Just Add Ink are also keen on numbers with their challenge this week - just add numbers. My eldest son turned 40 just 3 days ago, and I was sure that this clean card would appeal to him. This card was in my January class too, and the ladies loved the heat embossing and rubbing colour on with sponges. The stamp set is Balloon Celebration and it has this strange stamp in it which reminds me of bicycle spokes, but might be a ball of string. I was just looking for an abstract and open type of shape, so this was very suitable.
There is a thin sliver of the black glimmer paper which was in the previous mini catalogue just above the stamped panel, but the numbers were die cut from basic black. I cut three sets of numbers and glue the layers together, which allows them to stand out from the card quite nicely. The sentiment from Number of Years is a lovely one, so I've added that to the inside. I'm having lots of fun adding numbers to my cards, why don't you join in this Just Add Ink challenge too?
