Large number dies are the best for making personalized birthday (graduation and anniversary too!) cards. Here I made one over the top of a shaker element for a special 12 year old nephew. I fell back on the classic blue and khaki colors to make it perfect for a boy - despite all the sequins. :) I then embossed in white on the kraft card stock for the Happy Birthday and "t" portion and die cut them out using the Double Stitched Pennant Flag dies and Double Stitched circle dies.
