Today I’m sharing a sweet birthday card to celebrate a first birthday.

I thought it would be fun to use the word ‘first’ instead of the number ‘1’ across my card.

I die cut the letters using the Knightly LC Large Alpha die set. I cut them 3 times and added copic colours to the top layer, keeping the outline white and only one layer.

On my card base, I adhered the a white frame, using the Gallery #7 die set. I then adhered the letters across the centre of the card.

As this is a first birthday, I decided to just have one critter on my card. I stamped a bear from the Word Buddies Woodland stamp set and coloured with copic markers. I also added a hat and balloon from the Word Buddies Jungle stamp set, and a cake from the Party on the Farm stamp set.

Before adhering the images, I stamped a sentiment from the Party on the Farm stamp set.

I then die cut the images and adhered them to the card. I used foam tape behind the bear for dimension.
