How is your week going? I am keeping busy. One positive thing is that I don't seem to be having as many headaches. They have been the bane of my life for a long time.
Very soon my brother-in-law will be Sixty. He has invited us to the party he is having to celebrate, which should be fun. I decided it would be rather nice to make him a card. He loves cricket and supporting Aldershot Town Football club.
The image came from an old card it is a rather large image. The colours are Aldershot Town Football club colours. I used the Twinkle, Twinkle embossing folder from Creative Expressions to emboss some white card that I then inked with Distress ink. I also used that very useful ribbon was from my stash.
I trimmed the image as much as I could. The original had rounded corners so I decided to carry this on. When you use old cards they often have sentiments so you don't have to try and fit one on.
I love using Alphabet dies it is so easy to personalise things. Bob was cut with a die set that I bought from Crafter's Companion.
The bunting was cut with a Tattered Lace die.
This is an X-cut die set.
This is a large card nearly A4 in size but it is a special birthday.
I would like to enter Challenge 128 at the Creative Moments Challenge blog ,challenge 135 at the Inspiration Destination Challenge blog and challenge 177 at the Crafting from the Heart Challenge blog.
