Hello everyone! Here is Birthday card #5, which happens to be for my Grandson. I have been racking my brain for weeks about what kind of card to do for my Grandson. He is turning 15 and I really couldn't think of anything age appropriate until I saw a picture of an Easel card on a website out of the UK. It was perfect! He spends about 50% of his time playing his DS and the other 50 on the computer! This card is larger than what I usually make at 51/2 X 51/2. I didn't have any carts with a computer on it, so I printed some clip art and used the bottom for the keyboard. The screen is done in some shiny Vellum. I shined up the keyboard a little with a silver gel pen, and popped the words Happy Birthday to give it a little demension.I added the mouse as an afterthought and attached it with memory thread. the candle was hand stamped, glittered up and cut out. Hope you like, and thanks for peeking!
