A 21st, but not mine!!

 Welcome 

I think there would be a few raised eyebrows if I tried to claim this milestone, 
as this card was made for a grandson!


I started with the piece of  red splattered card (made by banging Barn Door Distress Stain onto the card several times, then I added some Perfect Red Perfect Pearl spray over it) which I cut to size by 'stretching' a M/B stitched rectangle die. 


I then die cut the (Couture Creations)  key in Champagne sparkle card, altering it freehand as there were hearts in the tumbler and head of the key.  The two small charm keys were held together on a couple of twists of copper wire, and adhered with a glue dot. 


The Happy Birthday was gold embossed, using a stamp from a magazine freebie


The 21 was another die cut from the sparkle card.  This top layer was mounted on a layer of gold sparkle card, and then a red base.


The negative of the number die cut I used as an embellishment on the inside of the card along with some washi tape.

Great card for grandson Maxine. To be honest I'm quite happy being the age I am. Im not anxious to go through the learning lessons of younger ages again.
Well done Shaz in Oz.x

A great card for a young man - I will take this idea on board if you don't mind as I always find these cards difficult. You on the other hand seem to do well with any cards.
Hugs, Neet x
