Birthday gift card

My nephew just celebrated his 40th birthday
and my niece had a surprise party for him.
Here is the card I made for him.
I had seen one with a similar design, so I made this
one with the dimensions I needed and made a little 
pocket for a gift card.
It opens to reveal a greeting
And the gift card can be placed in the bottom pocket.
To be honest, I wasn't crazy about the belly band I made,
so I didn't use it and put the card into an envelope with out it.
If I made this card again, I would stamp the
"Life is Good" and attach it to the belly band
and stamp the "Happy Birthday" inside.
This was a time consuming card, since I didn't have any 
measurements and there were a lot of
pieces to it, but it was worth it.
I think it turned out great.
And, by the way, he was totally surprised
when he came home to a party.
We had a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you've been inspired in some way.
Happy Crafting!
