I had a very productive weekend in the ‘Craft Department’ – it’s great when the creative juices flow!
Our neighbours youngest turned 5 over the weekend and started school today – a good day was had :). He’s really into his Lego Ninjago but I couldn’t find any punch art examples to create for his card so I went with just blocks.
It’s a similar style to the one I made for my nephew last month – check here for the measurements
I wanted to have the number on the front of the card along with the Happy Birthday so I cut die cut the sentiment twice using narrow strips of Basic Black that cut the ‘Happy’ and a small part of the Birthday so I could trim off the joining letters. I then ran it through a second time cutting the ‘Birthday’ and a small part of the Happy. To make it easier to adhere I added the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to the Basic Black prior to cutting out.
The ‘5’ in adhered with dimensionals and the ‘TH’ is cut with the retired Little Numbers dies.
These cards are simple to make but look really effective – perfect for all ages.
