My oldest son is at an age where he will be attending lots of birthday parties so I am increasing my stash of boy birthday cards. I had a bit of fun making this card over the last couple of evenings. I chose this Mo Manning image for a couple of reasons - first, it was "Talk like a pirate day" on the weekend, and second I just LOVE this image.
The pirate flag is some clipart I found online. I added the "I Spy" wording over top, cut out the image, added a toothpick behind the flag pole and then glued the entire thing to strong cardstock so the entire thing would stand up. What I think is kind-of cool is when the card sits flat, the flag lays down flat too, only to pop up when the card is folded/opened.
A pretty simple card but I find that boys just don't appreciate too much detail and bother.
