Be Inspired # 85 Using a Pennant

Today's task at Cuttlebug Challenge was to create something with a pennant....
How fun that the Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge has these darling birds holding just that!! And this is just the time to make a birthday card for my grandson's second I started with the birds, added his name to their pennant border, and this stair-step card just kept growing and growing!!!
Stair-step cards are fun to make! This one has three sections, plus the two pillars on the ends. The front section holds the message and the cake. The center section is where the green border and the balloons are. It is quite fun to have the balloons on acrylic strips, and attached so that when the card is opened they bounce around. I know one little two year old who will be very happy about that! And the background is on the third section. In this case, I chose a large yellow "sun" shape with the big 2, because I know that is the theme of his birthday party.
I do wish it was easier to see the great dimension that you get with stair-step cards, and especially with the pennant banner heralding the great birthday news! Oh, well... I hope you will try it for yourself, and see just how much fun it is!

SO CUTE, Mom! He is going to just LOVE that special card from his special Nana!!! I am so happy that I can save all of these handmade things, and perhaps when we're both long gone, you will still be remembered for your amazing talent and sweet thoughts.

I love you, Mom! Thanks for putting so much hard work into these awesome momentos!
