SHAPED CARD 8TH BIRTHDAY
Where did the weekend go?! Time is flying this year don't you think, half way through August already! Christmas will be here soon!
Anyway I just made this card for a little boy Ben who will soon be 8.
For the card I made a shaped 8 card in DS using Sesame Street font Cricut cart and the letters welded on to the 8 are from the same cart. The base layer is cut in red and silver speckled card from Kanban and the top letters are cut in silver mirricard. I used Sk8 from the Lily-Boo boys collection for the little silver circles which I turned from jpeg into a PNG file which allowed me then to change the outline drawing to red which I printed on to silver inkjet, cut with my circle nesties, pop dotted and placed at the top and bottom of the 8 The greeting is a silver peeloff coloured red with a permanent marker and mounted on silver mirricard.
The boy images from Lily-Boos are so versatile to print and use however you want, there are so many different ways to use these images and you get a collection of 6 for just £1.99! Great for the male cards we all struggle with!
Sorry for the glare on the photos you can see the image better on the third photo!
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
