Happy 11th Birthday


Another Pinterest-inspired birthday card, this time for my daughter who is turning 11 in a couple of weeks.


I used a PTI die, cut in black and coated in Crystal Effects. The 11 is made up of two lower-case l's from a Memory Box Alphabet set. Each 1 is 4 layers thick - 3 white and one hot-pink mirror. I used a copic marker to colour the edges of the ones so that they wouldn't be white.

Oh my goodness! She is going to be head over heels in love with this one! This is simply amazing. That "11" is perfect for a sweet young lady. And I love the Crystal Effects on the sentiment too. Great card, as usual my dear friend! Bev

I need to start looking at things in an entirely different way - the Ardyth way. ;) Your daughter's card is a smash!

So cool! I didn't realize it was an eleven [until I read it] duh -- I thought they were candles -- so duo duty :) -- She will love the hot pink number I am sure!

[sigh] those glossy accents just make my heart happy. What a combo with the hot-pink mirror paper.

This is seriously cool - way cooler than I would have appreciated at 11 but I'm guessing your kids are as cool as their mom!
