Tractor Birthday

My nephew is turning 2 and tomorrow is the big party. He is all boy and all about tractors and trucks and so forth. My brother has started a collection of Ertl John Deere tractors for him so our gift for him is another addition to his collection. I, of course, had to make a card to match!! I used tractor in the By Land stamp set and inked it with garden green and black markers. I masked the tractor and used a grass stamp I bought from my LSS. For the big tire hub I used the Collage Number 2, punched it out with the 3/4" punch and mounted in on a dimensional. The garden green panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder so all that was left was brads and ribbon to complete it. I also stamped on the envelope with the airplane from the retired Toy Box set and created a banner behind it that reads "so they say it's your birthday". I hand drew the banner around the sentiment. Here is a close up of just the card. I suppose the green is also appropriate since tomorrow is St. Patty's day.
Have a wonderful day!

This card is so very cool! My nephews would love it too. I am from KS, so tractors are HUGE here with the kids. :)

Thanks for sharing it with us!
