RIC 61 - Happy Birthday!
Sometimes you just don't know exactly where your card is going to end up. This was one of those times.
I started with this very graphic inspiration from Runway Inspired Challenge:
I tried a number of different ideas (who was that who asked in a comment if I ever have cards in the bin? The answer is a very, very big YES!) and finally ended up making Struan's birthday card (his birthday is later this month) with these Red-Baron-WWI-type colours (he's very interested in becoming a pilot and is going to gliding school this summer). But now I'm also getting a Japanese vibe from it. See what I mean?
I used an old Cuttlebug die for the Happy, new PTI dies for the numbers and medium-aged PTI dies for his name (cut 3 times, and stacked, one red over two blacks to provide definition.)
Despite its odd shape, it will fit in a regular 4.25x5.5 envelope.
