Ilia's First Birthday Card

Good morning friends

I have a new die - one I've had my eye on since it first came out. When it was in-stock again, I ordered it right away. It's the 'Card In A Box' die by Sizzix. I have made several of them already but will show those another time. This one though, is the card I made for Ilai's First Birthday.

I used the ECD Alphabet die for his name and the word 'one'. The Disney stickers and patterned paper were in my stash, and I used a couple of different Blueprints dies for the embellishments.

The 'Happy Birthday' and borders are ECD Peel-Off's.

The back is where we will write our message.

I love that it folds up and fits into an envelope. Because I added a higher element on the top, this one requires a larger than A2 envelope. I found a nice red one to put the card in for Ilai.
