Bertie’s First Birthday Card – Old MacDonald’s Farm Card

I think this must count as the most cheatiest card ever!
Old MacDonald Birthday CardThe birthday card I had originally planned for Bertie’s first birthday turned out to be totally pants, time was running perilously close, so what’s a girl to do but raid her sticker box ……. and this pack of farm stickers answered my prayers!  I just took them out of the packet, left them on the card backing exactly as they were and just did a bit of emergency mat and layering on patterned and silver card!  Bertie, bless him, will never know, that all the animals etc. were not the result of many hours strategic and very careful placing by his Nanny, who was really hoofing it.
The card base was hand cut from an A4 sheet of white linen effect card and measures 21cms x 13cms.

Easy or no, I think it's an awesome card for a first birthday. I can just see little Bertie pointing to each animal and trying to repeat the name with a little coaching from his Gran!

Well if you hadn't have said I'd have never guessed. The card is brilliant and he will love and treasure it I'm sure.
