I don’t always make a sketch, but this time I had an idea while I was watching tv so I grabbed one of the many notebooks I have.
When I had time to make the card, I grabbed some papers I thought would be a fun color palette for a 2-year-old. Plus, I knew we were going to “Jumpin Up” for the party: a bright primary colored place with lots of jumpy structures.
I played with the colors a little. I originally thought I’d use the light blue circle on the right side. But when I tried the green, it really made the yellow stand out.
The silver is washi tape from S.E.I. and the papers are from a pad I’ve had for ages. I traced the number from a chipboard number I got with a set from JoAnne’s long ago.
Here’s the final product. And a blurry picture of the birthday boy at play
He’s 2. I shouldn’t expect him to be able to stand still on his birthday, should I?
