Classic Stars Birthday Card


We are off to a birthday party today for a very special little boy who is turning 1. Isaac goes to a playgroup with my son, run by a wonderful organisation that helps special children reach their potential.

Here is the card I made for him:

I wanted to use a bit of symbolism in this card. I used stars to remind Isaac that he can reach for the stars, and the lion to give him the courage to do so. The symbolism is probably a bit lost on a 1 year old, but it's there anyway.

Card Stock: Pacific Point, Real Red, Whisper White
Stamps: Fox and Friends (new), Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel
Ink: Versamark, Ruby Red
Other: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Die, Dimensionals

Catch you later - we're off to party like a 1 year old!



  1. Oh this is a lovely card, and I am sure the sentiment behind it wont be lost on this little boys family, its cery cute Tina, and the lion just finishes it off.

  2. this is super cute! i love the stars and that lion is very nice! great symbolism!!

  3. Love the clean, bold look of this card, Tina. Gorgeous for a 1-year-old!

  4. Love the card and the symbolism behind the images too. So meaningful.
