You can probably guess by the title of this post what I have been making. Two cards this week. The first is a birthday card, and Mr Holtz had the perfect sentiment for the inside.
For the outside, I decided to go for a cross between dapper and steampunk. To start with I cut out some black card, and edged it with fire ruby wax. I then made my own background, by inking plain card and using some stamps and stencils and brown ink. I then stamped a bowler hat and a moustache, coloured them in, and used Glossy Accents on them. Now the strange thing is I coloured the bowler hat with grey pens, but for some reason it ended up a delicate red! Still, it goes well with the colour scheme. I also die-cut a pair of glasses out of black card, using fire ruby wax on them. I added some snip art cogs coloured with gold and silver wax, a clock with fire ruby mixed with silver, and finally I stamped a sentiment, die cutting 60th on there.
The second card is for father's day, and I went to my Muppet collection for that.
The only other things I used were some stamps for sentiments, and also a die cut of a coffee cup I now have, although you can see I used Muppets stamps on that.
Finally, here is the update on the stitch.
Over halfway through now!
Until next time.
