Well, January is behind us and hopefully you are enjoying the days in February. Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weddings, and other special events are all a part of February. Today’s post is all about birthdays! In this case, ninety-two birthdays!
I would like to share a birthday card I created for a 92 year-old gentleman that enjoys golf. Yep! Golfing is a sport one can continue well into their golden years, as long as their health allows them!
Creating this card was like a fun puzzle. The small die-cut golf cart set from Memory Box has several little pieces. I added some sparkling stickers for the wheels of the cart. The polka dot embossed background was inverted so it would resemble the tiny dimbles of a golf ball. The stamped balloons from Darcie’s Circus Birthday collection were hand cut and tied to the back of the golf cart with silver thread. They were also mounted on foam squares to add more dimension to the card.
My customer requested a funny card, so I matched the inside message with the golf score. (Which is a golf score I would love to have!) I hope the birthday golfer will get a chuckle from this message.
Creating personalized cards for special people is one of the reasons I enjoy handmade cards. When someone receives a card they know was created just for them, they are sure to appreciate the extra effort the sender gave to thinking about them.
Take some time to check your calendar for special cards that you need to send to someone special. A personalized card would put a smile on their face! If you need some ideas, I am here to help!
Enjoy your creative time and thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
