Good Evening Everyone,
Today I have for you a card that I made for my dad for his birthday that he celebrated yesterday.
I always find it really hard to make mens card, and January is a nightmare, as I have three close together to make.
So the card is a 8x8 card blank matted with a backing paper that I printed of the Boofle Cd from Do Crafts.
The stripe paper that is matted on the dark brown card, is printed from the Wellington Cd
Around this section I have used Gardening Twine, and looped it around the border before securing on the back and sticking to the card.
For the corners I used a Cuttlebug Corner Die
The Image is a Lili of The Valley Rubber Stamp - This little cutie is called "Toot Toot"
I have coloured the image in using a selection of Promarkers and Graph' It Marker Pens.
The promarkers are
Scarf - Burgundy, Cardinal Red, Ruby
Arm - Royal Blue
Wheels - Cool Grey 1, 2 and 3
Hair - Warm Grey 1
The Graph' It Markers are
Hat - 3150, 3160 , 3190
Car- 7240, 7250, 7260
Skin- 4120, 4125, 4135
I cut the image out and matted it on a dark brown mat and then matted that onto a Nestabilitie shape called Nobel Rectangles - I got mine from Samuel Taylor (I in no way work for these, but I do use these and not had any problems with them, but obviously you still need to be careful) I believe it is shape 5 and 4 that I used together to create the frame.
I also used Opulant Ovals for the sentiment and the Sentiment is stamped from a sentiment stamp sheet (no idea of the make though sorry)
To finish the card I have added card candi, and gems.
The Challenges I am entering this into are:
A Gem of A Challenge -#111 One for the boys - 01/02
Paper Creators Challenge # 19 Anything Goes - 01/02
Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes - 01/02
Well that is it for me, I hope you like the card and thank you for stopping in.
