Happy Birthday

Sometime ago I was asked to create a card similar to the here, but with a “Digger”!

I did create a couple of cards after I was asked & then promptly sold them to family.  They got in before I could say “not that 003wmb-blogone” as they usually raid my boxes when visiting.

So when I had to re-create another, my first thought was Punch Art as I didn’t want to do the same.  Now, I am not the best at this type of “Art” but I can say I am really happy with this card.  I also did my “Digger” a little smaller as I didn’t want it t take over the whole card, so for that reason, it was a little fiddly, but I got there in the end.

All the measurements are the same as my previously card except for the Digger.  Since the photo has been taken I did type “CAT” & placed it on the card too.  No machinery is quiet complete without that name/brand (I think so anyhow, being a ex-miner).  I even managed to get little ink onto the cab, but hey I call it “coal”!

Body – Cut a piece of Daffodil Delight Card & shape as per the photo.

Cab –  Layer a piece of Silver Foil layered onto a piece of Basic Black &adhere to the body.

002wma-blogEngine –   Score a piece of Basic Black Card & adhere to the Body.

Pump – Cut a small piece of Basic Black & adhere to Body.  Punch a small Basic Black Circle from the Owl Builder Punch, cut in half & adhere to the top of the Pump.

Boom/Arm – As I wanted this to be interactive & moving, I cut 3 pieces of Daffodil Delight into different lengths & put together using Silver Mini Brads.  These are my Pins.

Bucket – I cut a piece of Basic Black Card into a small square, cut it in half at an angle & adhered to the bottom arm.

Shoe – I cut a piece of Basic Black Card, rounded the corners with the Project Life Corner Punch.

Track – I cut a small piece of Silver Foil & adhered across the middle of my Shoe.

Platform/Ring – I cut a small piece of Basic Black Card & adhered to bottom part of Body

To make it look a bit more real, I decided it needed a bit of coal, so I stamped an image from “Work of Art” in Black Memento.

I adhered the Shoes to the card with Adhesive & then popped the Body above them with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I  mentioned, I am not the best at Punch Art, but I do hope you like my version of the Digger.

Until next time Happy Stampin’
