Happy Birthday Ava

March 31, 2012

My youngest granddaughter Ava turns two today.  I cannot believe how quickly she is growing up.  Anyway I thought I would share the card and the gift bag that I made for her.

I punched a narrow strip of Basic Gray card stock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and attached it behind Rose Red Designer Series Paper.   This piece was then attached to scored and folded Pretty in Pink card stock.  I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and attached it to Basic Gray card stock.  This piece is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  My punch art bear is one that I cased from the Queen of Punch Art (in my humble opinion) – Kim Score.  I did change a couple of things because I didn’t have the right punches.  I made my party hat using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch –  I used Rose Red card stock and the plain pennant and attached a strip of Whisper White card stock to the bottom which I punched using the Scalloped Pennant and then trimmed.  I also used the smallest heart on the Heart to Heart Punch and cut it in half to make the eyes and then added the smallest circle from the Owl Builder Punch.  I also used Sahara Sand card stock instead of Going Gray because it is retired and I don’t have any on hand.  So I sponged the edges of the Sahara Sand card stock using Basic Gray so that it blended in better.

My gift bag is one that I purchased from Spotlight.  I used all the same colours and papers – I just left the happy birthday off the punched bear.  I used the 1-3/4″ Circle punch for the balloons and added the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch to create the end of the balloon.  I wrapped the end of the balloon with Whisper White Bakers Twine and attached it behind the bear’s “hand”.  I used the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet to make the “Happy Birthday and also to add the number 2 to the balloons.

Here is  a close up of that cute little bear.

And here is the bag and the card together.

I love making gift bags to match my cards and I think this one is so cute.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
