My family seems to love having birthdays in groups and this past month is no different. Last week was my son-in-laws birthday as well as my niece! Thought I would share with you the card that I made for Jason.
I actually had a card sitting on my bookshelf which used this particular layout and I thought that I would use it again for Jason’s card. I began by attaching Whisper White card to scored and folded Night of Navy card. I stamped the striped image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink. I sponged around the edges using the same ink, attached it to Night of Navy card and then to Whisper White card. I stamped the triangle image from the Dotty Angles stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, sponged the edges with the same ink and attached it to Basic Black card. The panel is attached to the Whisper White card over the Night of Navy panel. I stamped the car from the Guy Greetings stamp set onto Whisper White card using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and attached it to Basic Black card. The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. Lastly I added three Basic Black Candy Dots from the Neutrals Candy Dots collection to the upper right hand corner. Simple.
It’s not hard to buy for either of my sons-in-law a bottle of their favourite bourbon or rum always goes down a treat and this year was no exception. I used the two largest Banners Framelits Dies to cut Whisper White and Basic Black card. I stamped “to and from” using the image in the Merry Everything stamp set and a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. I also stamped the car again using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The tags are scored and a 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle is punched through the end. This gives you a way to hang the tag from the bottle, no extra wrapping. He did get a little something extra and once again I used the brown paper that Stampin’ Up! supplies in my orders to wrap it.
All in all it went down a treat.
Bye for now,
