Make a Wish birthday card

Making a card for a teenage boy is always a bit of a challenge.  My nephew turned 14 recently and this card was made especially for him.


I kept the colour scheme simple by using Stampin' Up!'s Basic Black, Whisper White & Silver and had stars as the theme. 

I created the banner from Silver foil, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock and used the Triple Banner punch to create the flagged ends.  The Confetti Star punch created a decorative border at the top of the banner and the stars from the punch were then used to decorate around the edges. Some Basic Black Bakers Twine was also wrapped around the top of the banner to add some texture.  The 'Make a Wish' sentiment is from the Perfect Pennants set and I stamped the letter 'a' twice and raised it up on some Silver Glimmer paper and foam dimensional. The number 14 was die cut using the Little Numbers thinlets in Basic Black card stock.

The banner was mounted on some Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper which was then attached to a Basic Black card base. Three Silver Glimmer paper stars were punched using the Itty Bitty Accent star punch and a black candy dot added into the centre of each to complete the card.

All products used on this card have been listed below.  Click on the picture and it will take you to my online store where the product can be purchased.  Papercrafting classes are available.
