Kyler's 1st Birthday Card

I made Kyler a card today, which was a circus card. I wanted to give him a circus birthday, but it didn't work out, since my daughter had to have disc replacement surgery this last week. We weren't sure how she would feel, so we were playing his party by ear. So, I made him a circus card.

The tent stamp is from Impress and is one of their own designed stamps. I embossed it on white paper, then cut it out. The banner is a Memory Box pennant stamp. I also embossed the ink with red to make it pop. I added punched letters and made a matching pennant flag for the circus tent with his age of 1 on it. The pole for the flag is a paperclip that I cut.  I cut the tent opening and put a lion brad on top of a pedestal. To make the pedestal, I used an EK coffee cup finger punch and trimmed a few spots. I added a yellow star brad in the middle.  I used gray straws for the tight wire and then I added red and white twin and a bicycle brad with the sock monkey brad doing a handstand. The paper is out of a 4 x6 DCWV paper stack.  The inside birthday stamp is from Stamp Craft. I stamped it and then used a Nestability to cut out the shape. The red striped paper was from a  DCWV paper stack.
