My upline LeeAnn was kind enough to lend me her Itty Bitty Backgrounds and Pocket Silhouettes stamp sets so I could create this card. I used chocolate chip and barely banana cardstock, and chocolate chip, so saffron, summer sun, and more mustard ink. Thanks for looking!
What better birthday card for a one year old than Elmo? I was inspired by this card to try my own Elmo card. It's a very easy card to put together. Using the large scallop circle die for the Big Shot, I folded a piece of real red paper and put the fold just under one side of the circle to make the card base. To make the eyes, use the 1 3/8" circle punch and going gray cardstock, 1 1/4" circle punch and whisper white cardstock, and the 1/2" circle punch and basic black cardstock. The nose is punched out of more mustard using the 1 3/4" circle punch and popped up with dimensionals. Then I cut a 3 1/2" circle in half to make the mouth. Have a great day!
I just love making sets of cards for someone to give as a gift. It's so much fun to see everything come together and know that the person giving the gift is very happy with what I have made. Thanks for looking!
So if I may toot my own horn a bit here, I think these clear envelope brag books turned out pretty well for my first attempt :) These were given as Mother's day gifts and can be easily put in a purse to show off family anytime. The tutorial can be found here.
