Challenge #22 is all about numbers. Create a card with a NUMBER in the design.
Example 1 - This is just a white base and a patterned front cut from my silhouette, with a Nuvo Drop outline. The base was created by sizing the number to 5", copying it and rotating/moving it so the tops of the 5's were touching, then welding both together. This is actually a very simple card to make and perfect for kids.
Example 2 - I used the Avery Elle Numbered Balloons stamp set, stamped and die cut then adhered to patterned paper. I added a few Nuvo Drops because it was pretty plain without them.
Example 3 - I used the Hero Arts Numbers stencil to create the background. I cut out the sentiments from the Little B Numbers and Little B sentiments dies. Each are stacked 4 high. Then sponged on the same green ink I used for the stencil. I adhered them to a vellum panel then adhered that to the background to soften it up. I also used clear Wink of Stella on the sentiments for some sparkle although you can't tell from the photo.
Great samples, GiantsFan! I love that you used a pattern from the Silhouette store to fill in the number 5. The numbered balloons are really cute, and I love the Wink of Stella touch on your last card. It does show through, even though it is subtle in a photo. That is one of my favorite products.
I made a shaped card for my youngest grandson's birthday. The onesie card shape was inspired by something on Pinterest that I saw quite awhile ago and created a cutting file for. I sewed on the buttons and added the dotlets at the bottom for the onesie snaps, which I had to use an older eyelet tool to set. They were too tiny for my Crop-a-dile. When my DH heard the first "bang," he called out and asked if I was all right. He hasn't had to hear me set anything with a hammer in several years, so he thought the loud noise was due to some kind of accident at first. I created the phrase with my Cameo.

GiantsFan thanks for all the examples, they're all wonderful. I haven't used my Wink of Stella since my red heart on the coffee cup started running everywhere on my tea card! Obviously practice is what I need.
scrapnnana isn't that adorable? Very inventive and it's so pretty. My husband often comes running to chekc on me too, random thumps, bangs, crashes and grunts abound when I'm trying to make something. And then he has to pick up everything I drop on the floor!
Shaped cards are so cool. I was thinking I should try out the numbers on my Scan N Cut (but I didn't. But maybe I will later.) Funny that hubby had to rush and check on you scrapnnana!
I made a very quick card using a big number (but not a big numeral ) that I had been saving from Shimelle's Starshine collection. My nephew and my friend's kiddo are both 9 this year so I saved both of the NINE tags for cards for them. Bonus that my nephew's fav color is orange! All random scrap leftovers - the background paper was a 2" strip I cut in half, leftover from a boy paper pad I used up. I keep some random white die cuts on my desk so I used those to add the accents. I should probably gussy it up some more, but it's good enough. I made choices based on what kids like - the dots instead of the much more elegant pattern on the back , and the U R because (I think) kids love that kind of thing better than a stamped "you are".
I did experiment with putting the U and R further apart above the nine but then the card seemed to be saying something about URINE eek!
