Firefighter Birthday Card

Happy Wednesday afternoon,

Continuing on with my end of Dec. birthday cards today and I have a card that I made for a little guy who turns six a few days after Christmas. He loves all things rescue related. His favorite saying is "I'm going to be a firefighter/paramedic/lifeguard for the rest of my life." We just crack up. Of them all, I think firefighters are his favorite so it was a no brainer to use the uber cute PI Firefighter Boy stamp set for his card.

I wanted to put a fire truck in the background, but didn't have a stamp for that (how that is possible with all my stamps I don't know). I went on line and found this cute vintage fire truck, complete with the dog. Because it's a vintage truck, I colored it with some faded areas instead of bright and shinny red all over.

I didn't use a sketch for this card, just put it together very simply. The images are colored with Copics and the background on the fire truck is sponged with SU blue ink.

Stamps: Pure Innocence Firefighter Boy set by My Favorite Things and Vintage Fire truck digi stamp by JW Illustrations
Paper: SU Marina Mist and Whisper White card stock, X-Press It Blending card stock and SU Parker's Patterns DSP
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU Real Red and Copics
Other: SB Curved Rectangles, blue Smooch, red Stickles, Spica silver glitter pen and clear glitter pen (on the fire suit reflector stripes)

We're going to my guy's holiday party tonight. I bought a new party dress and shoes so it will be fun to get all dressed up.

Have a great evening all,
