Turning 13 is a pretty big deal! Which is why I needed to make a pretty spectacular card for my oldest grandson who will be turning 13 soon. My how time flys. I remember when he was born like it was yesterday. The Beautiful Autumn Bundle was just what I needed to form a gorgeous autumn wreath around the number "13". I love that I can personalize my handmade cards in a flash with the Playful Alphabet dies!
Beautiful Autumn Meets Merry Moose Card Details
My Crumb Cake Card base was cut 11" x 4-1/4" and scored at 5-1/2".
The Real Red Card Stock was cut 3-3/4" x 5-1/2". Yes, that's Real Red Cardstock stamped with the Buffalo Check stamp and Tuxedo Black Momento Ink to make the Buffalo Check! Hint: I really like using my Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool when I stamp background stamps. Because I can repeat my stamping as many times as I like without the stamp moving, I get a solid evenly stamped image. See more ideas and a tutorial for stamping the Buffalo Check stamp here.
To make the wreath, I simply used my Beautiful Autumn stamps (Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake Card Stock) to stamp my leaves and acorns, then I punched them with my Autumn Punch Pack.
My stamped sentiments were stamped with the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamps.
Now for the important part of my card, I added the number 13 for Hunter's 13th Birthday Card by using the negative created with my Playful Alphabet Dies. Tada! Love these dies for personalizing my handmade cards!
Take a closer look at the moose. Did you notice the brushed look? That's the new Brushed Metallic Cardstock. Gorgeous! The bow at the bottom of the wreath was fashioned with Braided Linen Trim. It's so easy to separate for a frayed look.
