I had fun welding lots of numbers together in the Silhouette software to make a panel to decorate a Birthday Card.
For free File Friday I’m sharing the jumbled up number panel and the small square age panels. I’ve included a few possible Birthdays but if the age you need is not there, it’s easy to customise it – the numbers are in Arial in 72 pt and I’ve centred them in the backing square.
Here’s a close up of the card:
I made this card a a couple of months ago and now that I look at it again with fresh eyes I wish I’d cut the white background behind the numbers larger, so it would form a border – similar to the way I did the “40”.
To do that, just offset the backing panel to make it larger before cutting. I think I’ll try that next time I make this card.
I’ve included some basic instructions on the file.
Please help yourself 🙂
Update March 2015
This has been a popular cutting file and I’ve seen a few great versions of it out there on the web. Just wanted to post a new version of this card that I made recently. It shows how different the cards can look when using the same file but with different shapes, colours and dimensions.
