A Happy Birthday Pyramid Card

Halloween has always been extra special at our house because our youngest son was born the night before Halloween, just missing being a pumpkin or goblin by about 45 minutes.  I remember when I was pregnant with him seeing the cutest little Halloween t-shirt in one of the store windows at the Galleria and thinking if he had actually been born on Halloween I should really have that shirt for my Halloween baby.  Didn't happen, which probably was a good thing for him, because he doesn't have to exactly share his birthday with a holiday.  But of course his birthday parties were always Halloween-themed, which made them extra fun.  I just wish I was into Stampin' Up! back when my kids were little because of SO many opportunities for gifts, party favors, invitations, note cards, etc.  If you have little ones, you really should get into stamping because you will have many opportunities to be creative!

I love this Pun Fun stamp set, but especially loved this rocket for my son.  When I started looking for ideas for this card, I came across this Pyramid card made by Trina on Splitcoast.  You can find different pyramid template lots of places on the internet, but I loved the colors Trina used on her card.  I added a Jumbo Eyelet for the window on the rocket and some stars, punched with the large and small star punches…..all found in the Stampin' Up! catalog, of course…. and also added a velcro dot just under that front flap to hold it closed.  The pattern I used showed a slit but I couldn't figure that out.  The card had to be mailed so it had to be flat.  I hope he can figure out how to assemble when he receives it!
