My grandson, Ethan, will be 12 years old next week. He is a very talented artist, even at this young age. Here is the card I made for him:
I used a sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper that I have had for years, which I think is Basic Grey. Stamped the numbers on and colored them in with purple pencil. The starbursts and stars were stamped with concord grape distress ink. Some holographic paper makes the punched starbursts a bit sparkly, without too much bling.
Have a great weekend!
