There is nothing like remembering to make a birthday card the night before a party and whipping it up from start to finish in less than an hour! That is what I did with today's card. Not having enough 13th birthday cards in my stash (especially for boys) I created this grunge-y looking number. It would be quite easy to make it a little more feminine with pinks/purples/orange/yellow/aqua also.
I stamped all colours at full strength except the tip top taupe. When I stamped it on the #13 I stamped off on scrap paper first before stamping the cross hatch design so it wasn't as strong and wouldn't compete with the other colours I used.
Did you notice, I used 3 of the 5 retiring in colors on this card? Tip top taupe, cucumber crush and watermelon wonder.
If you haven't purchased ink refills for your 2015 - 2017 in color inkpads, you had better do it quick. Sometimes they even sell out prior to the retirement list being released!
