This coming weekend my sweet niece, Madison, will turn 13 years old. I can hardly believe she's growing up so fast! My sister-in-law was quite literally barefoot (and pregnant) when she walked down the aisle at my own wedding 13 years ago! Madison is also my first niece, or nephew for that matter, so she has a special place in my heart. In honor of her 13th birthday I had to create a special card sure to impress a teenager!
Hopefully this will WOW her! If not the $$$ Auntie Crystal tucked inside is sure to bring a smile to her face!
LUV U, Maddie!
*Full supply list at end of post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Basic Black Cardstock. Using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies by Gina Marie Designs, I die cut the largest rectangle from Melon Mambo cardstock and adhered it directly to the card base. The heart paper is from the Pop of Pink DSP (retired). I cut a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of this paper and adhered it over the scalloped rectangle. The two cell phones were die cut using the Lawn Fawn Selfie Frames die and Basic Black cardstock. I cut a 2" x 2 1"4" sheet of Whisper white cardstock and adhered it to the cell phone "case" in order to stamp my text messages on. I used the (retired) Text Ya Later stamp set by Stampin' UP! to stamp my message.
Using a 1/2" circle punch, I punched two small circles to use as the cell phone "home" button. I added a layer of Clear Wink of Stella to the "home" button for added sparkle. After I stamped the text messages (all in Tuxedo Black Memento ink) I adhered the two cell phones to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
