Happy First Birthday

Today I have the card I made for my granddaughter's first birthday.  I found this card on Kim Score's blog here about two years ago and bookmarked it for future use.  I thought this would be perfect for a first birthday.

Card with envelope
It is not an exact CASE as I used different colors and designer paper but I followed her directions to a tee.  The head even wobbles back and forth like Kim's.  I won't go into every detail about the card because her blog has good instructions.  Listed below are all the products used to make this card.  Whenever I have occasion to give Emma a card I create a poem especially for her for the inside that comes from her grandpa and me.  For this poem, I typed it on the computer, printed it out on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with one of the Labels Framelits.  It's fun and something you can't buy at the store.  Please let me know if you have any questions about the card.  And if you get a chance, check out Kim's blog.  She does some great punch art and cards.  Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
