Birthday Monsters for Danny

Birthday Cards, Cards

My heart was touched by an article I read online about a five year old boy, Danny, in Massachusetts who has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.┬áDanny’s hometown community is rallying around him to bring him happiness from around the world on his upcoming 6th birthday by asking people to mail him birthday cards.

Of course, I had to send a card.

To be honest, I don’t have a lot of practice making cards for kids, especially for boys. All I knew is that I wanted to make something that might make Danny smile when he saw it.

I cut out the monsters with my Silhouette and then adhered a variety of details to each one. What I think makes this card silly is all the googly eyes. The monsters are adhered to my card base with foam tape. I tied some bakers twine to the balloons (also cut with my Silhouette) and finished them off with Glossy Accents.
