PARTY PANTS 21ST!

I needed to make a 21st card for Josh to give to a friend.  It needed to be quick.  I didn’t have a lot of time.  I had just received the Large Numbers Framelits so I thought this might be just the thing.  Plus I received the Sale-A-Bration ‘Party Pants’ set.  I love these little sentiments in this set.

Here is the card for you.

21st

I have used some of ‘It’s My Party’ Paper Stack. I have used so much of these papers. There is 48 12″x12″ sheets in the pack.  Not just some bright party type papers but some neutral Sahara Sand and black and white sheets.  Very versatile I think. 🙂

I cut the 21 from the black DSP piece and then added a piece of Real Red card behind it.  I matted it all on some Whisper White and then a Black card base.  The sentiment from ‘Party Pants’ is cut from the ‘Tags and Labels’ Framelits and matted on Real Red card frame.  I looped up some Silver Cord to add behind the sentiment.  Josh thought it was cool as it looked like barbed wire!!!  🙂

So a quick masculine 21st card was made in record time!

Thanks for visiting today.

HAPPY 21ST WITH CELEBRATE TODAY!!

Yesterday was my niece’s 21st Birthday.  I can now show you her card since it is safely delivered. The pressure was on to do something different – and spectacular.  I came across this Pop Out Swing card by Julie Davison.  You can see that card HERE and the instructions are there too for you to make your own.

Here is my card using ‘Celebrate Today’ and the Balloon framelits.

It took a little bit until I was happy enough with the swing and I think it is a card that you personally give to someone to show them how it works rather than sending it them in the mail.

Here is the front of the card.  The greeting was cut using the ‘Project Life – Cards and Labels’ die. A little glimmer always goes down well on a card too. 🙂  I cut the square from the centre of the front of the card using the Squares Framelits.

You can’t tell by the photo but I heat embossed the 21st with silver embossing powder.  It gave it a nice shine. The 21st is from the set ‘Memorable Moments’ (soon to be retiring – have you got that set yet???).

I think it was well-received.  Happy 21st Megan. x

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend,
