Happy Birthday Noah
Today my grandson Noah celebrates his 7th birthday. He shares his birthday with my mother-in-law (his great grandmother) and my sister-in-law (his great aunt) – busy day! To celebrate his birthday his Mum and Dad had the family over for breakfast. We had such a lovely time.
This is the card that I made for Noah which is cased from the very talented Linda Higgins. It uses the Circle Thinlet Die as the card base. I added an additional flap so that I could hide the message panel. The colours used are Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Basic Black, Marina Mist and Soft Suede. I used various Circle Framelit Dies to create the eyes and the mouth, the Word Window Punch for the arms and a circle punch for the hair and the little black buttons on his overalls. Inside the card I created a panel and added another little minion, holding a balloon. The balloon is from the Sketched Birthday stamp set and is stamped using Real Red ink. The eyes on this little minion were punched using the Bird Builder Punch. I used the Owl Builder Punch to create the arms and the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to create the hands. The greeting on the back of the circle is from the Bring on the Cake stamp set which I punched using the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle. The greeting is stamped in Real Red ink and I used a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to colour in the number 7. Of course you can’t give a gift without having a bag for it to do in, so using the card as inspiration I created a larger Minion for the front of the bag. The Daffodil Delight card is half an A4 sheet. I used several Circle Framelit Dies for the eyes and hair, hand cut the overalls and added a pocket. I hand cut the arms and used cut down a 3/4″ Scallop Circle to create the hands. The greeting along the bottom is from the Sketched Birthday stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede. I think my grandson was happy with the card and bag and of course, more importantly what was inside.
Hope you are inspired to create some punch art of your own.
Bye for now,
