A family member is creating a card party for her son’s 12th birthday in March. Last year’s birthday party was postponed due to the beginning of the pandemic so she wanted to make sure he received some extra love for this 12th birthday.
My card was created by sponging Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves inks and die cutting a circle using GKD ThermoWeb’s Single Stitched large circle. This was layered on a gold cardstock die cut circle using Spellbinder’s Classic circle die and the gold numbers are Momenta and Concord & 9th double cut numbers dies. All of these were layered on a panel created by using Art Impressions Rectangle A2 double stitched dies and layered on more gold cardstock and finally on the navy card base.
Ben’s card will be entered into Just Add Ink’s Challenge #541 – Just Add a Blended Background.
Seems I forgot to use any stamps and where’s the patterned paper?
Thanks for stopping by for a peek. Happy Valentine’s to all!

Awesome card for the 12 year old boy! Your ink blending looks perfect. Love the large numbers.
He will be so happy you made this just for him. I don’t think he will miss the pp.
LOL…I was on a roll with that patterned paper though.
Nice card – teens are hard to make cards for – you did it!
The colors and layout are perfect for a 12 year old boy. Your color blending in that circle is amazing.
