Unicorn Challenge Blog - January Blues (Mostly Blue)

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and the great New Year. The holidays are over for me I am back to work today. I really feel like the countdown to the wedding has started in earnest I do have lots to make. I might be getting some of my local crafty friends to help  me they have all kindly offered.

The new challenge starts day on the Unicorn Challenge blog and the theme is January Blues (Mostly Blue). I do like using blue when I make my cards.

This is the card I made for my future son-in-law when he turned 30 in December. 

This is actually a shaker card that shakes. I cut the Happy with  one of the Perspective dies designed by Sue Wilson. I cut the birthday from the same set lower so I could cover the happy with acetate and then mount it on two layers of foam. The void was filled with 30 confetti and this was backed with blue card. 

The 30th was cut with some X-cut dies I have had for a while. 

I do think the Perspective dies make really good cards for men. I will probably be revisiting this design it is so easy to change the colours and the numbers. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
