Happy Birthday Ava

April 1, 2013

My youngest granddaughter celebrated her 3rd birthday yesterday.  She had to share the excitement of her party with the Easter Bunny but I think that only added to the fun.  All my grandchildren love Hoot and Hooterbell from the ABC TV Children;s show Giggle & Hoot but Ava particularly so.  I found a card which was created by Stasia here and recreated the owl on my card.  Thanks Stasia for the inspiration.

017I started by embossing Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder before attaching it to scored and folded Chocolate Chip card.  I punched one long edge of a narrow strip of Chocolate Chip card using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, attached it to the back of Pink Pirouette Polka Dot Designer Series Paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack and then to the card front.  I punched  a 2-1/2″ Circle from Pretty in Pink card and punched out a small section using the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.  I punched a 1-3/4″ Circle from Pink Pirouette card.  I punched two petals from Pretty in Pink card using the Blossom Petals Builder Punch and attached them behind the Pink Pirouette Circle.  The circle and petals were then attached to the lower part of the 2-1/2″ circle.  I trimmed the Pink Pirouette circle to match the bottom of the Pretty in Pink one.  I punched the nose from Pumpkin Pie card using the Small Heart Punch.  The feet are made using the same Small Heart punch and Pumpkin Pie card.  The eyes were created from Whisper White card using the largest circle on the Owl Builder Punch.  The centres of the eyes are punched from Basic Black card using the Cupcake Builder Punch.  I made the little bow in her hair using the Small Heart Punch and Regal Rose card.  I added a Large Rhinestone Basic Jewel to cover the join in the hearts.  I stamped “happy Birthday wishes” from the Petite Pairs Stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White card and punched it using the Large Oval Punch.  I attached the greeting to a Chocolate Chip Scallop Oval and then the card front using dimensionals.

Ava loved it and knew straight away it was a birdie but she took some convincing it was Hooterbell.   I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
