Starry 21st Birthday Card

Nicola, a colleague at Wilko recently celebrated her 21st birthday and I very much enjoyed making two cards for the occasion featuring butterflies and flowers.  No butterflies and flowers allowed on this one as it's for a male, my supervisor David at Wilko.  I opted for a simple black, white and silver colour combo and used the Tonic Studio lattice die again - excellent for those dreaded masculine cards!

I popped up the white lattice shape on top of the 5 3/4" square black card base.  The centre of the lattice has a circle element but I chose to layer a square over the top this time for a change.  I inlaid white die cut '21' numbers into a black square and popped up the black square.  I added a sentiment banner and popped up some silver punched stars.  To finish the front I embellished the lattice with some small black punched circles with silver nailheads adhered on top.

Here's a closer look at the '21' panel.  

Here's the inside of the card and the back of the envelope.

Here's the front of the envelope.

I remember my 21st year very well as it's when I met Owen.  That was 35 years ago - where has all that time gone?!
