Sweet Stampin' ~ Birthday Boys

Hey there lovely crafty pals. I'm here tonight with an extra post for Sweet Stampin'. It's not my week to post, but I just love the theme this week and it has just been my small boys 9th birthday, so I couldn't resist playing along with his birthday card. 

I've used a fun paper from a boys set which had lots of techy designs in it. None of those worked quite as well as this barcode paper however, so this was the one I chose. I think the colours just work so well on this card. 

The stamping was done using a fabulous Alien Invaders Video Game from a Hunky Dory set from their 'For The Love of Stamps' range. I knew when I saw this set, that I would want to create for my techy boys with it. Zac is such a keen gamer, so I knew he would think this card was fun. Straight away he spotted that the 'High Score' might have something to do with his age, and he was right! I worked out how many days old he was and used that as the high score number. He loved that…
