Birthday card for boys

Hi, Janja is here with you.
One of my three grandchildren is celebrating his birthday in January. So for the first posting of the new year, I prepared a birthday card.

- CottageCutz dies: Dump Truck, BulldozerFireplace w/ Accessories (gifts)
- craft card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- white cardstock
- colored cardstock
- clear embossing ink pad
- white embossing powder
- heat tool for embossing powder
- cloud stencil
- light blue ink pad
- glue, double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive foam pads

First, I cut the truck and bulldozer out of yellow and gray cardstock.

Then I prepared some gifts from colored cardstock.

Alternatively, you can add hearts instead of gifts, and get a Valentine's Day card.

For the background I used a cloud stencil and a light blue ink pad. I ripped off a craft cardstock and glued it to the bottom.

I took a blank craft card and a white cardstock. I cut the frame out with two square dies. The outside dimensions are: 5 x 5 inches (12,7 x 12,7 cm). The frame width is 1/2 inch.
For the sentiment I used a white embossing powder.

When I cut all the pieces, I started assembling the card. Finally, I added a yellow enamel dot to the sentiment strip.

Have a nice day.
