Today is my great niece's first birthday. (Happy birthday Mia). I don't get the chance to make cards for children too often and this punch art card was so much fun to do. It is based on the Stampin' Royalty #116 Sketch Challenge. My little punch art lion is one of Jackie Topa's cute critters.
The card base is Very Vanilla card stock. I added a layer of Wild Wasabi card stock and then a layer of Just Add Cake
designer paper. Another piece of Wild Wasabi card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Adorning Accents Edgelits die. I attached another piece of the designer paper to that layer. The sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card stock which was then matted with Poppy Parade card stock. A Wild Wasabi glimmer brad was added. This was popped up on the front with dimensionals. I punched out a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock with the 2-1/2" Circle punch and attached it to the designer paper. A variety of punches were used to make the lion from Soft Suede, So Saffron and Basic Black card stocks. The head was then attached to the Wild Wasabi circle with dimensionals. I'm not sure what one year old children like in the way of cards. Hopefully she'll enjoy the colors at least. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Make every moment count - find some time for fun and creating.
