Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge

 

PTI Blog Hop Logo I am so excited that I get to participate in the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  The theme is dedicated to all the boys and men in our lives and I have lots of those.  : )  This is the card I made for my son’s 13th birthday.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I used the Just the Ticket and It’s Official stamp sets along with the Just the Ticket border die, Spiral notebook page die and Seeing Stars dies.  I die cut the 13 using the By the Numbers dies then ran them through my Xyron and added glitter.  I used foam tape to pop them up and give them dimension.

For the inside, I stamped the ticket border and the sentiment and stars from Just the Ticket.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  Have a wonderful day!

I love distressing and lots of layers, and I am so inspired how you did those two things, but created a very masculine project. I love this card!
