Happy Birthday

My brother soon turns 30 and I felt like making him a card that wasn’t a typical birthday card. Since he (as well as myself) loves travelling, I chose more of a travel theme. I used one of my favorite papers, BoBunny’s Et cetera collection, as well as one of my favourite stamps; Oliver from The greeting farm.


A new decade is a bit like embarking on a new journey, isn’t it? 😉 The arrow points towards the sentence ”Grattis på födelsedagen” which means Happy Birthday in Swedish – I’ve marked it with tiny dots to make it stand out a bit. The paper is ”Always there – For someone you love” from LadyBug and friends, and contains the same words in a lot of languages. I’ve lined the blue papers with a blue ink pad and the beige ones with Distress ink Vintage photo.


The reverse of the card, using another BoBunny favorite, Double dot Island mist:


”Congratulations Wilhelm, 30 years” – with half pearls to mark the dots. 🙂


Papers: BoBunny – Et cetera collection, Tim Holtz- Distress Core’dinations Weathered woods, BoBunny – Double dot Island mist, LadyBug and friends – Always there For someone you love
Stamps: The greeting farm – OA Journey, unknown – alphabet
Colors and effects: Versafine – Onyx black, Distress Ink – ink pads
Decorations: Youdo – half pearls Sepia, Memories (Nille)braces, tags and arrow brad, Prima Marketing – flowers Nature garden
