21st Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share another old card with you today. I made this for my partner for his 21st Birthday two years ago although I have only recently gotten round to photographing it!

I started off by cutting down a black piece of cardstock slightly smaller than my white card base. I then matted the black layer to my card base using double sided tape. Next I adhered some silver ribbon to the top and bottom of the black layer using double sided tape. I used a 3'' circle punch to cut a circle from silver cardstock. I adhered the circle to the centre of my card and carefully glued rhinestones all the way around the perimeter using PVA glue. I adhered some store bought die cut glitter numbers to the centre of the silver circle to finish my focal image. For my sentiments I used a pack of store bought 'toppers' and I added my partners name using glitter alphabet peel offs.
To finish off the card I made a key tag from a die cut silver key and some ribbon. I wrapped the ribbon over the top of the card and adhered inside. 

I have learnt so much since I made this card, if I were to make it again I'm sure it would be a quite a bit different! To start with I wouldn't be using premade store bought toppers as I now have all the equipment to make my own! It's all experience though!

I am entering this card into three challenges Songbird Challenges 16 going on 17 Age Challenge, CAS-ual Fridays Hi Ho Silver Challenge and Addicted to CAS Masculine Challenge. I hope I qualify for these challenges, I made this card a while ago but I have never posted it on my blog.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you have enjoyed stopping by!

Until next time,
