharing a birthday card for a one-year old.  Little James turned one!  Time flies.

The stamp set Party Animal from Lawn Fawn is always a wonderful helper in making birthday cards.  Here, I only needed this one stamp set that has all images to make this card.  I like that I could use the small images to create a subtle background like it is some patterned paper.  I added a star shaped die cut as the focal point for the bear and the birdy.  Finally I cut out a banner for the greeting.

This card came together at no time, which was awesome as I was running late to his party. :p

My card is entering the following:
Jo's Scrap Shack - anything goes
Cut it up - birthday cards
Come and get it - cards for kids
The Paper Players - cut it out

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is a wonderful way to celebrate a first birthday, and this cute card is sure to have a spot in a memory book. The focal image is darling, and you did a fabulous job using the tiny stamps for the background. I love that about the Lawn Fawn sets, too. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Jo's Scrap Shack.
