Super Size Birthday

Happy Fry-day!  It's Jeanne with a quick birthday card.  I have several nephews who are of "that age" - too old for kid cards but young enough that you want a fun, lighthearted card.  This one is perfect for those guys (and girls too!)  I don't know one young man who doesn't love food and this Build-a-Burger die from the new Circus release is perfect for them!

The card is simple to create.  I cut the food pieces from white cardstock and used Distress Oxide ink in several colors to shade them.  I found I needed a few shades of yellow and brown for the bun and a couple of shades of brown for the burger patty.  (My burger here leaves off the ketchup and pickles because I don't like those on mine - LOL!) I wanted the fry box to be solid so I cut that from red and yellow cardstock.

Next, I cut a red A2 card base, a red striped panel 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches, a yellow strip 2 x 5 1/2 inches and a white circle using the second largest of the Stitched Scallop Circle dies.
I adhered the striped panel to the card base, then I stamped my sentiment on the bottom of the yellow strip and glued it 1/2 inch from the left edge of the card.

The fries and burger are glued onto the circle....

and I used foam tape to pop that up from the front.  This card goes together very quickly and is super cute!  I'll be sending this to one of my nephews whose birthday is at the end of the month.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  Be sure to visit the online store where the new Circus release is on sale for a limited time!
