My grand-son will 21 this year. A big time in a young man's age. So I thought I would make a Big 21.I used PTI card-stock, white, and enchanted evening blue. the white cs was distressed with faded jeans, spiced marmalade, and festive berries. When I distressed I wiped across the cs not worrying how or where to achieve the background. I wanted it to be bright and many colors. Then the firecrackers and 21 was cut with the Independence Day Cricut and George and Basic Shapes with my expression machine.. Haven't used these for awhile , need to remember them more often. I covered the numbers and some of fireworks with Stickles gold an let dry over night. Spellbinders Scallop Heart is edged with gel sliver pen..Fireworks on background are a stamp I have had for years. Memento ink, Rose Bud, and Danube Blue. Scalloped edge is an EK punch.
The inside has a firecracker on the note page. Like the way it turned out, just hope he does.......thanks for looking.
