Children's Birthday Cards`



Hello All You Crafty People!

Today it is my day to share a creation as a member of the Design Team at 

Our theme this week is "Children's Birthday" and it could not have come at a better time!  My sweet granddaughter Aubrey will turn 5 years old in early May and I wanted to create a couple of cards just for her.

 Yes, I created two cards to share!
Here is the first one!

My two oldest Granddaughters love  the LaLaLoopsey dolls and t.v. show and during a recent visit, I got to play dolls with them!  I knew she would love having a card with a LaLaLoopsey on it!
Thankfully, someone from one of the Silhouette groups I belong to shared this file with me.
It is a print and cut, meaning you print the picture on the computer then take it to your Cameo for cutting around it.  
I added a "loopy" frame and also a background layer that I embossed.
LaLaLoopsey is elevated with foam squares for some dimension.
My original plan was to put her on an Action Wobble so she could
"dance" - but she was not wide enough to accommodate a wobble behind her!  
I accented her crown with a little gem for some sparkle!
I decided to add a colorful layer to the inside of the card with a little bit 
of ribbon to "jazz it up"!
This shows the dimension from the foam squares both under the doll and under the embossed layer.
One final look at the card!

Now allow me to share "Card Number Two" for Aubrey!
During our recent visit, we took a fun trip to the Children's Museum. My granddaughter was enjoying playing with a toy owl while we were there - and I told her maybe Grandma could get her one of her own sometime.
I could not find the EXACT owl but I did manage to purchase and send one and I wanted a card to represent that owl.

Again, the owl and the branch were cut using my Silhouette with two separate files from their store. This time the owl was large enough to put it on a Action Wobble, so he teeters back and forth on the branch.
I inked all the edges and folded the leaves to give them some shape and dimension.

For the interior of the card, I used the Silhouette sparkly gel pens again to write the
sentiment.  
"For Aubrey" is also written with the same sparkly gel pen on the front, again,
using the Silhouette! I LOVE this feature! 
Here is the soon to be birthday girl during my last visit!  I only wish I could celebrate with her on her actual birthday!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do hope you will consider making a project and linking up to the Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge this week!  Head HERE to do so!
