First card for 2014 and playing at some Challenges!
Hello bloggers it has been a while since I have posted (or even made) anything worth posting so today I will share with you one of the many birthday cards I have to make this month
as we are still on the Birthday roundabout in our family one birthday every 4 days starting at the 8th with DD's and it was her 40th so it has lasted 3 days!!!! Then after my birthday on Thursday the gap shortens to 3 days ending with our Grandson who will be 9yrs old......seems like yesterday I had my first cuddle, he still gives me a hug when he first see's me I wonder how long that will last.......... February brings an end to the family birthdays for a while with our Son's I have quite a few friends who have birthdays in Feb then a break for quite a while phew! Anyway enough chatter here is my card
Quite a fast and simple make for Hubbies Birthday 12 Jan yesterday, the main inspiration for the card came with the guitar sticker I have had for at least a year which I bought for his bday card last year then lost somewhere in my crafty stash and it came to light in September when I had a tidy up in my crafty room!!! The embossing folder Adagio from Couture Creations is another item that has remained in the packet for yonkes and yonkes (I know I'm a bad, bad crafter ). The music actually runs diagonally in the folder in case your thinking I put the card in crooked....... :))
I cut a circle with spellbinders die before I embossed and stamped the words in Archival coffee ink and the treble clefs in tea dye distress ink, from Creative Expressions stamp set Vintage Child onto the spare circle, this was glued to the card blank and the embossed piece was lifted with pads. Tea dye ink matched the guitar colour so well. All edges were inked with vintage photo which I also applied to the embossed piece. Lastly Happy was stamped one side and birthday was stamped and punched from same card, Ink Coffee Archival, Stamps and punch Stampin' Up!
