21st Birthday Cards

Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for your visit. Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!

Our eldest son reached the age of 21 at the end of September and blimey, do I feel old!

Onto the cards – the 21 card was made by printing a large 21 using MS Word and cutting it out.  The balloon paper was in my stash and has been for some time so I draw around the now cut out 2 and 1 onto the balloon paper and cut them out.  I adhered the numbers onto black card and cut out around both the 2 and 1 together to create the card front.  I then attached this to a smaller black piece of card to create the rear.

The second card, sent by my youngest son, was created using MS Word (again!) for the 21 around the edge in red. The centre was created using a circular die from The Works, cut in red mirri card with ‘Brother’ being cut from the same card, using a Cut and Make mini die.  The two die cut pieces were stuck onto a piece of white card then die cut using a large scalloped circle from a First Edition nesting set.  The card front was then attached to a red base using Dovecraft Premium Textured Cardstock.


See you next time,
