A Circus Card for Jack’s 5th Birthday

One of my favourite customers has a grandson named Jack. I’ve been making cards for Jack’s birthdays for three years, now, each one with a different theme. This year it was a circus theme. With the help of my Silhouette Cameo, I created a circus tent card, measuring 8″ x 8″ when closed up and 24″ when opened up all the way–yep, a card that measures two feet across! Who said, “big isn’t better?”

On the inside, there are michievous monkeys, a lion, a tiger and a great big elephant!

I added the stitching with my  trusty white gel pen–it’s those little details that can add impact. The funny clown on the front has a big, shiny, red nose!

Here’s closer look at the elephant with a real feather decorating her head dress and lots of sparkles on her fringed blanket. As always, I coloured everything with my Copic markers and used my dollar store sparkle glue to add some circus bling.

This circus card was really fun to make and to give. I really hope little Jack liked it!!
