Birthday Celebrations

A couple of weeks ago my Nephew celebrated his 3rd birthday.  For his birthday party we all visited Santa Clause on the Steam Train at Nene Valley in Northampton.  A super day was had by all (even the adults).  The snow arrived just in time to make the event magical and my Nephew got to see Thomas the Tank Engine at the station which was even more exciting than getting to see Father Christmas himself!

I was so busy that week designing the new workshop list as well as preparing the Kit Clubs that my lovely husband, Matthew stepped in and created this card for us to send to the Birthday boy!   Now that he has realised what he has done he regrets the fact that he has shown his creative side as this means that I can call on his talents more often!  Hope you like it!

I drew a template for the card and he drew around this onto a piece of 12x12 cardstock which had been folded in half.  The card folds at the top (across the top part of the wing).  The propellers are stuck to the front of the card with double sided tape and then the brad is added but it does not actually hold anything in place as the tape does that. 

As the card is created from a piece of folded 12x12 cardstock we had to wrap the card in brown paper instead of putting it into an envelope but I am sure that it would fit into an A5 envelope if we had had one to hand.

Paper: The Girls Paperie
Alphabet letter stickers: Adorn it
Epoxy Brads: Stemma from Masterpiece Studios
If you would like the template for the card then drop me an 
e-mail and I will forward a pdf version.
