Here we are on Sunday evening wondering where the weekend went. It all passed in a whooosh! I hope yours was a good one.
I thought tonight I would share a couple of cards which I made for one of my Work Buddies, who asked me to make a card for her male friend who was celebrating his 65th birthday just after Christmas. Ann specifically wanted 65 on there and told me that he was a farmer who loved animals and the countryside.
Always loving a challenge I set about making two, leaving the 65 easy to add on whichever card Ann chose, by putting some foam pads on but not affixing them. Here is card one.......
The leaf with 65 on was left off until Ann decided whether she liked this one.
I used my favourite stamp company Artistic Outpost set Grist Mill with lots of layers, Tonic and Sizzix die cuts, TH wax paper, ribbon, feathers, button and string. The 65s were cut using Quickutz dies. As soon as Ann saw this she said she wanted it.
Then she saw this one....
A Penny Black stamp, coloured with Copics, Snippets of paper layered, ribbon and a glittered 65. Then she was stuck as she wanted both. So she took both hoping a friend of hers would like it. Apparently the Birthday Boy loved them both!!
I am entering the first card in the Artistic Outpost Challenge for January as all the images are from their stamps. I am also entering both cards in the Snippets Playground as they both include Snippets.
Have a good week everyone. Keep warm and safe.
