My precious granddaughter Alethea turned two last month. I wasn't able to make it to her big family and friends birthday party as it was too close to Atticus' due date and I couldn't make the trip twice. But we did have a smaller, more intimate nuclear family party for her later when I arrived. So this lucky little girl got two birthday parties and two cakes!
As always, I made her a handmade birthday card. I used the same Crafty Secrets set "Birthday Kids" that I used last year (you can see last years card in THIS POST). I think I will use this same set for all my grand children's birthdays. It's just so cute! I love the vintage images and the numbers.
To create my card I first stamped the background with the background image stamp in the set in a light pink. I then put dots of clear Stickles randomly in the background.
The sentiments were stamped directly onto the main image panel in different colors of ink. The little girl was stamped on a separate sheet of card stock and then cut out and framed using Spellbinder's Nestabilities. The cake was also stamped on a separate sheet of card stock, fussy cut, then glued outside the frame.
When the card was complete, I adhered the entire front to a pink card stock base.
And here are some pictures of Alethea's little birthday party with us and a few of her larger party.
Alethea's mom said Alethea was so excited for her big birthday party. She loved helping mom in the kitchen making the cupcakes. She was tickled pink that the party was just for her. She is use to going to birthday parties for other people, but this was the first year she fully understood the party was for her.
Her mom kept Alethea's party much more simple and low key this year (in comparison to last years😊!) because she was 9 months pregnant at the time. They had the party in a local park and this was the table Ashley set up for her.
These are the home made cupcakes mom made for Alethea's first party. Notice her 9 month pregnant belly sticking out on top of the picture? ha ha!
Here Alethea is examining my homemade card. Dad made sure Alethea took time to open and look at the card before opening the gift. He knows how hard I work on those cards!
