This card is for my nephew, Cody. He is turning 15! This left me with a challenge though as to how to make him a card appropriate for a teenager and it be a masculine card as well. My Cricut cartridges are limited so I don’t have many images for teenagers. Luckily, on the “Just Because Cards” cartridge, there was a rocket themed card so I went with that. I hope it doesn’t look too young. The entire card is made using all of the layers for the rocket theme, even the card base. All of the layers are cut at 7 inches, except for the inside sticker which is cut at 2 inches. The envelope is also cut at 7 inches and fits the card very well. The card when folded measures 3 1/8 x 7 inches so it’s a tall, skinny card. I did something a little different on this one – I glued another card base in white to the inside of the red card base. It looks like a liner and I like the added weight. The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is a rub-on.
Thanks for looking!
