CD Sunday - 'Let's hear it for the boys' - chosen by Pamela

Pamela has given us a good opportunity to make a card to pop in the box for perhaps a husband, son, grandson, nephew etc,. etc,. We never seem to have enough so now is a chance to make at least one.
I have chosen to make one for my Great Nephew Ellis.  Some how it seems very aging to have a Great Nephew.  It sounds like something from a novel .
As you will see from the card this Great Nephew isn't very old yet:

I asked his Grandmother what his special interests are and I was told 'Diggers' etc and suchlike. I had a set of appropriate stitch patterns already on my computer so I chose the one you see and decided to make it into an easel card - just to add a little more interest for him.
My 'CD' part is background card for the image and his nameplate/stopper and for the 'tyre tracks' at the side. It came from 'Big One Backgrounds CD' by La Pashe. For the actual card itself I have used my standby 'sand look alike'  card so that hopefully it adds to the scene.
'ELLIS' and Happy Birthday are die cut using red glitter card and the number 3's are transparent glittery peel off's stuck onto backing card and more glitter card.
It is a wee while until his birthday so it will truly be in my box waiting for his big day.


  1. Ellis is sure to love his digger card Carol great stitching and layout

  2. Perfect for a little one and wonderful stitching as always.

  3. I'm sure that Ellis is going to love this Birthday card Carol. I thought perhaps that the base card was sand paper when I first looked at it.

  4. A great stitched card Carol and by making it an easel card Ellis will be able to see his digger standing proud. I love all the little touches you've added especially the tyre track papers.

  5. A great stitched card, your stitching is always brilliant and I am sure he will love his card,

  6. Great card Carol. Ellis will love it. Addition of the tyre track paper is perfect!! Hugs Wynn xx

  7. Another super card Carol, I'm sure Ellis will be delighted with it. By making it into an easel card it displays the digger so well. I know how much time goes into these stitched cards and can fully appreciate the work involved. Thanks for the fabulous inspiration.
