I had to take a step back from my blog over the few weeks, partly due to the preparations for my Stampin’ Getaway and also for a number of craft fairs I signed up to do. I know my readers have still been visiting me here and I thank you for your patience!
One person who shows enormous patience and support is my dear husband, he has been coming home to boxes stacked up, paper cutter taking up the dining room table, taking photos of everything for me, bits of paper and card on every surface in the house (amongst other things) and has never said a negative word. So it is right and proper that my first post is the card I made for his birthday earlier this month – yep I defiantly made time for that!
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Cherry Cobbler Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Basic Black Card
Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper
Ink Color: Cherry Cobbler
The DSP I used is primarily a Christmas theme however each sheet is double sided and if you flip the paper over you will find it has a more ‘general’ theme such as the checked pattern I used above. To put a little ‘sparkle’ into the card I used Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape – 5 different designs running from white, copper, gold and silver, so pretty and so easy to use.
A simple ‘Happy Birthday’ was really all that was needed cut with the Stitched Shaped Framelits and a scattering of the Black Rhinestone Jewels from page 53 of the Holiday catalog.
