It was Ben’s godson’s 11th birthday at the weekend so a card was required. Ben and I chatted about what would be suitable and as we looked through recent cards Ben honed in on one of my failures as inspiration. Oscar is already an award winning gymnast at 11 and Ben saw the opportunity to use a Christmas card tag as a medal:
This card looks nothing like my discarded failure, by the way! Obviously we had to have gold numbers and the ribbon colour dictated that the card base would be Cherry Cobbler. The new circle framelit dies added interest to the “medal”. It was a birthday card though, so we needed it to say “Happy Birthday” somewhere:
I attached the medal using glue dots at the bottom of the ribbon so it was easy to raise the medal up. Oscar and his sister Sadie loved this card, which brought a real smile to my face. Happy birthday, Oscar!
See you on Thursday.
