My Husband's Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you had a great weekend and that you got done all the things that you wanted to do. We had a great time at Bristol Zoo it is a stunning location for a wedding. We have just a year to get it all planned and sorted. There is so much to do. I have made a list and my first job is to make  the Save the Date cards.

You know me I do like to get ahead with my card making. Someone at work gave me some cards to upcycle and when I saw the image of the wine bottle I knew just what I wanted to do and who for.

I bought the Happy Birthday paper at a Craft Fair a while a go this was a good opportunity to use it. 

I also had treated myself to the Heartfelt Creations Italiana Grapvines stamps and matching dies a while ago. They work brilliantly together. I stamped onto watercolour card with black archival ink and everything was coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens, I do love those pens.

This is my Sue Wilson Happy Birthday die it works so well for mens cards. 

It is fine to share this card my husband is not interested in social media. He does like a nice bottle of red wine though. 

Have a great week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Your hubby sounds very similar to mine Jackie, he loves his red wine too -
Love your card, the matching stamps and die are super and coloured beautifully. That background paper matches really well.

I love the grape vines hanging over that wonderful wine sitting on the table! Makes me feel like I am at the winery! Beautifully put together and what a great way to recycle a card front!
