Happy 18th

December 19, 2022

My eldest granddaughter turned 18 last week. I can’t believe how quickly she has grown from a cute little baby to an amazing young woman. Today I thought I would share the card I made for her. I followed some instructions I found on Pinterest by Julie Davison. Julie used Designer Series Paper as her card base and although I liked that idea, I wanted to use card instead. I followed Julie’s dimensions to cut Smoky Slate card and then did some fine tuning to add one of the papers from the Abigail Rose 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to each panel. I cut a Basic White panel to go inside the card and stamped “happy” and “birthday” from the Biggest Wish stamp set. I cut “18” from Petal Pink card using the retired Playful Alphabet Dies and added them beside the stamped “happy”.

I used post-it-notes to cover all of the letters in “birthday” except for the “th”, inked it with Smoky Slate and added the “th” beside the “18”. To decorate the front of the card, I stamped the flower from the Cottage Rose stamp set onto Basic White card twice using Smoky Slate ink. I coloured one whole image using Petal Pink, Dark So Saffron and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the whole flower using the co-ordinating Cottage Flowers Die. I coloured the flower only from the second image and cut out part of the flower which I attached over the whole image using dimensionals. I cut Basic White card using the largest circle die from the Layering Circle Dies. I attached the circle to a scalloped circle cut from Smoky Slate card using the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies. I attached the circles together before attaching the flower using dimensionals. The whole panel is attached to the left hand panel on the card front. I love how this card turned out, so thank you Julie for the instructions.

Bye for now,
