My third grandchild Elisha turned one and this is the card I made for him.
The images are from a retired Crafty Secrets set. This company went out of business, which is such a shame, because they sold the sweetest vintage images.
To make the card I glued patterned paper onto a white card base. The baby image and cake were stamped on a separate piece of white card stock, colored, and cut out. I then cut a scalloped frame and white square using Spellbinder's Nestabilities. I glued the white square directly to the patterned paper, but the scalloped frame and baby image were popped up on dimensionals. The candle was stamped directly onto the white square paper, and the cake was glued onto the white square. I used gold "Stickles" for the flame.
The sentiment was stamped onto separate card stock using ink to match the patterned paper. I cut the sentiment out and popped it onto dimensionals.
The balloon was an image in the set, so was the number "1". Once again, the balloon and the number "1" were stamped onto a separate piece of card stock, colored, and cut out. I hand wrote the "st". The balloon was also popped up on dimensionals.
And here is cute little Elisha opening up his card!
And here he is opening up his presents with the help of his mom and two older siblings. He is the third child, so there is nothing he really needs. It's so hard buying presents now, because these kids have everything already! I just purchased him a decor planter for his room and some clothes.
One of our family traditions that we do with each grand child is video tape them enjoying their first piece of cake. None of them have ever had anything like cake before year one, so watching the expressions on their faces is always priceless. Each child's approach and reaction to the cake has been different. Elisha, was slow to get going with his cake, but once he put it in his mouth, he was all in!
And here is the mess his mother had to clean up when he was done! 😄
Have A Great Day! Amy
