The thought of making birthday cards conjures up visions of images with cakes and candles. There are as many of those kind of fabulous images as there are individuals celebrating their birthday. Still, somehow none of the images that I have seemed suitable this time.
I wanted to make a birthday card for a very special "over 50" guy. No need for cakes and candles. Something more complimentary or encouraging seems better to me.
I inked up my Sugar Nellie Red the fox stamp and filled it with Copic colors.
I used QuicKutz cookie cutter tags to add a computer-generated sentiment. The little chick is from the Layers of Color Rise & Shine set.
A stamped chicken wire background, also from the Layers of Color Rise & Shine set, a few Punch Bunch grape leaves, and a border of ribbon complete my foxy birthday card.
The sly grin on the face of the recipient was worth a million bucks to me and confirmed that he's seen enough cakes and candles.
