2 – 4 – 1 – Two First Birthday Cards For One Special Boy

I was asked to make birthday cards for my friend and her daughter to send to a very special Grandson & Nephew on his first birthday. It’s tough at the moment as they can’t see him up close or cuddle him while we are in lockdown. They wanted something special that would be familiar to him. It’s sometimes a challenge making more than one card for the same recipient, to end up with different cards. In this case all the more so as they both requested the same theme of his favourite show. Another challenge was create familiar images that he would recognise and yet not be exactly the same. I usually list the dies I have used to create my cards but in this case, not all of the dies are listed, especially for the 8″ x 8″ version as I lost count and track of which dies I used during my lengthy process of trial and error. Though I did use dies, there was quite a bit of snipping and reshaping to end up with the desired effect. My friend and her daughter were delighted with the end results and the birthday boy loved them and even recognised some of the characters.
