Fun shaped handmade card idea!
We have lots of great ideas for childrens' birthday cards on the blog, although funnily enough this one was actually made for a 30 year old!
I love making cards that are personalised to the recipient and make them smile or laugh. This was one of those cards. There was a big T-Rex theme - for a 30th birthday! I used a SVG cutting file for this one and my Silhouette to cut it, but you could use a template from the internet. For this one I used:
- Papermilldirect Dark Green Card
- Papermilldirect Christmas Red Card
- Papermilldirect Silver Sparkle Card
- Papermilldirect Plain White Card
- Altenew Label Love stamp set
- Altenew Balloon die
- Barn Door Distress Ink (Available from Papermilldirect)
- T Rex SVG
I cut all the parts out and had fun putting it all together. I put the balloons together by making them double sided, with the wire in the centre. I then wrapped this wire around the trex's tail to make it look like he had the balloons tied to his tail in a very cute way.
I stamped the Happy Birthday label sentiment and placed it in the Trex's hands to add my sentiment to the card.
This gave me a really fun card that make the recipient laugh when he got it!
