... I've had another go at my niece's 10th birthday card. I like the one I made earlier, but it is a bit small and subtle. I think that when you go into double figures you need to be loud and proud about it. So I had a bit of a think and came up with another age card for this week's OLW challenge of ages being hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink.
Stamps: Elusive Images - Big Flowers; Hobby Art - Happy Birthday
Inks: Memento - Rose Bud; Distress - Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar
Pens: Promarkers - various
Accessories: Ribbon from stash
This time the card is anything but subtle!!! It's A5 in size. I found some number templates which I over stamped with these wonderful flowers, designed by Glenda Waterworth, and coloured the flowers with Promarkers. I found these lovely ribbons in my ribbon box and they matched the colour of the flowers. I added some interest to the card by inking the edges with Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar. Finally, using my stamp-a-ma-jig (Stampin' Up!) I positioned the birthday greeting. Result - really pleased with this card. I think it's suitably big and bright for a 10th birthday!
I know I went into my craft room to make Christmas cards, but this idea wouldn't budge - so I had to make it. Christmas cards tomorrow!!!
