Number of Years

CCMC399Oh…what a FUN sketch we have for you over at the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge!  I just LOVE it and had sooooo much fun putting this card together!

On of my FAVORITE products in the Occasions Mini is the Large Number thinlets.  What a GREAT size and just so much fun for a birthday card!  I decided to pair it up with the Schoolhouse dsp for a fun ‘kid’ birthday card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Schoolhouse dsp – 1 /2 x 3 3/4, layer Basic Grey strips – 1/2 x 3 1/4 along the top and bottom and add to card front
  • Garden Green – 1/4 x 4 1/8, add to card front
  • Tangelo Tango – cut out star frame using 2nd and 3rd smallest star, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Pacific Point – cut out the number and add using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Grey Archivals
  • Punch out striped balloon using smallest balloon and yellow/white striped Schoolhouse paper, add thin strip of Basic Grey behind the balloon and add to card front using dimensionals

  1. Great card Mary, I love how this set works so well with the sketch – will have to give it a go! 🙂

  2. I am loving these numbers too Mary and this is a great CAS card for mass production that would work with so many different paper patterns colours. Such fun!

  3. Love your color combination, really makes for a cheerful and bright card.

  4. The large numbers are my favorite – it’s great to be able to showcase the number as you have done here! The star and balloon are a perfect compliment to the greeting!

  5. I love how you’ve drawn your color scheme from the designer paper. That is a pallette I would not usually be drawn to, but you’ve made it look so fun!

  6. Love how you die cut out the center of the star instead of leaving it solid, adds a fun twist! Aren’t these numbers great? Possibilities are endless. Lucky to be creating with you on this design team. =)
