{Pink & Green & Sparkly} 13th Birthday Card

I think this card is teen and girlie, right? I know girlie, but I haven’t been a teenager in a long time, and my daughter’s only 4 so I tried my best to make my niece (who, OMG, is 13 already-when did that happen?) a birthday card she would like.

The color combo is Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Pretty in Pink. It’s a little loud and I’ll admit I went overboard with the bling, but I like it a lot! My husband thinks his niece will like it, and he’s always mesmerized by Crystal Effects, which he calls “glossy stuff”.

The numbers are from Bring on the Cake stamped in Versamark on Whisper White card stock and Heat Embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I colored in the numbers with Pretty in Pink Marker, and the 1 & 3 with Old Olive Marker. Then, I used Crystal Effects aka “the glossy stuff” to highlight the 13 and give it dimension.

I punched out the numbers with a 2 1/4″ Circle Punch and layered it onto Old Olive punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. In each scallop, I added Basic Rhinestone Jewels. Behind the scallop circle, I folded Old Olive 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and cut the ends diagonally with my Craft & Paper Scissors (which cut ribbon like a dream). That is attached to the card with stampin dimensionals.

The card base is Melon Mambo textured card stock layered with Old Olive. I used the Cutter Kit to distress the edges of the card stock. Next, I used pink polka dot paper from the Love Patterns DSP and stamped it with “happy birthday” from Bring on the Cake in Old Olive ink. To finish it off, I decided to paper pierce around the edges and add faux stitching with the Signo White Gel Pen.

Inside, I used some more of the Love Patterns DSP, layered with Whisper White card stock. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black ink and then colored in the letters with Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, and Old Olive Marker.

It’s A Stretch Continued

The above card was really simple to make. The base is Bashful Blue card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and folded at the top. I used Shades of Spring DSP as the background in a purple and white floral pattern. The stamp is from It’s A Stretch, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Gina K luxury white, colored in with Copic Markers. I matted the image layer onto a strip of Bashful Blue and then added a small yellow Circle Rhinestone Brad in the center of the flower with the Cropadile.

Next, I punched along the two long sides of a strip of white card stock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I mounted the image layer and mat to the white strip with Stampin Dimensionals. That was then adhered to the base with SNAIL adhesive.

Lastly, I made this card using It’s A Stretch. The base is Gina K Luxury Base Weight, layered with Shades of Spring DSP. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black again, and colored it in with Copic Markers. That was layered onto a strip of Rose Red card stock and then I tied some Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon around the front. I snipped the edges with my Craft & Paper Scissors into little V’s.  Simply adhere the image layer to the base using Stampin Dimensionals and you’re done!

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from On Your Birthday in Rose Red ink.
