He’ll be 17 (Eeek!) — FMS221

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our friend from New Zealand, Karren Johnson, is our hostess.  And she has a great , clean and simple sketch for us.

I decided to make a birthday card for my oldest, who will be turning 17 next month. WHAT?!!  I’m not sure how that happened so quickly, but there it is.

I pulled out two new stamp sets, Number of Years and Timeless Textures to make his card.  I went with a color scheme of Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, and Real Red.

Look 17I started by stamping the numbers on Whisper White card stock and cutting them out with the coordinating Large Numbers Framelits Dies.  I then embossed the sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I stamped the grunge-y textures with Versamark ink, and then placed the elements on top.

Look 17 Close UpThe background dsp is from the Schoolhouse dsp pack.  A pretty quick and easy card!

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch!  For a dose of inspiration, hop over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the other design team members made.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
