Alice in Wonderland Themed Birthday Card

On Tuesday's craft post, I shared with you my daughter's vintage birthday card.  Today I it's my son-in-law's turn as their birthdays are only a few weeks apart.  Jason really loves reading old English Literature, so I decided to make him a card using the Crafty Secrets set "Tea with Alive".

I chose the rabbit out of the set instead of the Alice image, because the recipient is a man.  I also used very dark papers and colors not only to coordinate with the grey rabbit, but also to keep it masculine.

I used the retired Stampin' Up! "Checkerboard" background stamp to mimic the pattern in the rabbit's coat.  That set is available HERE if your interested.

Spellbinder's Nestabilities were used to create all  the shapes.  The sentiment and birthday cake were colored, cut out, and popped up on dimensionals.   I also covered the cake with Shimmer Spray.

The card stock colors are white, black, Basic Grey, and Going Grey.  No designer paper was  used in the making of this card!  :)

Have a great day!  Amy


  1. Great card, the checkerboard stamp gives it the perfect masculine look, and love the vintage style rabbit!
