I began making this card by creating a template in Publisher. I have made a couple more of these cards and I always use the same basic template, but change the headlines, storylines, photos, etc., to fit the receiver. It's always fun to try to come up with something personal, but fun. For this card, I've also added layers with foam tape for the "Exclusive" title box and the party hat and gift. This gives the card some added interest and helps these items stand out. The star brads also add a little dimension.
I'm hoping you can see the layers a little in the angled picture (even though it's not a very good photo!). Finally, here's a photo of the sentiment on the inside - also computer generated. I make this card at 5" X 7" to give me enough room for all of the elements.
Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
