Hi everyone! I have yet again procrastinated (from study) and have made a card lol I thought I might tackle this week's Make It Monday!
Now, I don't have any chipboard at home, so I substituted it with PTI coasters (which I love). I had enough left over bits to cut out numbers using By the Numbers die set, which was great!
The card is somewhat similar to one of the cards I did earlier in August in style, but the thick chipboard certainly makes the numbers POP! I added in an extra pop-factor (lol) by glittering my numbers.
FYI - for those wondering why I always make cards with "24" on them - I never know what number to go for. But I figured I'm 23 now, so most of my friends would turn 24 next year, which means, 24 is the safest bet for actually using the cards I make now. So long story short, I'm being efficient and preparing for next year!
I do think I may have over-done the sentiments a little. Initially I had no "birthday" sentiment, then I realised I'd already stuck "-th" onto my numbers. Then it didn't make any sense (grammatically) and being pedantic as I am, I went and added the extra sentiment from Birthday Bash Sentiments in.
A close-up view to show you the chipboard - I layered 5 coaster layers to get the thickness that I did. 4 is also not too bad. By the way, I used Zig 2 Way Glue to put together my layers.
I also added a bit of background stamp with A Little Argyle. I thought I'd try using the dotted stamp image over from the same set and halfway through didn't really like it so stopped lol
Anyway, I have another MIM card coming. It's drying up Mod Podge in the sun atm. I'll post it tomorrow after my biochemistry test!
Thanks for coming!
