Another Birthday Card

This card was made for my dear brother who lives in Alaska, and I don't get to see him very often. He also is not a blog reader, so I feel safe putting it up before his birthday!

I altered on old photo of him when he was about 10 years old and attached it to a dark brown cardstock. I made a double tag out of more cardstock and a small sticker tag and attached eyelet letters for his name. The main cardstock background was stamped with green Staz-On ink and then another background paper of old postmarks and postcards was distressed and attached. I ran a silver grosgrain ribbon with brown birds through the tags, then painted a grunge crown with Lumiere paint and used Stickles on it. The final piece was an old "Love" charm in an abstract shape. 

His birthday is Dec. 19 - Happy Birthday Brother Dear!


  1. HA! I love it.
    Hope your peepers are healing quickly. Will continue to keep you and your family in prayer. Love, Andrea

  2. Your brother will love it! You've done an awesome job on his card. He doesn't know what he's missing by not reading your blog!!

  3. He will absolutely love it! That's a cool photo of him, it shows his personality the way I remember him as our little brother. I love it!
