Little Trucks Birthday Tag

November 8, 2009

Good Morning ~ My youngest started pre school this year & most of the kids’ birthdays are at the beginning of the school year so he has gotten invited to quite a few.  Today he went to another one & we made a truck tag for his present.  It is made with a retired set but I have kept it with a nephew that is young & Graham still being young it can be used for a lot of things.

Little Trucks Birthday Tag

We skipped the card on this present & just made a tag with the birthday wishes on the back.   I did mat it on Whisper White  card stock.  I got the layout from the “Just Us Girls” challenge.  They have it set up as a card but I just made it smaller & made a tag out of it.  It was quick, cute & fun for a 4 year old birthday boy.  He loves 4 wheelers & skate boards but did not have anything like that.  He does like the dirt & trucks so thought this would work well.  I stamped the gates & truck, colored them with aqua painters & re inkers.  I then cut them all out & popped the gates on with dimensionals.  I then put a strip of black at the bottom & cut small strips of white for the white line of the road at the bottom.  I stamped the verse in black in the upper right hand corner.  I mounted the whole tag on a piece of whisper white card stock & stamped a verse on the back & signed it back there too. Below is a picture of the tag on the present.  I just ran some ribbon thru the tag & tied it to one of the bow loops.

      I have never done a challenge before & I needed a quick card & came across this on Mindless Creativity & loved her card. As you can see it did not turn out to be a card because I ran out of time. Thanks for checking it out & for the comment… You are my first comment. I just started my blog a month ago! So Thank You
      Have a Great Evening

      I think I will. I scanned thru some old ones & like them. Especially now that I have to post every day or at least as much as I can. I was a card maker because I need a card for something. I love it but didn’t just make some thing… I’m hoping these challenges will help me come out of the box. Thanks again for looking
