A Pumpkin Birthday

Today is my grandson, Jacob's, 4th birthday!  So when thinking about making him a special card, I happened upon an idea posted by another demo (thanks, Janet Wakeland!) using the September Paper Pumpkin ingredients.  Although her card was very different from my final version, I appreciated the sharing of ideas that got my juices flowing.

And here it is:
Yes, that's a test tube attached to the front of the card!  If you recall, last month's Paper Pumpkin contained 16 test tubes (along with a ton of other stuff) to make Halloween treats.  I put 12 of mine together for work buddies, but had a few sitting on my desk.  When I saw Jen's card, my brain couldn't "un-see" it, and thus, my card was born.

A mix of sets pulled this together; Marquee Messages worked well with Number of Years (and the matching framelits - Large Numbers).  I started by stamping in Pacific Point and Real Red; the number was stamped in Cucumber Crush and cut with the framelit.  Before adhering it, I ran my Whisper White card stock through my Big Shot with the Lucky Stars embossing folder.

Then it was time to attach the test tube filled with birthday candles (4 of them, of course!) in matching colors!

I adhered the Cucumber Crush strip to the white layer, and punched two holes, threading some Basic Black Bakers Twine through and creating a loop for the test tube.  Then I simply tied it in the back and adhered the whole thing to a Basic Black layer, and then to the Cucumber Crush card base.

It still needed something...

Of course!  A sprinkling of Crushed Curry stars, punched with the Confetti Stars Border Punch!  Perfect!  (and I added a few left over stars to the test tube, so it's almost like a "shaker card".

A fun card for my adorable grandson (and I heard from his mommy this morning that he loves his card with the candles!).  (heart)

Happy, happy 4th Birthday, Jakie!  Grammy loves you!
