Happy 18th birthday

Here in the UK, the legal age for buying and consuming alcohol in a bar is 18, so boozy 18th birthday cards are very popular, despite the fact that most young people have either been sneaking into bars for a couple of years by their 18th birthday or, increasingly, not bothering to drink at all (they probably still drive their parents to drink though!).

So here's a birthday card for an 18 year old boy, made with stamps, dies and an embossing folder that came with a magazine last year. I'm not sure which but probably Papercraft Essentials.

I'm sharing this with
The Male Room - Anything Goes/optional beverages
Allsorts - Milestones with numbers


  1. This is such a great card for a lad - I love the embossed background!

  2. Great card for a lad, most lads as you say already drink but the USA they can’t drink until they are 21,

  3. Fabulous masculine card and a great stamp and die set
