Anyway, enough morose talk, here are the cards I made for this week's birthdays, both lots of fun to make, and Bob helped with the pirate ship - he loves turning the handle on the Big Shot :-) I hope you like them!
What I used:
Papers: card scraps
Tools: XCut Build-a-scene dies "Nautical", McGill hand-held two hole punch, blending chalks, Papermania white gel pen
Embellishments: Goldlabel holographic birthday peel-off
Papers: Holographic card, adhesive holographic papers
Tools: Sizzix Framelits with stamps "Balloons & Cupcakes", Whispers brush marker pens
Image: printable colouring page found on Pinterest
Embellishments: Goldlabel holographic birthday and number peel offs
- The pirate ship and the sea are made entirely from offcuts and scraps
- I didn't have a card blank the right colour blue, so I coloured the edge of a white card blank with the same pen I used for Spiderman.
- The Spidey card has 4 balloons because, yes, I am that nerdy.
- I used a very small two hole punch for the eye holes on the skull on the pirate ship. It was much easier to punch the holes and then die cut the skull around them than the other way around! I completed the face with a white gel pen
