Cheerful, bright, happy, adventure, fun! This card says them all and done with Night of Navy make this a perfect card for a special 13 year old great Grandson! Sometimes it’s hard coming up with an idea for someone special and my Great Grandson is one of those very special kids! I wanted his card to say all of the above and still be appropriate for a boy. This is what I came up with.
The card base is Night of Navy with a layer of Carried Away DSP (Sale-A-Bration-Free!!! with a $50 order). I pulled the colors of Peekaboo Peach, Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder to brighten up this card. The panel with the ballons on it is Night of Navy with a layer of Whisper White Card Stock. Using the two medium size hot air ballon stamps from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set I stamped them in Night of Navy on a separate sheet of Whisper White Card Stock and using my Blender Pen and Peekaboo Peach and Night of Navy Ink Pads I colored them in. Then I die cut them using their matching dies from Up and Away Thinlet Set. (Comes as a bundle and you save 10%!) These were adhered to the white panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The numerals 13 were die cut from the Carried Away DSP and Night of Navy Card Stock. These were adhered together slightly off, creating a shadow effect. Then I using the scalloped die from the Layering Squares Framelit Set I cut the background in Night of Navy. I then used a plain sided die from the same set just the next size smaller. The numerals were adhered to the Whisper White Card Stock and then to the Night of Navy Card Stock and positioned on the lower right front and adhered using SNAIL adhesive.
The inside of the card was finished by stamping in Night of Navy Ink on Whisper White Card Stock the smaller ballon shape from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set. The Sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set.
