Keepsake Card

It's my little boy's 8th Birthday. I like to make my children a special card each year that can be kept. Something nice to look back on. So this is what I've made this year.
I've used the delish patterned papers from Prima. This range is just so beautiful, you really don't actually need to add to much to it. I've stamped the edges, added a few metallic stars and printed his name. The 8 has been cut on my craft robo and glossed, but any thickers can be used instead.

Then inside, I've used the reverse side of the prima paper to match and printed off random facts about my birthday boy. You could even add a photo if you wished. These cards are great for Birthdays, Christenings, leaving or starting school, Anniversaries etc...
Easy to make and lovely to keep.
