Birthday Card by Chris

I couldn’t resist. Remember Lori’s sweet numeral 3 card using her Gypsy and Hello Kitty cart? Well, I have a grandson who loves Superman and has a 3-year birthday coming up, so I decided to adapt her card. I used SCAL3 with my Black Cat and made one numeral 3 at approximately 4 7/8 x 4 ¼. (The font was Cooper Black.)  I then made a shadow layer which I duplicated, flipped vertically and unioned into a topfold card. I cut the cardbase from blue cardstock and the top layer from red and used my ATG to put them together.  I trimmed the bottom of the 3 a fraction of an inch so it would stand and then colored the superkid with my Copics. I just love my paint dauber, which was just the perfect size for coloring in the yellow circle with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. I added the “g” with a mini stamp I have and attached him with an action wobble. Another birthday card done with many thanks to Lori for the original idea.
