Transformers Birthday Card

Alexa was invited to her very first birthday party away from our social circle – a big milestone for our “little” girl who is getting so grown up!

Cam turns 4 this week and he invited some day care friends, including Alexa, to his ‘dress-up as a movie character’ birthday party.  Alexa has a fabulous Peppa Pig costume and although technically a stretch on the movie theme, Peppa came out to play!  The party was lovely – bouncy castle, face painting & a checkerboard Turbo cake that was a definite labour of love from the kitchen of someone very talented.  The day care Mums got a chance to meet & greet (rather than wave & dash, as is usually the case on drop off / pick up) and the kids had a (sugar enhanced) blast.

When I RSVP’d, I found out that Cam would be dressed as Optimus Prime from Transformers.  This gave me a great theme for the birthday card & present.  We found an awesome Transformers “lift the flap” t-shirt for a present and of course, I made a Transformers card to go with it.

The design: Punch art was too ambitious and I don’t have an Undefined Stamp Carving Kit (but if you do, see a great carved Transformer image by Melanie Hill here).   So I decided on a computer printed Transformers logo and “Happy Birthday” in Transformers font.  I often download new/interesting/quirky/relevant fonts to match my projects – is my favourite go-to website for all my font needs.

This is the final result – tying in Cam’s name (using the logo as the “A”) and keeping it suitably dark & mysterious.  Happy Birthday Cam, we loved sharing your special day with you & your family.  Kelly & Alexa x
