My First Gatefold Card

My grandson had his birthday party with his friends today, so I made him another card.  (I made the card I gave him on his birthday for my DT project.)  Here is the card:

Front of card


Inside of card


The base (green) cardstock and inside patterned cardstock is from the A Boy's Universe paper pack by The Paper Studio.  All other cardstock used is Bazzill.  I cut the robot from the Robotz Cricut cartridge at a height of 5 1/2 inches, and the number for was cut from the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge (built into the E2) at a height of 1 1/2 inches.  The Happy Birthday stamp is Stampin Up! and the ribbon is from my stash.

I also made my own envelope using the Martha Stewart scoring board and cardstock from the A Boy's Universe paper pack.  Here is the envelope:


I'm please with the way this turned out, and it was so much fun to make!
