Patriotic Birthday Card

Well, like I have said before, I think it is important when making a card to make it special for the recipient by using a color, symbol or putting a meaningful memory or saying into it.  I mean what is the point of hand making cards for people if you don’t want it to mean anything to them?  You could just go buy one if you didn’t want it to be personalized!

One of my uncles is a very patriotic guy and really appreciates the US flag.   Being that I hadn’t used my Stand and Salute cart EVER I thought I would try to get some use out of it by making a birthday card for my Uncle.  It is not easy to make a card like this attractive, but I did the best I could.  I hope you like it, but better yet, I hope he likes it J.
I used Stand and Salute for the flag, A Child’s Year for the image of the kid holding a flag with his wagon in tow.  Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped using a glue pad and then PK Glitz glitter (which I absolutely love – it just sparkles so much better than regular glitter).  Thanks for looking!
