Hello everybody, I hope you are having a lovely weekend!
I'd like to share with you a card I made for my youngest son's 40th Birthday. I can't actually believe he's 40 because that would make me ............... nah!! that can't be right!! hehe! Unfortunately for me, it is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyhow, this is the card I made for him. I have to say, I really like how this one turned out ... and I think it suits him to a tee!!
This is a pocket tag card and I used black cardstock to make the base. The papers are a mix of Prima Craftsman, Glitz French Kiss and Kaisercraft's Sears & Son.
Here you can see how it opens.
Small pieces of the papers were used to create the layers along with a piece of dry wall tape. The ruler is from Prima"s Engraver Collection. The large clock was cut with my Silhouette, coloured with Versa Color Charcoal and coated with Glossy Accents. The chipboard clock is from Imaginarium and was left mainly raw except for a light edging of Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The printed clock is an image from the net which I mounted on some pasteboard and also edged with the Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Here is a closer view of the tattered clock and also the chippie on the side which is from G45's Curiosity Shoppe Collection.
The base paper was stamped lightly with Kaisercraft's Sketchy Background Stamp in Memento's Tuxedo Black.
The inside wings of the card are lined with Prima's Engraver Paper which was lightly stamped with another Kaisercraft Background Stamp and Versa Magic Cloud White. The tags I used are a mix of self made tags with quotes found on the net and tags from Kaisercraft's Take Note Collection. The chippie cogs are from Imaginarium which were lightly edged with Walnut Stain and Fired Brick Distress Ink.
The inside centre of the card was lined with paper from Kaisercraft's Sears & Son and the pocket was made with Prima Engraver paper. Printed the sentiment on some DP from my stash which was mounted onto black cardstock and stamped with Kaisercraft's Arty Background Stamp. The clock is Imaginarium and the Greeting was printed with Word Art and then made into a Banner.
I'm very pleased to say, it was well received.
I do believe I have said this before, but I love making these kinds of cards because there is so much you can do with them. Lots of spaces to decorate.
Well that's all again from me I hope I have given someone some inspiration here.
Thank you so much for visiting today.
Please take care and God's Blessings to you.
