Stampin Up Large Numbers Framelits Dies (Retiring Item)
Lately I have been featuring some of the retiring items that I will be hanging onto for quite a while, like the Stampin Up Large Numbers Framelits Dies – I can't imagine not having them!
They make for fast personalization, as well as come in handy for annual events – such as graduation and New Year's cards, these dies are just so versatile!
Personally I can't believe that these have not sold out yet. The Large Letters Framelits are NOT retiring, but these are. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my letters, but actually use these numbers more. I do also love the stamp set and later this week I will be sharing a card that uses both the Large Numbers Framelits, but also the stamp set.
Emily is about to turn 12 – and that means that several of her friends are turning 12 too. Two friends in June, along with her. So knowing what I know about her and her sweet friends, I pulled in other supplies that would really help me personalize cards for all three girls, yet still use these framelits.
The first one is for Addie. Addie loves clean lines, likes things neat and orderly, but likes little touches of fun. This card can easily be changed into a card for boys, just eliminate two items or change them out.
Making This Card
This card starts with die cutting the numbers, one on top of the other. We are using the negative portion of our die cuts (don't worry, the positive pieces will be used later this week.
Before attaching the yellow piece of card stock to the strip of Pick a Pattern DSP (which is also surprisingly still available), I wrapped a strip of narrow white ribbon around the yellow card stock between the numbers.
Behind the patterned paper, on the right hand side, a small piece of doily was attached. These actual doilies have sold out, but there is something similar coming out in the new catalog. This is one of the items that you can remove if making this card for a boy.
Then it was time for a little ink splattering 🙂 I like this technique because it's making a mess, it's making a controlled mess. To do this, grab your broad Aqua Painter, get it really wet, pull in some black ink to the tip of it, then use your bone folder to tap on your Aqua Painter while holding it over your Whisper White card stock.
All that is left to do is attach everything together and add your ribbon – the bow is the other part I would change to make it a boy card – just tie a single knot around your base ribbon.
Use Dimensionals to attach your entire front card panel to your Whisper White card base to add a bit more oomph to it.
Then sit back and enjoy your creation!
I know Addie will love this card!
I can't imagine not having these number dies, as I said above, they are just so versatile!
