Well its been a very busy end of January/beginning of February with birthdays. It was my daughters partners birthday at the end of January so I needed to make 3 cards for him, one from us, one from my other daughter and one from my grandson. As usual I left it right to the last minute to make the cards. Does anyone else do that? You know all year long that you have birthdays to celebrate yet never do the cards in advance !!!!!
Anyway, I wanted to do a card using the fabulous free sets we can earn during Sale-a bration so I chose to use the set Feeling Sentimental. Its always difficult to do male cards but don't you think these are great images to use on male cards? I do. I like the telephone box as it reminds me of my childhood when you actually had to go and use it if you didn't want your parents hear your conversation......lol
I used Night of Navy card for the base. On the top of that I applied Cherry Cobber Core'dinations card that was available in the Autumn/Winter catalogue, new colours are available in the current Spring/Summer catalogue. I have embossed it with the new embossing folder, Honeycomb, and have sanded it down with the sanding block to highlight the honeycomb design.
Next I stamped my image in Cherry Cobbleronto Very Vanilla card and cut it out using my big shot and the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies. I added the brads before I attached it to the card. Again, in Cherry Cobbler, I stamped the sentiment from the set and cut this out but this time I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits. The brads were added and then attached to the main card.
I think it turned out okay and, to be honest, it looked better in the flesh but then again most things do, don't they? I'll be back soon to show you some more cards made for the Jan/Feb birthdays.
