Ethan’s Birthday

June 13, 2013

My grandson Ethan turned 7 yesterday and we celebrated by having an afternoon tea.  My Mum and Dad, my two daughters and the six grandchildren had a lovely afternoon, enjoying a cuppa and piece or cake.

001I had some kits left over from one of my classes and decided to use it to make Ethan’s birthday card.   I embossed Whisper White card using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Basic Black card.  The Pacific Point Striped Designer Series Paper and the Real Red Striped Designer Series Paper are attached to Basic Black card and then the card front.  I inked the wheel section of the digger using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and the lower half of the cabin using a Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped onto the Whisper White card.  I stamped the wheels onto scrap Whisper White card using Jet Black Stazon ink and cut them out.  I pierced holes in the centres of the rollers of the wheels, inserted Mini Silver Brads and then attached it over the stamped wheels using Dimenionals.  I stamped the top section of the cabin and the arms of the digger onto scrap Whisper White card four times using Real Red ink.  I cut each part out separately, pierced holes and inserted Mini Silver Brads so the arm of the digger can be moved.  I attached the top half of the cabin over the stamped image using dimensionals.002

Inside the card I attached Pumpkin Pie Striped Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card and then to the lower edge of Whisper White card.  I inked the presents using Real Red, Pacific Point and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped onto scrap card, repeating until I had five images.  I cut them out and attached them to the card above the Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the greeting from the Bring on the Cake stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink and coloured the “7” using a Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker. 

My grandson loved the card and got really excited when he realised the arm of the digger moved.  It is so nice to know that your handiwork is appreciated.

Bye for now, Kris.

    What boy wouldn’t like a card with moving parts. Ethan would have loved it!
