Dies R Us Challenge - What's Your Number?

Hello All...
Well here we are half way through another month and of course
that means it's time for a new challenge
at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.

And, the theme is:
 (use a number on your project)

My grandson turned 21 earlier this month and I just had to make him a special card to mark the milestone!  This kid has been involved with cars, bikes & racing since he was born so of course I had to go with a diamond plate background for his special card.    I've used Silver Metallic paper and an old Cuttlebug diamond plate embossing folder.

Here's another angle ... it is SO HARD to get a good photo when using these metallic papers.

I used a scrap piece of black card stock and die cut the 21 (Memory Box Classic Numbers)
then popped up the panel for dimension.  The heart & candle were 'left overs' from another project and just happened to be laying on my work table so I put them to use!  Perfect!  The Happy & Birthday is a Poppystamps die called 'Jumbled Happy Birthday'.

Here's a couple of photos I snagged the birthday boy's FB page ...
Told you he likes racing!
And obviously doesn't mind getting dirty.
Sure glad I'm not doing his laundry!   LOL


Okay ... so I couldn't close with you thinking my grandson is always this dirty! LOL
He cleans up really nice too ...
Such a handsome young man!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!

  4. Love the embossing on the silver with the black die cuts. Very effective. Thanks for joining in at Daring Cardmakers. x

  5. Very nice card. I love that diamond plate E.F. and I agree with you about photographing the metallic paper! I just recently made a dirt bike card for my 11 year old son and used the same E.F. and metallic paper and I must've took 50 pictures just to get a good one!! Man, I wish we had trails like that where I live!! I'm sure your Grandson loved this awesome card you made for him. Thanks so much for joining us for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

  6. That's a great male Card. The embossed Background Looks amazing on the silver metal paper.

  7. Ha! I think he looks cute all dirty, but he sure does clean up purdy, too! Perfect card for him and very opportune that it fit in with the DRU challenge. This would be a challenge for me, but I've been seeing some number sets I wouldn't mind having, so you girls have done your job! Have a good rest of the weekend. I think I finally caught up with all your posts. It's a lot quicker on my blog, isn't it? Teeheeheeheehee!

  8. It is truly a great card for a young man who enjoys racing! What a cool masculine birthday card!
