Look Who's Turning 14

I really liked this week's Make it Monday #34 technique that showed us how to make homemade thick chipboard accents.  It is so easy.  Basically, you just die cut your cardboard (I used coasters) 6 or so times, then glue all the layers together. I used it again to make another birthday card for my daughter, who's birthday is next weekend.

She loves cupcakes, and is turning 14.  I think you can see where this is going.....

I went back to Kim's blog to case the same card I cased here.  I was inspired to make the numbers out of chipboard by this card by Euna.

You can see how thick those numbers are.

A little peek at the inside of the card, where Rachel will find another cupcake.  I just love this sentiment from SU Create a Cupcake--it pretty much sums up Rachel's philosophy on life.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  PTI Big Birthday Wishes, SU Create a Cupcake
Paper:  SU Real Red, PTI White, MME Life of the Party 
Other:  PTI:  Numbers Die, Edgers #4 Die, SU Create a Cupcake Punch, Nestie circle 

Thanks for Visiting
