18th Birthday Card

This card is easy to make for a young lady who will be turning the magical age of 18. The number can be changed to any age.



18th Birthday Card

For this project you will need:

- white square card
- patterned scrapbook paper with larger motif such as the hummingbird in the paper above
- textured cardstock in two colors matching the paper
- chipboard number 18
- cereal box
- black pigment stamp pad
- stamp with birthday wish
- clear embossing powder
- heat embossing tool
- Sizzix Big Shot or other die cutting machine
- dies with circles and scallops
- small hole puncher
- 3 mini brads matching the papers
- 3-D foam tape
- stick glue


1. First cover the front of the white card with the scrapbook paper.
2. Cut a wide cardstock strip to cover the bottom of the card and glue it on. Stamp birthday message in the lower right corner of the paper strip.
3. For the scallop, adhere a piece of the scrapbook over a piece of cereal box. Then again glue a layer of cereal box to these. Once the glue is dry, die cut the a large scallop out. This is now thicker and sturdy, like chipboard. Die cut a circle to fit the center of the scallop and adhere it to the scallop. Punch a small hole in each scalloped edge. Adhere the scallop to the card.
4. Trace the chipboard 18 onto scrapbook paper and cut out the paper 18. Glue it onto the chipboard number and then the number onto the card.
5. Punch 3 small holes in the top right of the paper strip and insert the brads.
