February birthdays

Three family February birthdays means lots of cardmaking! My son's family has 4 February-March birthdays and celebrates with a Birthday Bash for all the celebrants! I like to send the card for the "special" day but needed tags for the gifts too! Here is the card info....

Mason's 5-year old card was made for a Lego-lover if ever there was one! I have been casing this card on Pinterest for a  while, but a changed it up to be a 5! I also used the Happy Birthday embossing folder on the card layer to add interest... how about that beautiful little face? It's hard to believe he is 5 already! Mason is amazing because he has no idea how awesome he is... he considers himself able to do everything his 7-year old brother can do... so much like his dad did with his older sister...

And he is John and turning 36! He has to be the best son there could ever be... I am just so proud of the man that he has become.  What a blessing to our family!

One of many things he enjoys is golf and I wanted a card that showed him that! It is a time that I see him really relaxed and that is not often. Again, a Pinterest card that I basically tried to just copy! I love the idea of the tee and the long way to go... My Stampin' Up supplier sent a gift of DSP cut to the just the right size to use for the second layer on this card. I love the embossed golfball! How about the layers of green, with sand and water traps?

Carter is turning 7... He has been such a pleasure to watch grow! Although he is our oldest grandson, he is a such an enigma to me... I can't explain the pleasure he brings! His card was harder for me this year because I couldn't get a connection to the videogame he's into now, Mindcraft... so I went for the idea of 7!

Carter also loves cupcakes! So this was my thinking... I used the scallop edge punch and the Happy Birthday embossing folder. The larger scallop punch for the birthday message. I use the create-a-cupcake set quite a bit with the crystal effects on the candle tops.
