So the card for today is a birthday card, specifically for a male. A lad over the road has a birthday on the 4th of November, and he is well into his cars, so I thought this image would be perfect. I wasn't too sure about the colours I've used on this card, but the more I look at it, the more it is growing on me. I have had it standing on my desk since I made it, and only last night did it get put into a wrapper for safe keeping.
On to the card..
I tried to keep it relatively simple - but not too plain - to keep the focus on the image and sentiment.
Solid card stock: Bazzill - Mint Green
Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket - The Boyfriend
Die-cut sticker: Cosmo Cricket - The Boyfriend cardstock stickers
Die-cut: Cosmo Cricket - The Boyfriend elements sheet
Stamp: Hero Arts - Birthday Sayings
Ink: SU! - Pumpkin Pie
Tape: 7 Gypsies Stip Gaffer Tape
Tools: WRMK - Corner Chomper; SU! - Paper Piercer; SU! - Scalloped Circle punch
Miscellaneous: Ranger - Glossy Accents
I am still in love with glossy accents, even after all this time. I love the effect it gives when you just blob a circle onto your design as opposed to spreading it out to form a layer. These coloured circles on the elements sheet cut out look like little bubbles!! Just lovely!!
Well, I am terribly proud of myself for finishing this assignment in advance of the night before it is due, which I must admit.. is usually the case. I cannot help it, I find that that is the way I work best, under pressure and with lack of sleep. Call me weird, I do.
Sooo.. in light of all of that I might just treat myself to a bit of crafting when I get in from darts later on. Depending on how tired I am of course. My eyes are closing as I write this. But needs must, I have a build up of craftyness inside of me.
Ok, enough with the rambling!! Enjoy the rest of your day/night.
