Hoppy Birthday 2 You


Today I bring you one of the cutest digital images from McMahon Five Designs Blog.  The image and sentiments were created by Kris of Imagine That, one of the Illustrators for McMahon Five Designs.  When I was looking at the image on my laptop my youngest grandson, Levi saw it and said I like that Mom Mom.  So I asked him if he would like me to make him a Birthday card with the image.  Oh you know what the answer was to that question.  Levi will be Four in August.  And its nice to have a card ready for his Birthday.  Got to get out my Envelope Punch and make a matching envelope.

NOTE:  Stop over to the McMahon Five Designs Blog to see more projects created by the Design Team.

Below are two photos of my card (front & inside views).  Remember you can click on the photos to view them in their original size.  Below the photos are the details of all the supplies I used to make the cards. 


Front View



Inside View


DETAILS:  The digital set Party Animals comes in both color and outline (black and white). I decided to use one of the sentiments on the inside of the card.  And I put Levi’s name on the balloon.  You have an option of a blank balloon or one that comes with a saying on it.

All of the white card stock is by Neenah.  The colored card stock is by Recollections.  And the printed paper is by SBW (Scrapbook Wizard) I got at a yard sale.

The two adhesives I used on my card are Inkssentials Glossy Accents by Ranger and Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive tape runner. And  I used Stickles Glitter Glue  in two colors: Yellow and Lime Green.

All the embellishments: Stars, photo corners and the number “4” are from the Silhouette Store. 

I used Spellbinders dies for the two mats on the front and inside of the card.  I must apologize because I cannot remember the name of the dies.  I bought them so long ago and took them out of the original container and did not think to label them.

If you have any questions about my card feel free to contact me at
