Baby Shark 1st Birthday

I wanted to share a card I made for my grandbaby's 1st birthday...
My pictures were taken in my son Noah's van!  I had forgotten to photograph the card until I was on the way to give this to my little man, so I used the dashboard of the van for my photo shoot(this was shot at a red light😄)!!  Gabriel LOVES the Baby Shark video, so I chose to make him a baby shark card.  The baby shark in the video is yellow, so the shark on the card had to be yellow.  I used the Lawn Fawn Duh-Nuh stamp/die set for the shark.  Duh-Nuh...it took me a bit to figure that one out.  Duh is a word I use at my stupidity...like not taking a picture of the card before on the way to give it away!  BUT, when you put the Duh together with the Nuh...it's...JAWS!!  DUH!!  
Anyhow...die cut, colored, layered  and adhered the shark to the penny behind the die cut slider, which was made with a die also from Lawn Fawn.  I decided after my last slider card, to buy a set of dies that are MADE to make slider cards, rather than make my own...life's too short!  The waves were done with a Simon Says Stamp Waves background stamp, the discontinued "happy birthday" is Jumbled Happy Birthday by Poppy Stamps, bent after layering to kind of follow the waves.  The "st" is Papertrey Ink and the "1" is Simon Simple Numbers(retired too, it would seem).  I just realized the "Happy 1st" should have been a tad more to the left...oh well...perfection is highly overrated?!  You get the idea, right?!  Here's my beautiful little guy at the beach with his shark trunks...he is such a sweet boy...he brings such joy to my life...
Here's a close up...
and here's a video showing the baby shark moving back and forth...
...a penny under the image you're trying to slide is perfect!!  
This card was fun...love to make cards that are meaningful, for my family!
Thanks so much for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. Love it Lisa. I'm sure your Grandson was all smiles when you gave it to him. For what it's worth, the Happy 1st looks perfectly fine just as it is.
