21st Birthday Card

Hi there

A couple of months ago my brothers eldest turned 21 and I forgot to blog the card I made for him!  (I hadn't downloaded it to the laptop).

Most of us find masculine cards hard to create - try a 'special' birthday - that's even harder.  I happened to spot this design on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect for Matt's special birthday.

To create this card I randomly placed all my Little Numbers Thinlits on the card front  plus the '21st' and ran it through the Big Shot.  I had to run it through again to change the '6' to a '9'.  At this point do not discard the 'inserts' for the numbers (0, 4, 6, 8 and 9) - you will need them shortly.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and the adhered a scrap piece of your chosen colour card stock behind the '21st' - I went with Daffodil Delight of course!  The card front is then adhered to the base with dimensionals.  Now comes the tricky part - placing the inserts back in the correct place.  I put a bit of Tombow on the back then placed it with tweezers - the '8' was the most trying.
