Number Cards

Last weekend Rebecca had a birthday party of one of the boys in her class. I had given myself about thirty minutes to create a card, so it couldn't be all too complicated. I rediscovered some of my KI Memories lace cardstock, and coincidentally the number 12 (how old he was turning), was in the right place. So I thought: 'Why not!'

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Lace Cardstock: KI Memories | Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (The Boyfriend) | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames 4 + Birthday Bash Sentiments) | Ink: Stampin'Up (Real Red + Chocolate Chip) | Border Punch: EK Success | Buttons: Creative Café + Basic Grey.

My friend, Beth, her mum is turning eighty on Sunday and she asked me if I could make a birthday card for her. I think when you're turning that age, you deserve a bit of glitter. I initially wanted to do something with gold, but I'm not really a gold person, so I went for silver instead. Because I've been busy with the advent calendar, I had my chipboard numbers out and I still had an extra 8 and 0 left over, which were perfect for this card.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lush) + Amy Butler | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Birthday Bash Sentiments + Fancy Flourishes) | Ink: Stampin'Up (Pretty in Pink) | Pearls: KaiserCraft | Ribbon | Scallop Die: Papertrey Ink | Pinking Scissors | Butterfly Punch: Martha Stewart (Monarch Butterfly) | Glitter: Martha Stewart (Sterling) | Chipboard Numbers: Basic Grey | Doily: Newsagent.

I have one more card with a number, but I won't be showing that one until tomorrow, as it's the card I made for our baby who'll be turning 7 (not much of a baby anymore, but she will always be our little baby).

I wish everyone a splendid weekend!
