Today’s card was made for my next door neighbour’s oldest son, who turned 18 at the weekend. I’ve kept the colours simply and masculine and opted to focus on the age, rather than add an image to this card – after all, it is a landmark birthday, so it’s all about the numbers!
The die cut is by Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette Online store (I also have similar ones by Alaa’K). The side panels were embossed with the Darice Chevrons folder. And, to top it all, I’ve managed to make this card entirely from my leftovers box 🙂
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Bloggers Network – Die Cuts and Embossing
Robyn’s Fetish Challenge – Square Cards
Crafting Musketeers – Monochrome
While I’m here today, I’d also like to let you know that I’ve (finally) claimed my blog on Bloglovin, and have added a button in the side bar for you to click on if you’d like to join my band of followers! I’ve recently swapped from WordPress Reader to Bloglovin as I was having trouble receiving posts for the blogs I was subscribed to – I’ve found Bloglovin really straight forward to use, both as a follower and blogger; it’s all there waiting for me when I get five minutes peace with a cup of coffee 😉
