My little devil of a nephew, Sawyer, will be celebrating his 3rd birthday in early August. He is spunky and has that "I'm into some trouble" sparkle in his eye. He is a daddy's boy for sure and I knew I needed to make him a special birthday card. My sister is thinking about doing a farm/barnyard theme for his birthday. This kid is flannel and overalls all the way.
I wanted to use the Color Throwdown #300 challenge. First I started by cutting out a "3" from some Navy cardstock. I thought I could make a cool pattern behind it, like plaid from a flannel. Once I covered up the pattern, I didn't like how dark it looked. I had to step back for a bit and reenvision it. I loved the plaid, so I made it simple by just leaving the plaid image in the corner and attaching the Navy "3" I had punched out and discarded.
I'm not going to lie. I had to check out Google to see how to make a plaid pattern. Once I saw it and did it, I felt kind of dumb because it was so darn easy. I hope he will like the card and his barnyard party.
