Happy Birthday Teenager!

I wanted to make a card for Jessica's 13th birthday, and I was inspired by the Basic Grey Fresh Cut papers I had on my desk from completing a layout for Scarlett's Birthday layout.

For the card I took a white card blank and using patterned papers, cut three different sized deckle edges rectangles using a set of Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits dies. I inked all the edges with Black Soot Distress ink. The greeting was stamped with Archival ink and Avery Elle Clear Stamp (Sentimental Too), across the largest rectangle.

The rectangles were stuck in lace on the card, then I flicked Black Ink using a Dylusions Spray.

Using the Sizzix dies from the detailed butterflies thinlits set, I cut a Base butterfly from patterned paper and a matching detailed butterfly from Black cardstock. I built these up on the card using 3D foam pads, adding antenna in the form of black stamen.

I added two words using the letter stickers from the Fresh Cut collection. The large number was cut with some dies from Crafter's Companion.

I still had some left over papers from the collection, so continued making cards in the same way to add to my stock. I used up all the sheets of paper from the collection that had already been cut into. A good bit of stash busting!!

Hope you had a lovely birthday Jess.
Thanks for looking.
