Woodware Big 21

Back today with another Woodware favourite and it's the big number stamp 21 this time.  This card was sent off to a friend's daughter in Wales.  This card is great to use for either male or female cards as you can see in this earlier post and this post.

The three shades of blue patterned papers used to make this card are from the Nitwit collection Snow Princess solids.

The flowers were die cut and layered using the following Marianne dies with Craftworks Card candi added to the centres.  The smallest flowers were punched out using a Tonic small flower punch with crystal stickers added to their centres.

The number 21 was stamped and embossed on to the two palest patterned papers using VersaMark ink and Disco Black embossing powder from Stampendous.  The palest one was cut out and paper pieced on to the darker one to make the main topper.  The topper was then dry embossed using the Cuttlebug Falling Snow embossing folder.  This seals the paper piecing to the topper and adds texture.  The topper was then framed and layered using Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Plain Square dies and a stitched border was added inside the frame.  

A stitched border was also added to the other backing panels.  On the main backing panel a 21 stamp from Personal Impressions was used to add a border around the edge.  VersaMark ink and Disco Black embossing powder were also used to add this.  Small silver keys, navy grosgrain ribbon and brads were added as embellishments.

A co-ordinating money wallet was made using the left over pieces of paper and card.  The bow attached to this was made using a Sue Wilson die set.

Thanks for reading today
