Party Like A Rock Star!

I usually like to make quick cards as I am often short for time and inspiration....however, when you promise a nephew that you will make him a special card for a special birthday....then you need to take a bit more time and effort!

So to encourage him to 'party like a rock star' I made an 18th birthday card featuring our bold stamp set Marquee Messages. I think this set has a lot of WOW factor and gives impact to the message you want to send.

I had fun putting this card together and I am sure Nicholas had fun turning 18, he was looking forward to this milestone in his life, and I am proud to be his auntie. He is a lovely caring lad who has a heart for the Lord and always ready to challenge himself to new things. The world is full of opportunities Nicholas and I pray that you take hold of all that come your way!

I also used my Stamparatus to help with the placement of these stamps and messages, it made it so easy to come together and I could also restamp the 'Birthday' greeting so it was clearly stamped, without smudging or getting it out of alignment! This new product will be available in our new catalogue out later this year.

The '18' was diecut using a retired Stampin' Up! set of number dies as the current ones were too big for my purpose on this card. Always good to use supplies you have bought and stashed away!

As this is a special card it also needed to be decorated on the inside, although only a little, so I can have space to write my message to Nicholas.

Now the next decision is to continue card making as I need to put together the cards from the Lots of Happy Card Kit, that I coloured last night, to finish or at least continue cleaning my craft room or to go get groceries!!
