DT Post by Kate - HB2U - 16th birthday card!

Hello Crafters!  Welcome to My Craft Spot!  This is Kate from Small Bits of Paper and I'm pleased to be sharing my card creation with you today.  My middle guy turned 16 a couple of weeks ago and this is the card I made for him.  My son was quite excited to wake up on his birthday to realize that he's now taller than his dad!!

I used Cricut Craft Room Basics to cut 16 number 16s and arranged them to create a large 16!!  (I do this by hand on the inside of my children's birthday cards each year and spell their names on the envelope using the numbers of their new age too.)  To create the border, I used a Stampin' Up punch layered with a strip of white paper.  I topped this with some Cherry Red baker's twine. I then used Tickets metal dies to cut the two little tickets hanging from the twine.

To embellish the tickets, I used Small Alphabet metal dies for the h, b and u.  (I used Cricut Craft Room Basics for the number 2.)  I then topped the tickets with two star shapes, also from the Small Alphabet metals dies set.  I finished everything off with a shiny star gem from my stash.

Did you know there is an AMAZING gallery here at My Craft Spot?  Click HERE to visit the gallery for tons of inspriation and ideas using all the My Craft Spot stamps and metal dies.  

Have a fabulous day!!
