Make it Monday - PTI

I've never played along with the Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink, but this week, I needed (another) birthday card and it's a perfect fit for the challenge.


We have a granddaughter that turned 16 on Monday, and as usual, I'm late getting the card mailed! Hope she forgives my tardiness! Super simple card.  I embossed a white background with a Lifestyles embossing folder that leaves an un-embossed area at the top...perfect for my computer generated "sweet".  The "16" was cut with Papertrey Ink's By the Numbers dies.  I cut the numbers from red card stock, then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder using one of the techniques shown in this week's video for PTI.  I cut an addition 3 layers from plain white card stock and glued all the layers together to give the numbers dimension without using pop dots.  I adhered the white embossed panel to a red paper (same as used for the numbers) and then adhered it all with pop dots to the white card base.  

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...

Hugs!

This is beautiful, and what 16 year old wouldn't want a personalized card just for them.
