Numbered and Tailored Celebrate Birthday Card with Emporium and Bulletin Letters

Hello All and Happy Good Friday! My youngest Sonshine turned 20 today, and this is the birthday card I made for him, using the new Tailored, Colorize Celebrate, and Emporium and Bulletin Alphanumeric Dies from Tim Holtz and Sizzix. I also used the Numbered 3D Texture Fade for the background, which I can't get enough of for birthday cards....just love how it comes out every time. He will love this card I am sure, and it was so fast to make. Enjoy!

For the background I used the blue marbled Backdrops Sheet from Idea-ology, cut it to size, misted it with water, and ran it through the machine using the Numbered 3D Texture Fade. I ran the pad of Picket Fence Distress Ink over it to bring out the numbers more. I inked the edges in Black Soot Archival and then mounted it to Silver Metallic Kraftstock, then Black Kraftstock, and finally onto a card base folded and cut to 5x6.5 inches, and all those edges were inked in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
 I die cut the balloons from Colorize Celebrate using Silver Metallic Kraftstock, and the Tailored hat and suit using Kraft Cardstock and all three of the Textile Surfaces. The Textile Surfaces are perfect for this die set if you are looking for a real textural look. I inked everything with Gathered Twigs and assembled all the pieces together. 

I used Silver and Black Kraftstock as well as Kraft Cardstock for the mix matching of the letters and set aside the others that I didn't use for another project as it makes double when you switch out the negatives for another color of paper. Then I adhered everything on the card front. So simple and fast.
