This card is for a two year old little boy. I hope he likes it.
I started with a card base of Real Red and the rest is either die cut or fussy cut. The only stamping is the sentiment on the banner on the front and the envelope flap. I think these little creatures are so cute….what two year old wouldn’t like these??
The grass and critters on the front are from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, as is the banner. The Fox and banner are cut with dies from the Birthday Friends Framelits. The rabbit and turtle are fussy cut using my Paper Snips Scissors. The striped mat is from the same Designer Series Paper as the animals, as are the balloons on the inside of the card. Actually, all elements of this card, other than the Real Red and Whisper White card stock, are from ONE SHEET of DSP!
The banner is stamped in Real Red with a sentiment from Birthday Delivery Stamp set. The three elements-stamps, dies and DSP, are all in a bundle which lets you save 10% over purchasing them separately (page 69 Annual Catalog). The grass is torn from the DSP and adhered to Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue and trimmed to fit. The fox is also adhered using Liquid Glue.
The banner staff is adhered with Liquid Glue and the ‘banner’ with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Turtle and Rabbit are also attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals, both regular and mini. Liquid Glue adheres the art panel to the striped mat, and the striped mat to the card base.
The inside sentiment is die cut from Real Red card stock using the Happy Birthday Thinlits and adhered to the balloons mat with Liquid Glue. To add just a bit of glitz, I went over all of the die cut with Wink of Stella. The mat is Liquid Glued to the card base.
A fussy cut squirrel adorns the front of the envelope and stamps from the Birthday Delivery stamp set finish the flap in Real Red. The balloon strings are in Early Espresso.
I really like these little creatures for a child birthday.

So cute Julie! Love that those dies cut the images on the designer paper…so much easier for me than fussy cutting is. 🙂
Gotta love dies, if only for the time they save. Thanks, Amy.
Such a fun card. The inside and envelope are perfect too. I’m sure the 2 year old will like it a lot!
Thanks Karen! It was pretty easy really. Of course, a 2 year old will not have a clue what went into making it, but his Mommy will.
