Our friend's son, Rubin, is 20 on Thursday and this is the card that I made for him. I used papers from Dovecraft called Funky Vintage..they are great for teens & just out of teens! Before I decorated the card I cut a star from the front of it using the Centrepoint function. I then adhered the paper to the front of the card and trimmed away the paper behind the star to create an aperture. I cut a ring from red mirri cardstock (this was a bargain..10 sheets (10 colours) of larger than A4 card for.... wait for it!... 99p!!! from the kiddies craft dept at The Range) This mirri has a slight grain to it...but you need to peer veeery close to see it! Still, at that price who the heck cares! I also got Gold & Silver (15 sheets) for 99p also! Anyway back to the card. I adhered the ring over the star aperture and cut away the piece going across the star. I cut Happy Birthday from green mirri with a black shadow and adhered it on a slant across the ring. In the spaces remaining to the left and right of the aperture I added Rubin's name with letter stickers. I cut another star (slightly larger than the aperture) from red mirri, embossed it and adhered it behind the aperture on the back of the card. I cut out a '2o' and adhered it with foam pads to the star. I cut It's your day from black mirri and glued it above the star to finish.
