18TH BIRTHDAY CARD




Good evening
I've not been on here much this week caught a nasty bug that went on my chest and wore me out a bit! Anyway I am starting to feel a bit better now well I must be as I made 2 cards one last night which was so late and out of necessity as it was my nephew's 18th Birthday yesterday and I didn't deliver his card and pressie til about 8pm last night! Bad auntie! I was just glad that I managed to get it done! Luckily it being a male card it was quite straight forward ha says she who struggles with male cards! but as it was an 18th easy with the number 18 and Daniel's name on it.
Then this morning I finished my card for the cuttlebugspot DT which I had started nearly a week ago before I became ill! I'm feeling tired tonight probably doing too much again too soon lol but you know what it's like us women just have to carry on regardless lol! I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things over the next few days and do some cards with the fab Lily Boo images.
Anyway for Daniel's card I used a 6x6" square card base with my fav birthday paper of the moment from Papermania the big one which I scanned to change to black and white. the number 18 from Don Juan Cart is cut at 5 1/4" on normal in black and shadow in silver and Daniel was done with design studio and Wildcard Cart and cut 3 times to get a 'Thicker' look.
Nice quick and easy card and I think I will be using this design for many special birthdays in future as it's so quick to do!
Thanks for looking!
