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

Congratulations to your grandchild. The video is very funny, it's a very funny and cute record! :) I wish the best of luck and love to the whole family! Hugs, RaquelReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
What a cute card. Can't believe he's one already, time flies! I had to laugh when big brother helped blow out the candle and big sister helped put his hand to his mouth :) Thanks so much for linking up at the Unlimited Link Party 82. Shared.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I know, time really flies. They are all growing up so fast. Yes, the kids were definitely "helpers". They were really anxious to eat the cake; they don't get treats like that too much and waited all day to enjoy a piece themselves.Delete
What a cute birthday card! I never did get any Crafty Secret stamps but really like the vintage feel of them!ReplyDelete
And how cute little Elisha was with his cake, he surely enjoyed it after having a taste! You and your hubby are such wonderful grandparents!
Thank you. I bought a ton of Crafty Secret stamps, they definitely will never go out of style because they are vintage. Yes, he loved the cake once he tried it. And thanks for saying that about our grand parenting. It's so important to me to be a good grandparent.Delete
This is so sweet! I absolutely love the card you made for him. It's perfect! The picture of him eating cake is adorable!ReplyDelete
That is a very sweet card you made for him! A Very Happy Birthday to baby Elisha!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
What an adorable little guy and such an appropriate card!ReplyDelete
oh what a cutie!! these are the good old days, for sure. and that card is a show-stopper.ReplyDelete
Aw, that is an adorable card for an equally adorable grandson! I love seeing those cake smeared faces... my oldest was never like that and would not eat his birthday cake until I cut it into bite sized pieces and gave him a fork. It was hilarious and such a huge change from his cousin who two weeks prior had celebrated his 1st birthday as well and needed a full on bath afterwards!ReplyDelete
Thank you! They all react differently for sure.Delete
What a cute card and I love the first try of cake too! We gave the boys their first cake on their first birthdays as well, it was adorably messy! :)ReplyDelete
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend :)
