Good OLD Gus.  I use “Gus” digi stamps from Bugaboo very often for male birthday cards.  This card is for my dbil who will be —— no don’t worry I won’t giveaway his age.  I hope he enjoyed his birthday and likes the card.

I didn’t construct this card in the usual way.  Instead of cutting card and folding it in half to make the base, I cut 2 card bases and joined them at the top with strong ds tape then decorated the front panel.  Then I added an eyelet at the top for added strength near the fold.  This photo might show the fold more clearly.

From the back.

I have paper pieced Gus’s overalls, party hat and the balloon.  Apart from the paper piecing it is a very straightforward card with some  Prima Alphabet/number stickers  and a few Kaisercraft Rhinestones.  The paper is from My Mind’s Eye “Away We Go”.

Bye for now,
