My niece Lauren was 18 last month and she had a Hawaiian themed party, so I thought that this pineapple cocktail would be ideal for her card. I added detail to the pineapple with Promarkers along with lots of glitter. The backing paper was a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine from last year. I topped the paper with a panel of white cardstock embossed with a swiss dots folder. I added the sentiment cut from glittercard and to finish a very pretty bloom with a gem in the centre. All of the elements were adhered with foam pads. A smattering of gems completes the card.
No.1 son Krishnan asked me to make a card for him & Sofia to give Lauren, and I decided to use a key (to the door) on this one. I know that you usually give the key to the door at 21 but I've seen plenty of '18' keys in High Street card shops, so why not?
I used Hunky Dory cardstock which was a freebie for the background and added a key cut from silver mirri and 'Lauren' & '18' cut from lilac glittercard shadowed with silver mirri. I added a sheer bow and blooms to the top of the key, along with a stamped sentiment. A smattering of gems completes the card.

I made a pizza-style box to put the card in.
