We had an 18th Birthday in the family this week and now the card is open I'm safe to blog it. I had such fun making this card - lots of bling but still very masculine and very trendy with all the facebook like words and icons.
I used the brilliant set from Mama Elephant plus one stamp (status update) from Sn@p and just blue and grey ink. Drawing some feint pencil lines helped get the sentiments all lined up nicely. The 18 was cut with my cameo and then I used pinflair gel to cover the area under the negative die cut and lined up the black sequins in rows (painfully slow but worth the effort for the finished effect)
As I had stamped the sentiments to form a background over the die cut, I'm going to enter it into the stamp your own background challenge at Make My Monday this week http://mimchallegeblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/create-your-own-background.html
