Hi, it was my niece’s sweet 16th birthday during the week. (I can’t believe it! Where does the time go?) I wanted to make her a card which was a little more sophisticated and since I had the gorgeous Springtime Foils Specialty DSP still out, it seemed like the perfect choice. I actually CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) myself for this design. When I made the card I shared yesterday, I loved it so much, I used it as inspiration for Abbey’s birthday card.
There are some subtle changes and some more obvious changes. For example, I trimmed the coloured panel and centred it on the base card so you could see a strip of white on each side. Instead of using a circle for the sentiment, I decided to go for a heart upon which I layered the number “16”. I tied some Gold Metallic Thread around the card to finish it off.
Here’s the card…
This card illustrates one of the things I love about card making. You can use the same materials and create so many different cards. Just imagine how many different cards you can come up with when you vary the colour, design, orientation, sentiment, and the embellishments. The scope is enormous! Then you really start to get value for money from each and every product you buy.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
