My First Card Make of 2011
What is it about my family birthdays that makes them all come at once? I have 3 on consecutive days in August and the rest are bunched in November December and January and by the time the last couple come along I'm running our of design ideas. The images have been made easy by LOTV and the hobbies of the recipients, but how to make then look different without flowers ribbons etc? I was lucky with this card, I spotted a sketch on Cards for Men - so I went for it!
The image is a cute LOTV fisherman, the backing paper Cosmo Cricket Earth Love, the tree paper is from SU, the dark green leaf paper is Papermania Secret Garden. I made a double frame for the picture to give a bit of depth and added some Craftwork card candy to the (not quite matching) swirls on the tree paper. I made my own sentiment on the PC and backed it with Hobbycraft *matt gold mirri* to match the base layer of backing paper.
* is that a contradiction of terms?!
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Cards for Men - Sketch
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Celebrate Something
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Now, I can't wait to do something pink & girly!
Thank you for looking
