Whilst i was in the Isle of Wight over half term it was my father in laws birthday. Now, i assumed that hubby would take this on board and deliver a card and present - but oh no! Apparently thats my department, so yesterday we went out for a meal to celebrate his belated birthday - and i made him this card to celebrate:
To create this card i cut a piece of 'Well Worn DSP' (a new set of papers - page 99 of the catty) and layered it onto a 'Soft Suede 'cardbase. Next i stamped the motorcycle image using the fab A la Carte 'Motorcycle' stamp - using 'Early Espresso' ink onto some 'Very Vanilla' cardstock - very carefully snipped around it - and coloured it in using my 'Stampin' Write Markers' in the fab new 'in colour' 'Lucky Limeade' and the trusty ' Basic Grey' and then glued it to the 'DSP'.
Finally i stamped the birthday sentiment (perfect for belated birthday cards). It comes from one of the fab new hostess stampsets called 'Happiest Birthday Wishes' - this is a brilliant new stampset that you can get earn for FREE if you host a workshop for you and your friends. (If you think you'd like to do that then email me your number for a no pressure chat: firstname.lastname@example.org) I punched this sentiment out using the 'Decorative Label' punch. I punched out a second 'Decorative Label' from 'Soft Suede' and mounted the sentiment on it and raised it using 'Dimensionals'.
