12th Birthday Card - Number of Years

Brrrrrr!!!! We have REALLY cold day today in our corner of the country today. The sun is out but I'm not sure it's carrying any warmth! So that means another indoor day with the kids.... While they were watching a movie I managed to get 10 mins alone in my study to create a card for my nephew who is turning 12 next week. He is an avid Fremantle Dockers fan (Go Freo!) so I wanted to make him a card he'd love. Plus I didn't have a whole lot of time!

It was fairly simple to make, here is a list of what I've used.
Card base - Elegant Eggplant cardstock 15cm x 21cm scored in half.
Layer 1 - Elegant Eggplant DSP cut to 10cm x 14.5cm (after I had positioned the cardstock to create a V pattern)
Layer 2 - Vellum cut to 9.5cm x 15cm. Adhered with glue dots in each corner, disguised with candy dots.

Stamp set used is Number of Years with the numbers and words stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink on Whisper White cardstock. I embossed the word Birthday on Elegant Eggplant cardstock with white embossing powder.

The Big Shot accessories I have used are the Lots of Labels Framelits and the banner was cut out from the Large Numbers Framelits die.

All of these items are available from Stampin' Up! Contact me if you would like to know anything about this awesome company or getting your hands on some amazing products!

Til next time,
Nicole x
