Happy Birthday Card/Mini Album

My sister's youngest child, Jonathan, has been studying in Paris since last June.  On January 1, Jonathan's entire family (mother, father, sister, and two brothers) traveled to Paris and visited for eight days.  During that visit, my nephew, Michael, was the only one who posted daily updates on FaceBook, which I really appreciated.  Michael's birthday is January 15, so I decided to send him a special card this year.  Here's Michael's birthday card slash mini album, featuring many of the images he shared on FaceBook.

The base of the card was created with two holiday cards
I covered with card stock.  On the front cover, I did some
fussy-cutting to create the front pocket and popped
the sentiment with foam squares.
Front of pocket tag.
Back of pocket tag.

Now you can begin to see how I overlapped
the holiday cards to create three panels.
The center panel is where the holiday cards
overlapped to create a pocket.
The center pocket was big enough
to accommodate a large tag.

The back of the large tag gives Michael
an opportunity to do some trip journalling.

And here's the back of the card.  I found the 'D' stamp
in a little shop in New York City.  I think it makes
a nice signature for my paper projects.
