That's right, my oldest son turned fourteen today. I cannot believe it! Where has the time gone?
So, in honour of his birthday, I'm sharing the card that I made for him (I'll be giving it to him tonight) and the layout I made of his party last Saturday.
First up, the card...
I made the card using one of the sketches for the Studio Calico's NSD challenges:
I also made it for the NSD By the Numbers Challenge as well. I used Crate Paper patterned paper and Papertrey Ink cardstock (vintage cream), stamps (Stylish Sentiments: Birthday) and dies (Get a Handle on it, Tag Sale #5). The numbers are Pink Paislee that I inked with my A Muse Studio Slate ink to change them from brown to grey.
For my card, I used this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Beyond paper with impression plates. I took some orange hockey tape and adhered it to come cardstock, which I ran through my Big Shot with my Simple Stripes IP. It's subtle, but you can see the stripes on the banner (on the right).
I also used one of the sketches for the Studio Calico's NSD challenges to create my layout.
Once again, I used Crate Paper patterned paper and the MIM technique with the same orange hockey tape. I also diecut my letters from the hockey tape using my PTI Headline Alphabet dies.
I used my new PTI Big Ticket Basics stamps and dies.
As well as my PTI star border die.
Thanks for looking!
