Turning 1

A special little boy is turning one today so I made this colourful card to celebrate his big day.

I used By the Numbers Stamps and Die-namics from My Favorite Things and the fun layout from Cardabilities #59 sketch.


The Layered Labels Die-namics were perfect for layering the sentiment and creating a larger focal point. Then I jazzed it up thanks to the Star STAX Die-namics and the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. The number "1" was cut out of cork and I used patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Playdate collection paired with Red Hot, Sour Apple, Kraft, and Sweet Tooth card stocks.

On the inside I combined a couple more words from By the Numbers Stamps and Die-namics to create the sentiment then I mimicked the flags on the front. The Red Hot half circle was cut out with one of the smaller sizes from the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics.

Happy Birthday Jonah!!!

Here are the Die-namics I used:
