Ethan’s Birthday Card

June 14, 2014

Ethan's-8th-BD-cardMy grandson Ethan celebrated his 8th birthday on Thursday and this is the card I made for him.  Ethan and my husband are both learning the guitar together and they spend lots of time together “jamming”!  Anyway we all got together and bought him an amplifier to go onto his Accoustic Guitar.  I’m not sure how his family is going to cope with the extra volume when he practices but he was so excited to receive this present.

Anyway I decided to make him a guitar themed card.  So I went to my favourite place for inspiration – Pinterest – and found this great card to case .  It was originally posted on Splitcoast Stampers.  Ethans-8th-B'day-card I used Basic Black for my card base and added the guitar shape which I hand cut from So Saffron card.  I used various Circle Framelits to create the central “hole”, the shadow shape on the right is cut using the smallest Oval Framelit and the part at the bottom where the strings start is the the bottom part of the Artisan Punch with a narrow strip of Basic Black card on top.  I used the smallest circle punch on the Owl Punch to create the place where the strings begin.  I used Linen Thread to represent the strings.

Ethan's-8th-Birthday-cardInside the card I put My Digital Studio to good use.  I used the Extreme Elements Stamp Brush Set Digital Download to create the background  (colours – Soft Suede and Crumb Cake)  I added the Extreme Guitar Stamp Brush Set Digital Download in Early Expresso over the top.  The greeting is from the Cake and Ice cream Stamp Brush Set Digital Download and is also coloured with Early Expresso.  I printed the images onto Whisper White card on my home printer and cut it to fit inside the card.

Ethan really like his card and even tried to play the strings!  It’s always so nice when you know that your hard work is appreciated.

I’m so glad he had a wonderful birthday and even better he got the present he wanted.   In fact he was lucky enough to get enough money from his aunt and great grandparents to buy himself a microphone.  I’m sure there will be many concert performances now!!

Bye for now,

Kris
