My oldest grandchild just turned 8 in June and I realized I forgot to show the card that I made for him. The theme of his party was “sharks” so I had to think out of the box on this one. I checked out Pinterest for a few ideas, then made this one. It is made 100% from Stampin’ Up! products, but there are some retired ones on here!
PUNCH ART BIRTHDAY SHARK
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Bermuda Bay cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- On top is Ombre Bermuda Bay Circles print DSP (retired).
- The shark body is Layering Ovals and 1″ circle punch for fins (both retired), cut from Smoky Slate and Basic White cardstock and trimmed.
- The tail is the Bow punch trimmed (retired).
- The eyes are 1/4″ circle Basic White and 1/8″ circle Basic Black cardstock.
- The hat is punched from Calypso Coral print with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.
- All were popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The hardest to figure out was the mouth, but ended up using the mouth from an jack-o-lantern in the retired stamp set, Sparkly Seasons. Stamped with Basic Gray Ink on Basic White and hand-cut.
- The number 8 from Playful Alphabet Dies and the seaweed from Smooth Sailing Dies were cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock and added to the front.
- Happy Birthday was stamped with Basic Gray Ink on Basic White and cut from the Floral Gallery Die. It was popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A gold Glitter Dot was added to the top of the hat for a little bling!
Isn’t that fun? It was a great match to his party plates and decorations!
