I had to wait until after Jordans Graduation from the Art Institute of Schaumburg in Illinois (He got a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Visual Communication and Motion Graphics) before I could share my beautiful creation.  I didn't want to let it go.  But I know my son he will treasure this card.  I need to go visit my card and book OH yeah and My son.  LOL.  Anyways it took me quite awhile to make this card because the person who put the instructions on her blog (can't remember whos blog I lost it UGH so if you see this let me know so I can give you credit) it was in centimeters not inches so it was rough and there was no patterns just cut here and there and use your judgement.  So I printed it and used it and this is my version of her instructions.

Open up the jacket.

Lift down the shirt

Happy Edwin (I left his hat off he just looked way too happy)

 Here is a poem from my cousin (we share the same grandparents down the line he is my 6th generation 1st cousin)
 Then I also made a film board to give to my son.  Though it would be fun to create from a picture online.  I also wanted it to open and close and then I came up with putting the word congratulations if you lift the piece.  It came out really neat.  YAY.  luv it.
