Fire Truck Birthday Fun!


Hello there!  This fun, kid-friendly card qualifies for my goddess card this week over at The Stampin' Royalty weekly challenge blog.  This week we have an easy breezy challenge; make anything using patterned paper.  Grab your provisions, create something fabulous, and head on over to the Stampin' Royalty to link it up.


Tate's best buddy from school Greyson, had a fireman themed birthday party.  Tate was so excited to go since it was his first "friend" party he has attended.  I knew a fire truck card was in order, so I grabbed my paper scraps and went to work.
  • I used a real red rectangle for the body
  • Small strips of silver glimmer paper made the ladder and the bumper, which was rounded using the corner rounder punch.  The center of the tires were punched using a small circle punch.
  • Basic black strips were used as accents, and the tires.

The front of the cab is a rectangle that was snipped on the edge a bit, Greyson turned 3, so that was a perfect number for the fire truck.


Cute banners that were stamped with the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and die cut with the matching bitty banners framelits were attached to a toothpick that was glued on with tombo glue.  The fabulous Modern Medley DSP makes a perfect background, and background flag for the fire truck.


Of course, a cutie envelope must be made, so out came my new envelope punch board (item 133774 at my ONLINE STORE).  I love, love this tool, you can make 66 different sizes of envelopes, how awesome is that!  I finished off the envelope with some modern medley DSP, and a real red apothecary accents framelit tag with Greyson's name stamped on it.  Super cute.

 
I love getting creative with party themes, but I really love it when other people do as well.  When we pulled up to Greyson's house, his mom Kelly had little paper flames in all of the front windows!  Kelly saw the idea HERE, then she drew and cut them out by hand, it was so super cute and fit the theme well since the kids were visited by a real fire truck.  Alas, I left my camera at home, so all I have to share is cell phone pictures.
 
Here is Greyson, the birthday boy all ready for the party.

I don't know where I was at, but had I been there, this would NOT have happened!
 
I love to do punch art, I think you pretty much can make anything out of paper, you just have to give it a try, or google it and someone has tried it.  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you are inspired, enjoy!
