I need a card for my oldest, who turns 18 next week. I have no idea how I have become the mother of a legal adult, but there you go! For Matthew's card, I went with an age card, because 18 is a pretty big deal here in New Zealand - you can legally drink in bars and you can vote. I know which one he'll be doing ;)
Speaking of drinking, much to my dismay, my son is pretty much addicted to the energy drink "V" hence the bottle on his card. I die cut the bottle and sponged it with Green Leaf and Olive inks to try and mimic the color of the real bottle. I then peeled off the label from a real bottle and die-cut the logo to adhere to my cardstock bottle.
The card base was stenciled with translucent embossing paste and a grid stencil. While that was drying, I also coated the "18" with Glossy Accents and left it to dry. The "notebook" panel was stamped with the Notebook Paper Background in Surf Blue ink then die-cut with Paper Smooches Paper die. The bottle top was die-cut from silver foil cardstock.
And that's it. I hope he likes it - not that he'd ever admit it, of course - he is a teenager!
