21ST BIRTHDAY CARD USING NEW CUTTLEBUG HERRINGBONE FOLDER
Good afernoon all
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
Another male card today! Hopefully I can get back to pink and blingy very soon!
I was asked to make a 21st card for someone and my remit was his name, age, likes guitars and they wanted some photos on the card too!!
So armed with some childhood photos of Andrew, some DCWV Rockstar guitar paper this is what I came up with.
The card is backed with guitar paper from the DCWV rockstar pad.I used my cricut and Don Juan cart for the 21 cut in black for the base and silver for shadow @ 4 3/4". The base numbers have been embossed with one of the new CB embossing folders, this time I used Herringbone and like Donna Mundinger said on her blog this looks like tyre tracks (perfect for a male then!) Andrew's name has been done by welding letter in Design studio using Wildcard cart and silver mirri card and cut 3 times and adhered together to give a chipboard look. I cropped the photos and changed them to black and white and printed them on to silver inkjet film and the frames are shadow and base cut at 1 3/4 from My World cart. The middle frame is computer generated Happy Birthday font is Broadway on silver inkjet film. Some black 3d foam for pop dotting too. For special occasions I always record the details on the back of the card so that it's more of a keepsake as in the last photograph. I use software programme Greeting Card Factoty Deluxe programme for this as it's great for positioning and the font is again Broadway.
This card was so hard to photograph with all the silver foil papers etc and looks much better in real life!
Thanks as always for looking!
