Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making a Charcoal Barbecue Grill Birthday Card for my son’s 30th birthday.
Above is a screenshot of Cricut Design Space. I made extra circles and smoke just in case I mess up (oh yeah, it happens, lol).
Here is the inspiration for my card – the above card is for “Dad,” but obviously, since I’m making this card for my son, I’m going to customize it.
These are the cutout pieces. I used Close To My Heart cardstock in Ruby, Black, White Daisy, Pacifica, Whisper, and Black Glitter.
The font for the numbers is Brittanic Bold (one of my system fonts) and the sentiment font is Cricut Alphabet.
The steam is from the Cricut ‘Wall Decor and More’ cartridge. The grill legs are stretched rectangles welded to circles.
I used the CTMH watercolors and swirled a little and splattered a little – so, so, so much fun!!!!
I decided I needed some grass, so I used a piece of CTMH Willow cardstock, cut a curve, and inked the edge.
This is the grill piece. I cut the glitter circle in half and hinged it with a silver brad, cut the smoke pieces apart and glued them inside.
I put a brad in the left grill leg, attached the legs to the grill body, added the handle to the top, and attached the completed grill to the top layer.
Next I attached the grill piece to the card base. If I were to do this card again, I would make the base white – I did not like the red with this card. I was trying to do a Chicago Cubs color combination . . . yeah . . . would’ve looked better in white.
Here’s the finished card. I love all of it except the red. Hey, they don’t always come out the way I expect.
Hey, if you’d like to see some of my other projects, check out my Instagram and Pinterest board, and I would LOVE it if you would follow me.
As always, I’m Livin’ the Moments . . .
