I adore the cute little critters in the Bonanza Buddies Suite of products.  I wholeheartedly agree they are for ANY age!!  Hopefully you agree and will give this cute card a try.



I love the Toucan.  He is so cute and struts around saying “look at me”!  I debated between the balloons or gifts as the background from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.  I liked the brighter colors of the gifts to match the proud fellow’s coloring.

The folded tag on the front is a new favorite technique.  I hope you love it as much as I do once I explain it.  I used the tag from the Bonanza Dies but just a little bit differently. I took a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 (more because it was what was laying there!) and it happened to fit perfectly.  I folded it in half and layed it on the die.  Where I did not want it to cut on the left side, I used removable tape to hold it in place.  I placed the folded edge of card stock as close against the cutting edge as I could . I wanted the stitched detail to still be there.  It worked perfectly!  Woohoo!  I love when ideas turn out well.

Here is a picture of the inside of the tag.

Because I wanted to be able to open the tag, I could not do a normal loop of ribbon through the hole at the top.  A quick fix was a tiny bow that I secured with a glue dot just above the hole.  This is layered on a full card so you still have the inside for normal sentiment and your love.

Thanks for stopping by today!  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the post.  I appreciate any comments and I do respond.  I usually respond to the email and not from my blog.  I am usually on my phone and not the computer after I do my posts.
