Casing Cecilia's Card

I fell in love with Cecilia's card at Cecilia's Cards in December and another CASE card came to bloom.

Check out Die Cut Divas for our "Make it Glitter" challenge for January, sponsored by HERO ARTS!

When I saw this card on the Cecilia's Cards, I fell in love with it and wanted to case it.  One tip from Cecilia, start die-cutting the number 2 to the right more as there will be a lot of thickness on the left bottom of the card.  I can't use my number dies the same as Cecilia because they are all on one plate (Cuttlebug Olivia font).  I still like Cecilia's best, but I went cased this card twice.



I needed a Thank you Card, so I used a portion of the phrase "Thanks for being a friend" 
from Hero Arts Enjoy Today and the Washi tape I had on hand. I die-cut my Glitter Paper and adhered the numbers to the card.  I think Cecilia's method wins hands down.

I made two cards while I had Washi tape and stamp in hand. I die-cut my White Glitter Paper and adhered the numbers to the card.
These turned out great for perky cards to start the NEW YEAR, but a totally different feel to the card. 
 I STILL LOVE Cecilia's card best.

Beautiful job Arlene! Love your wash tapes! It's a shame you can't line up your numbers like I have (PS you have to get some!)
