Recently I needed a birthday card for my niece turning 16, not that I can believe that little girl is 16 years old already, but I came up with this Sweet 16 Birthday Card for her. You could modify the background stamping for a boy and maybe not use the Glimmer paper.
The card base is Melon Mambo with a layer of Whisper White. I die cut the numbers with the Big Shot and the Large Numbers Framelits Dies. The background is stamped with the stems and flowers from the Number of Years Photopolymer Stamp Set. I did cut out a few flowers for a more 3D effect. And I loved adding the little Enamel Dots to the flowers!
The greeting is stamped from the set and then I used two Oval Framelits to cut the curved banner shape. I accented the bottom of the card with strips of Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape. It’s so fun to play with washi tape!
Stampin’ Up! Updates!
- We are happy to announce that we are bringing back the replacement Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Mats and Scoring Blades. These items will be available for you to start ordering today.Stampin’ Trimmer Replacement Cutting Mat (item 131375); $4.00 US
Stampin’ Trimmer Scoring Blades (item 126996); $5.00 US
We came to this decision by taking another look at the overall strategy of the Stampin’ Trimmer and its supporting pieces, and we were able to work out issues with our supplier to be able to offer these items to you. Keep in mind that the cutting blade that comes with the Stampin’ Trimmer does not make contact with the cutting mat so it should not wear it down. Like the cutting mat, the scoring blade is made to last and will not wear out. These replacement items may be helpful for you if you lose a piece or prefer to have extras on hand.
- Handheld Stapler Being DiscontinuedDue to supplier issues outside of our control, the Handheld Stapler (item 139083) and coordinating Silver Mini Staples (item 135847) will be discontinued after our current inventory runs out. We apologize for any inconvenience.
I LOVE my Stapler! If you want one, be sure to order one right away.
