Twenty-one today

These two cards were for the daughter of one of my friends who turned twenty-one on the 26th of this month.  Where have the years gone.  The first one is a Tatty Teddy card based on the card I made for our daughter but made into a 21cm x 21cm large easel card.  The materials used for this card are the same as those listed in my first post with the addition of an Ornare pricking template, pricking pen and blue thread for the embroidered "21" on the base of the easel.
Top Tip for this card would be to prick the numbers onto acetate first and then use the acetate as the stencil so that you know where to position the numbers centrally on the label.

Eilidh is an Audrey Hepburn fan so I decided to make her a card on this theme for our son and daughter to give her.  The images of Audrey Hepburn were taken from the Joanna Sheen Hollywood Vintage CD.  The embellishments were made from two sizzix dies and a selection of stamps.  Unfortunately the sparkle from the Disco Black embossing powder has been lost in the scanning. This was a fun card to do and hopefully the recipient enjoyed it as much as I did making it.
The base cards are white 21cm square cards

Black, grey and white cardstock
Spotted papers from Seraphina and Friends, backing papers and inserts CD - shades of black

Top Tip for this card would have to be to cut a piece of card the full size of the sizzix filmstrip die so that after removing the die cut,  the aperture left in the remaining card can be trimmed and used to make the frame for the main image. 

Thanks for reading
