Happy 21st Birthday
I don't like to complain about the weather but I am hoping its a little cooler today!
Today's card is a 21st Birthday card I made for a young lady that isn't really 'girlie' so no lace and ribbons! At first I was stuck for what to do, but then I got my my trusty old Cricut out, for the money we spent on it I really don't use it often enough, mainly because of my Grand Calibur and dies!
Anyway I went for a black and pink theme, I cut some balloons out on my Cricut using some My Minds Eye papers (i love them), I attached them to the card using foam pads, (I cut a colour balloon shape and a black shadow to highlight) I then coiled some Jewellery wire (although you can't really see it)
I used it as the string on the balloons! I have some banner dies that I used for the sentiment, which I printed
out and covered with Sue's 'iced snow'! I cut the 21 out on the Cricut too and mounted them on with foam pads. Some of Sue'e pearl swirls filled the background. All finished off with.......you guessed it, another Sue's Classic Bow, in matching card, with a pearl brad though the centre!
I decorated a handmade box to match, with the young lady's name on, as a 'personal' touch!
all for now, thanks so much for stopping by,
