I-phone birthday card …

My new son-in-law is an IT developer and writes computer programs for phone apps, so this fun i-phone birthday card was just perfect for him …

Inspired by Melissa’s card, I used pieces of world spectacular designer series paper to mat and layer the card, and cut pieces of cardstock to make the i-phone.

I stamped the “screensaver” with the clockworks stamp set, and to make a random pattern across the horizontal strip.

Making a matching envelope to fit the square card was really easy with the simply scored scoreboard and diagonal plate…

I added a soda pop top to act as a closure, with a little cupcake from the itty bitty bits set stamped in matching ink.

Finally, I added a basics designer button tied with a length of whisper white baker’s twine in a knot, and 3 mini brads.
