Happy 16th Birthday

December 18, 2020

My eldest granddaughter celebrated her 16th birthday last Wednesday. She was very excited to get her learner driver licence (not so sure about her Mum). Anyway she is a gorgeous girl and I wanted to share the card I made for her. I cut the large die from the Garage Gears Dies and attached it to the top left hand corner of Whisper White card. I stamped the “smoke” image from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto the lower right hand corner using Smoky Slate ink and the greeting from the same stamp set across the centre of the bottom edge using Magenta Madness ink. I embossed the whole Whisper White panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The embossed panel is attached to scored and folded Magenta Madness card. I stamped the car from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto Whisper White card using Soft Suede ink.

I coloured the card using the light Soft Suede and Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the car using the co-ordinating Garage Gears Die. I stamped the two balloons and the star from the So Much Happy stamp set onto Whisper White card using Magenta Madness ink. I cut out the balloons and the star using the co-ordinating Happy Die. I also cut Whisper White card three times using the balloon string die from the Happy Dies.

I attached the bottom of the balloon strings to the card front where the back of the card would sit and attached the balloons and the star to the top of the strings using dimensionals. The car is attached over the top of the end of the balloon strings using dimensionals. Lastly I used the retired Labeller Alphabet to stamp the “L” onto Daffodil Delight card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut out the “L” and attached it to the front of the card. For the inside of the card, I created a slightly smaller folded card from Whisper White card. I stamped the greetings from the A Grand Kid stamp set onto the front of the card (the fold needs to be on the right hand side) using Magenta Madness ink. I stamped the “happy” and “birthday” from the same stamp set below the first greeting using Magenta Madness ink.

I inked each of the words separately so that I could add “16th” using the Make a Difference stamp set. Rhe last greeting also comes from the A Grand Kid stamp set. I sponged around the edges of the panel using Magenta Madness ink. I stamped “You are So Loved” from the same stamp set onto the inside of the card before attaching it inside the Magenta Madness card base.

This is such a fun fold and I love all the greetings and balloons and of course the car. It’s a bit over the top but this is an over the top birthday!

Bye for now,

Kris
