My son spends every weekend going to 18th birthday parties at the moment, and has a habit of asking me at the last minute to make a card for the birthday boy or girl. This weekend is no exception and this is the card I came up with at short notice. I was inspired by the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2:
and also Darnell’s NBUS challenge no 10 where, as always, she encourages us to use our “Never Before Used Schtuff”. This is one of my favourite challenges at the moment as it makes me think about using up stuff. So my NBUS today is the stitched square die which is by a firm called Gummiapan – I bought a number of dies from “Swedish House” at Event City yesterday and this is one of them.
The paper is from Here is Happy by My Mind’s Eye, the numbers are chipboard which has been gessoed in black then covered in Anita’s Clear Gloss. I also used drops of gloss in the centre of the patterned paper flowers. The small flowers are a Cuttlebug die with black gems in the centre, and the sentiment is by Clearly Besotted from their Sweet Little Sentiments set, stamped in Versamark and embossed in clear powder.
