Happy Birthday Abigail

December 16, 2017

I can’t believe my eldest granddaughter is turning 13 today.  It only seems like yesterday, I was rushing to the hospital to have my first cuddle and now she is a teenager!  I might add she is a lovely young lady and both Ron and myself are blessed to have her in our lives.  So a special birthday calls for a little extra effort on my part to create her card.  I layered Calypso Coral card onto scored and folded Thick Whisper White card using temporary adhesive and cut a circle from the centre using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies I removed the Calypso Coral card and layered a piece of Whisper White card.  I used a pencil to mark the circle in the Calypso Coral card onto the Whisper White card and cut a scalloped circle using the same dies, making sure to centre the circle inside the scalloped circle.  I removed the Whisper White card and embossed it using the Basic Polka Dot Embossing FolderThe pieces were all attached back together.  I attached a folded piece of Whisper White card onto the inside of the Thick Whisper White card with the fold on the right hand side.  I stamped the image from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using the Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.  The Whisper White card is layered onto Calypso Coral card and then the front of the inside panel so that the image shows through the circle in the front of the card.  I cut the Happy Birthday thinlit die from Calypso Coral card twice, so that I could cut the Happy and Birthday apart.  I used some retired dies to cut the numbers and letters for 13th, also from Calypso Coral card.  There are layered onto the central panel of the card.  This is a 5″ x 5″ card, so I created an envelope from Whisper White card using the Envelope Punch Board.   Since it is such a special birthday her gift is jewellery and I created a matching box to hold the gift for her.

I love that this is so bright and pretty and also a little grown up.  Once more Happy Birthday Abigail.

Bye for now,

      Yes she did. Can’t believe she is a teenager, although I think her Mum can!
