Alex's Birthday Card

Alex & I have never met.  He's a university buddy of my daughter, who somehow knows that I'm a cardmaker?  So he told Paige that for his birthday, he'd kinda like to receive a card that was handmade by her Mom.  Paige helped me select the design, and since they're in Business school and often have to wear business attire, we thought that this would be perfect.  If you've been around my blog for a while, you may recognize this as a knock off of a card that I made several years ago (which happens to be one of my most-pinned cards ever!):
 I used my Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut out the bow tie, and for this version I added a poof in a little breast pocket.  Here's a side view that shows the dimension of the card a little better:
 And I decided to customize the inside a little:
Happy Birthday, Alex!  From Paige's Mom.
