Happy 21st

I was asked by a friend to make a 21st birthday card for her daughter.  I was honoured but then freaked out....like where do I start??

Well hello Pinterest!!! What a vast array of ideas from simple cards to the exquisit..I think mine falls somewhere in between.  

The request was white and gold, such an elegant combination. So taking a 5" x 7" Whisper White Thick card base, I matted this with a Gold Foil Sheet and used a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Pop of Pink range.   I cut 2 more strips of the Gold Foil Paper and used the Banner Triple to create banners.  I fussy cut the champagne glass and used some gold metallic thread and metallic enamel shapes for the bubbles.  I cut the "21" using the Large Number Framelits, tag from Tags and Labels Framelits and the sentiment is from Because You Care stamp set.  So here it is......

Now I had just one more dilemma.....we were also invited to the 21st birthday party so I needed a card from me too.

This one I made slightly bigger than the normal so my card base is 8" x 6" Basic Black card stock and I have layered this with Thick Whisper White.  Then creating a wider border I used the Designer Specialty Paper Pop of Pink hearts print for my background.

I then offset to the left hand side of the card a smaller layered panel of Whisper White, Basic Black and embossed Whisper White. Using the Banner Framelits, I created a flag effect where I placed the all important "21".  I used the Balloon Bouquet punch and more Pop of Pink DSP to create balloons.  I found some dotted ribbon that would match perfectly, a key, and a bit of bling and hey presto......here is the end result.

It's about here that I would normally give credit to the creative person I cased this card from but I cannot find any links or original post on Pinterest.
