First Bouquet of the season

JB's birthday card

Right before we left on the Stampin' Up! cruise, our son celebrated his 17th birthday.  I didn't have time to share the card I made for him before we left, so I wanted to do that now.   I used our 3x3 Mini Envelopes (pg 167 in the catalog) and tucked in each flap, decorated them with paper from the Western Sky DSP pack, then bound them with my Bind It All machine.  Inside each pouch, we put a bill: a $1, $5, $10, $20 and $50.  Jason exclaimed he would have liked 6 pouches... and we said, "well then there would have been a $2 in there!" LOL  Get it?  hee hee







Check out these FAB photos from the ship's photographer on the cruise... wow.. I love these!!  You are one handsome dude, JB! :)

Awesome idea for a birthday card!
(Nope, still haven't used my Bind It All)
Very nice pictures of your son!

Love the card you did for your son. How clever! That would make a great gift for my grandson since he just loves to get money and shop for his own choices. I just ordered 3 x 3 envelopes from SU but mine don't look like yours with the money tucked in. Any secrets to this? Also, do you have a link to the bind it all machine? I could google it,... that looks like it would be pretty handy. You do such great projects! TFS

Sue Duffy

I absolutely love this idea, Patty! And the handsome dude? I see his mother in him. TFS

Alexandra Hobson

And, your son is one handsome young man!!! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

I think he looks like David the American Idol dude. Except the hair color he could pass for him in the B/W photo.
Kiss him for me! He Looks like a star!
