Alexandra’s 3rd Birthday

Dies R Us Challenge: DRU Challenge #160

The Paper Players: PP522

Today’s card is for our youngest granddaughter celebrating her third birthday. Not a lot of stamping on today’s card but some die cutting, some stenciling and layering on my 5×7 card. My background was created using Simple Stories Fireworks Stencil inked with some GKD powder blue ink. I used my Waffle Flower A2 Layers die to cut out my focal piece and layering cardstocks. Deciding to keep the snowy theme of Anna and Elsa going, I added a Cheery Lynn snowflake cut in cardstock and then again in sparkly paper, adding Concord & 9th double cut numbers dies and my New Simon Says Stamp Chunky Happy die with shadow and outline. My stamped feature is an older rubber mounted Kolette Hall stamp that was probably purchased in the dollar bin at AC Moore many years ago.

My something new for The Paper Players challenge is the SSS Chunky Happy die.

DRU Challenge #160 is an Anything Goes and I used Waffle Flowers A2 layers die as well as Cheery Lynn snowflake die and two others.

Anna & Elsa is wrapping paper that was too small for the present but perfect for this card. Thanks to Gina K’s recent Stamp & Chat on using wrapping paper for cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy Twenty Twenty-one!!

  1. This is super for the 3 year old! If she loves princesses and who doesn’t, will definitely love this card. So pretty!

    1. Thanks, Lisa, you are right about loving the Disney princesses. I included a cut out of Olaf for the back of the card….she’s not quite sure about him though.

  2. What a fabulous card for a 3 year old. She will love it and the bonus is that it works for two challenges.

  3. Oh my, she will love this card…how sweet! I love those Frozen princesses, and your big die makes the card really stand out! Thanks for playing with my “new” challenge this week at the Paper Players!

  4. I think your grand-daughter will be absolutely thrilled with this princess duo on her very special birthday card Gayle – how lovely to be able to create something so personal, my favourite kind of card making. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!

  5. Gayle, this is adorable! I love that big, bold Happy! Thanks so much for joining us at Dies R Us Challenges! Julie, DT member
