The usual request from my son,this time the day before the party instead of the usual few hours before, he's learning!
I thought I'd try to use up some papers I've had for ages,remnants from a pad of K and Co 12x12. I always find these papers hard to use as they are more muted in colour as apposed to the bright shades that I prefer. I got out my distress inks and gave them the works,completely changing the orange checked tones and after embossing the muted stripes,I inked them up some more.
I started off with just the square layers and couldn't make the numbers look right but then an idea sprung to mind, I cut a ring of the striped paper and a ring of the orange, it was fairly simple to do this after setting a "Centre point" on the Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook, I was a bit chuffed with my ingenuity.
I raised this on foam pads then used a double layer of foam pads to raise the numbers, a couple of different sized brads,a stamped sentiment,corner punch and some fake stitching and the card is completed. Oh, except for the inside where I used the centre of the orange circle for my son to write on and used my replacement circle punch to add some co ordinating interest to th edge. Should have left it there but I went a step too far and doodled some lines in the corners, I might make some photo corners to cover these up if I get time before it's needed.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
