Grandpa Birthday Card


This card is a little different to what I usually make. I picked up a colouring book in The Works which had all letters of the alphabet in various designs. I found the colouring very therapeutic. I usually make a Grandpa card with the theme of rugby or steam trains. I wanted to make something different. The pages in the book have a perforated edge so they are easy to remove from the book. I have coloured the image with various pens. I covered an A4 card with green embossed card which I embossed with a Xcut embossing folder. I mounted the image onto Kraft card before adding it to my card blank. I die cut the Happy Birthday with a Tonic die and added it to an oval which I cut with a Presscut die. I added this to my card. I printed the "is for Grandpa" and die cut it with a Sue Wilson banner die and then added it to bigger banners before adding it to my card. I completed my card with some stars which I cut with a punch.
