Now I must admit to not quite knowing what I was going to do with this one.. I had HEAPS of ideas floating around in my head... but none of those seemed to translate very well to the made card...ooopsss... so yes.. there were quite a few thing placed in the REJECT pile. BUT.... after a little more fluffing about, I FINALLY came up with something that I'm REALLY pleased with. Oh and one other little suprise.. wait for it folks.. this card had not ONE ounce of PINK.. nope.. not one... OK it does have Kraft... hahha.. but NO PINK.. AND... I've used a considerable amount of a particularly scary colour for me... Taken with Teal... YEP... how's that for BRAVE!!! hahah
Ok enough rambling from me.. how about I show you the card I've come up with, and you can decide whether you like it or not:-
And here is Karen's FUN, FUN, FUN sketch:-
I've used Taken with Teal (scary colour) as the base then added some Choc Chip and some Teal DSP from my Sweet Pea pack. The ribbon underneath the square layer I've attached using a neat little trick I came up with... can you guess? I'll have to share that one with you later.. a bit like my Faux Suede tutorial... it's coming folks.. I promise!!!
The circle was cut using my Circle Scissors Plus and was sponged around the edges with Choc Chip Ink. I then stamped my image from Party Hearty in Choc Chip, re-stamped it again and cut out the 'b' to add a little dimension and then added a little Choc Chip ribbon tag and the centre present in Teal. I used my Simply Serif Alphabet and Numbers to make 'Jack' and 'Four' and then used my 1/2" circle punch to punch them out. They've all been sponged with Choc Chip ink too. I used the same method for the little party hats along the bottom.
This little card is for my Godson Jack.. who will be turning ... yep.. FOUR in July.. how organised am I??!!! hahaha
