Hello everyone, thank you so much for your lovely messages. I thought I would show you the card I made for my eldest son's birthday. It was on New Years Eve & he was 24.........wow time really does go too fast.........we have to saviour every single minute!!
I decided to go with a verse instead of a stamped image & searched the internet until I found one........gave me a really bad head but he's worth it!!
The papers are Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics 6x6 pad. I love that this pad is great for female or male.
I cut the wording from the top sheet & layered it onto Navy card & made it into a flag, attached a button at one end with twine.
It reads 'A time forever etched in our hearts and memories'.
Did the same with the bottom but instead attached a Motorbike charm. Ok so why is my darn camera lying to you & saying Royal Blue........wat the hell!!!!!!! Its navy......trust me ;-)
This flag read 'Memories are timeless treasures of the heart'.
This is the verse I found on the internet & then wrote it out using a program on my laptop & printed it out. I love this verse & was perfect for my son.
This is the inside of the card & I did the same with the flags & wrote a smaller verse for inside the card.
My family are my world but they are not just my family.........we are all best friends & that is the best part ;-)
I cut out a tag from the same paper collection, added the letters spelling 'SON'. The numbers '24' I cut out using a Die-Namics die.
I added 'Burlap Trim' across the centre, even male cards need different textures & some sort of ribbon/lace/trim lol. The 'Clock' charm is from my stash & I added Prima Vax Cord to it.
I find male cards hard but I plan to do more of them this year, I have quite a few plans this year venturing outside my normal cards, so watch this space lol.
Thankfully my son loved the card, my granddaughter also loved her card & she had a fabulous day bless her & loved it all.
Anyhoo's I'm off now to Ben & Megan's, family day.........my favourite days of all.
Thank you for stopping by it really means a lot.
Take care & enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxxxxxxxxx
