I am the proud uncle to four nephews and a niece. Garrison is the oldest, and today is his tenth birthday.
As I sat down to make a card for him over the weekend, I realized I don’t really have a lot of stamps that work well for a 10 year old boy. I reached for Make a Monster, but that’s really too young for a preteen (he’s excited to become a preteen at 10 years old, by the way). The design of Build a Cake seems too mature (whatever that means). The last thing I want is to be a lame uncle. As you can tell, I worked myself into a tizzy over this.
I decided to go to my newly uploaded MDS2+ and design this card, adding his name to the design for a special touch:
I was really happy with my MDS experience. I’ve fiddled around with it before but not enough to complete a project and get it through the printer. I dropped a shadow under the balloons which give them a very real 3-D look. I added the “10” candles to the left balloon in celebration of his preteen day. All of the design elements here are a part of the MDS2+ download.
Happy 10th Birthday, Garrison!
