So, I present to you the cards I made for them.
I'll start with Dan's. I got the idea from somewhere online. I don't remember where, Flikr, probably. It turned out a little younger-looking than I intended. I think the colours did that and then the monster looked younger than what was used on the original card. So it's not my favourite for a guy in his thirties, but I also know that they don't really read cards all that carefully, so he'll forget in a month anyway. I'll keep the card file on hand and save it for future use when a little boy I know is having a birthday and needs a card! As a card in and of itself, I do like the design. Everything was made on my silhouette.
For Kevin's card, well, he's my brother. I see to it to be a brat whenever possible. I totally borrowed the idea from Hallmark. Thanks Hallmark, but your cards aren't THAT witty in that I'm willing to pay your prices, when I can make one a bit more personal and have the joy of making it myself. So there. Again, designed on my silhouette software, but there's nothing cut out, I just printed it.
I got to watch him open it. He had the exact reaction I was hoping for. :)
