... Good morning! I hope everyone is okay and coping with the wintery weather we're having. I made this card on Monday - needed to get it in the post to get to Xander on time. It's a birthday card for my nephew's son:
Stamps: Visible Image - Set the Tone, Happy Birthday, Accessorize; Carabelle Studio - Number '1'
Inks: Gina K - Soft Stone; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: Gina K - Master Layouts 2
Accessories: White & Black Card; Clear Embossing Powder; Copic Markers
I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:
AAA Birthday - AAAB#47 where they want us to have stripes and/or dots
Inkspirational - INK#285 - where they have a word prompt to use 'Numbers'
Just Us Girls - JUGS#670 - their word prompt is 'Rainbow'
Seize the Birthday - STB#257 - the toppings option is to 'make a card for a child'
Xander is 11 - he's at the age where it's so hard to know what to make for him. As I don't know his favourite football team, I decided to concentrate on his age. I used my MISTI to stamp the number 1 twice onto white card, removed it from the MISTI and did rainbow colouring down each number. I restamped and embossed the image with clear powder. I then fussy cut each number out and edged with a black marker. I die cut a stitched-edge panel of white card and stamped the dotty/grungy background in soft grey and added a birthday greeting below. I used dimensional pads to adhere the numbers and then layered the piece onto black card and added to the front of an A2 white notecard. Inside, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel I stamped a bold birthday greeting and added a sweet birthday cupcake. I coloured the cake case in rainbow order to match the numbers on the front of the card.
It was fun making this card. And the best way to spend a very wet and windy Monday morning - safe inside my craft room.
