Here's my card, then I'll explain:
|Sorry about the glare. Dang photographer needs to be replaced.|
This card is not what I set out to make. After about 20 minutes of searching for my number dies, I realized they're loaned out, and that's why I couldn't find them. Or maybe they were returned to me and I put them in a safe place. Really, really safe. Whatever, they're not around, so I had to go with Plan B.
Plan B was to use my trusty Hero Arts numbers background. I first stamped it with Versamark onto a white panel, then heat-embossed it with Hero Arts white. Then I stared at it for a while.
I remembered this post on the Hero Arts blog, where Cheiron used daubers to ink up her background, so I did a variation of that with my neglected Hero Arts Neon Ink Daubers.
Because I'm old, and I don't celebrate my birthday any more, I went with the "It's just a number" sentiment. I don't own that sentiment, so I made it with the Lawn Fawn Milo's Alphabet set. I love that there are enough multiples of letters to go around for most sayings. Plus, they butt up against each other for perfect spacing. Bonus! (heh heh I said butt)
I used the neon blue dauber to color a small panel to put behind the sentiment, then put the whole thing onto a Hero Arts Celadon card base.
After assembly, I decided this needs a miniscule Happy Birthday sentiment that will fit at the bottom of the sentiment panel. I'm still searching for one. If I'd been thinking clearly I'd have left room. Sigh. I may go back and re-do that.
Using numbers is a pretty easy challenge, and I think you should play along! Please stop by the SOS blog to see how the other ladies have interpreted the numbers theme, and to leave them some comment love.
Thanks for stopping by!
