Explosion September Birthday Card

Hello and happy Monday!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for my brother's 50th birthday!  I made several cards and handed them out for other people to mail to him - so he got plenty of cards this year!

This features Bugaboo Stamps September Word Art digi.  I popped up the word art on top of a calendar I printed from online.  It was a little too plain for me so I added a bit of copic refill smooshing.  And when you open the card, it's an explosion card!

So this is the inside!!  This took a few tries using my scor-pal and a few different tutorials until I got the exact fit I wanted.  I ended up using a full sheet of white copy paper (8.5 x 11 inch).

The inside uses a stamp set from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  I must say, I was happy with the end result.

Just a quick share today.  Thank you for taking a look.  Have a wonderful week!

This meets the following challenges: 2 Sisters: Something with the letter SA Perfect Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Love to Craft: Anything Goes, and Scor-Pal: More than One Score.

I really love both cards! I'm always at a lost for birthday cards. Right now they are very "predictable"....yours is's really cute and clever and perfect for a man. What a great idea giving cards to others to send so he would get plenty of cards. The EXPLOSION CARD!!! That's crazy cool! I would probably be pulling my hair out, but like you, I would stick with it till I figured it out....10 sheets of paper later. I have done one weird fold card, but it's not quite like this. Very cool! I hope you are feeling better from your cold.

Now isn't this the cutest thing ever! What a clever idea for a masculine style birthday card!! I just love how you've done the inside too!! :) Now...if you were like me messing with my brother, I would load the inside of that card full of confetti for him to open and spill everywhere! TEE HEE! Yes, I'm a sneaky sis!! :) Thanks for the fun inspiration!! HUGS
