Eight is Great!

My son celebrated his eighth birthday recently and I have been working on this one a little here and a little there over this past week.  His party isn't actually until tomorrow and thankfully I was able to get it finished up today.  It's a simple card, and really just a take on the birthday cards I made for my friend's twins'earlier this summer.  

The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up and the 8 is from Plantin Schoolbook.  I cut the 8 out of Coordinations cardstock and my original plan was to add a layer to the top of the 8 (what you see is the shadow) but I loved the way the coordinations cardstock looked so much I decided to leave it as is. The "is" came from my letter stash and the "great" was cut using Cindy Loo and of course I added  pop dots!

The inside sentiment was stamped using a stamp from Stampin' Up.

Paper:  Coordinations (card base and 8) and Stampin' Up
Cartridges:  Plantin Schoolbook and Cindy Lou
Embellishments:  Epoxy Stickers from my stash

Thanks for stopping by!
