Texting HB2U

This is what I came up with for my son's 14th birthday card (on my second attempt)!  The first one I made would have caused him to roll his eyes and, though he might have found it funny, would have reinforced his impression of how technologically inept I often am!  In my first attempt, I accidentally glued the cell phone cover over the acetate & greeting with the little round button part on the top!  I failed to notice it until after I had firmly pressed down on the adhesive, making it impossible to pull off and reset!  OMG!  How could I do something so stupid?  It wasn't hard, really!  Since he didn't want to celebrate his birthday with cards & gifts until after school, I had all morning to recreate it.  Phew!  This one may not be perfect, but at least it's less embarrassing!

Supplies:  Clearly Besotted "Text Me", Cuttlebug Wedding Suite embossing folder, clear acetate and embossing powder, Stampin' Up! dimensionals, Brilliant Blue, Tempting Turquoise, and Gumball Green cardstock and ink.


  1. shouldn't a 14 yr old always be embarrassed about his mom??? :)

  2. It was a really great idea to make such a wonderful greeting card for your son! I think that he will love it!
