This is the year my daughter and her friends turn 16 so I’m going to be making plenty of 16th cards this year! Here is one of them!
I decided to start with a panel of white cardstock I had embossed with the Painted Texture folder. I added ink using the Speckled Egg distress oxide ink. I also added some splatters of Coastal Cabana ink and some splatters of water too.
Next I added some silver embossed stars from the Trimmings and Tidings stamp set. Then I started playing with the dies from the Christmas Trimmings set and die cut three of the intricate star, lots of little stars and a label from the Seasonal Labels dies.
I added some organza ribbon and then decided to go for the favourite sentiment set… Biggest Wish.
I embossed and fussy cut the birthday sentiment and the Happy I fussy cut and placed each letter separately.
Finally I chose some letter chipboard stickers from the stash and added them. They were originally yellow in colour so I used my Stampin Blends to change them to a colour that went with the theme of the card.
Finally I added a little square with the “th” which was taken from a random birthday stamp where I just inked the 2 letters to create this little added element.
I finished the panel off with a couple of other layers underneath… the bottom layer is the Soft Succulent shimmer vellum, then some coordinating (but retired Tranquil Tide … I think???) cardstock.
