Who's 13 Today...

Hello blog,

Well what a day, just didn't stop raining did it? Okay, so it's my friend's daughter's 13th birthday today - Happy Birthday Irina :) I've heard today that she loved the card, so it's safe to say that I can now post it here...

I used numbers 1 and 3 die cuts out of chipboard for the base of the card, then covered with SU and Bazzill papers - Ballet Blue and Red (Would have used SU Real Red, but I've run out since making the Chinese New Year cards).
Used Versamark Stamp Pad with a variety of football stamps (football, football boot and trophy) all over - Woodware Stamps.
Cut out and spelt the name "Irina" using my Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter Machine (this is about the fourth time I've used it now! lol) and placed letters onto front with Zig Zag Glue.
Stamped another football onto the SU Ballet Blue cardstock, cut out and attached with 3D foam pad to raise it off the base of the card.
Finished the two chipboards with my Big Bite and added SU Pewter Jumbo Eyelets (P.82).
Then finally attached with ribbon from my stash :)

Hope you like, please feel free to leave me a message.

Bye for now,



  1. What a wonderful card - I'm not surprised she loved it! x

  2. Super card Alex. Keep up the good work.
