Happy Birthday Dad


This card I made this morning,

and going to hide until beginning of next month,

as it’s my hubby’s birthday a week before mine.

This is from my 3 boys.

8th June 09 001

I used a marbled grey cardstock,

A4 folded in half to make a A5 size card

then used a silvery dark blue backing card,

that I punched holes in,

and two other scraps of blue with more holes punch in it.

I then used a Mikey digi stamp from Charmed Crafts

Distressed him and mounted him on blue.

8th June 09 003

I must admit I am not keen on the crumpled bit of distressing,

I have also decorated the inside to match,

all with peel off sentiments.

Love how you were able to combine all those challenges!!! Musculine cards are always that hardest, but yours is great!! I am thinking the crumpled look is exactly what you can expect from boys - mine anyway! LOL
