Happy 13th birthday Savannah

Its hard to believe that Savannah is turning 13 tomorrow. Wow where has the last 12 and a half years gone? Seems like yesterday that a little tiny 6 and a half month old baby girl became part of our family.
I decided that I wanted something quite grown up for the invites as apparently according to Savannah she will be old enough to go clubbing tomorrow! Well as far as I am concerned it will be book clubbing only for quite a few years.
On the left is the birthday invite in Concord crush and wisteria wonder. I used the medallion stamp with concord crush ink but stamped off (I stamped on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped on the whisper white). This gives you the chance to have 2 colours with each of your stamp pads.  Try it on a scrap and see the changes in the colour. Its a great technique for 2 step stamping. I use the 3rd image (stamp off twice) and the first impression for 2 step stamping, especially if I do not want to use the dynamic duo colour choice shown on a colour coach.

 I used the Big Shot to cut the scallop shape in wisteria wonder and used a stamp from delicate Doilies to stamp the centre on white. The numbers were cut using the big shot and concord crush and the wording is from Word Play.

I also wanted to make her birthday card similar to the invites so I just changed the wording to another image from Word Play and added a few pearls here and there.

A couple of close up photos of the birthday card, amazing how you can do similar looking cards and yet a few embellishments and you get a more sophisticated look (very important when you turn 13)

A close up of the invites.

Till next time
Happy crafting
