My dad turned 54 this year and he got this card on his birthday. My dad used to work as a card mechanic and he drove a car like this one when I was a baby, so it was fun being able to make a card that personal for him! The patterned papers are from the Dapper Dan collection by Glitz.
One of my aunts turned 50 this year and she got this glittery golden card! I know she likes gold and pearls so I think it fit her pretty well. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the party so I never got to see how it was received.
It’s been a quite crafty weekend I must admit. I made three cards using up a lot of time, as usual! I often find myself spending most of the time just figuring out what to do and what paper or stamp to use. This weekend I found a layout I liked a lot and thought would be fun to make a card of. It took me several hours to come up with something following the sketch! So while pondering I made two other cards, one of them for my brother as his birthday is tomorrow! I’ll just write the challenges used above each card to make it a bit easier to read.
Seize the birthday – anything goes with the option to use washi, which I did not do. I did however get to use my new hexagon die jenandtricks got me from UK! <3 The paper used is a mixture of some scraps, don’t rememeber the brandexcept for the brown (Echo Park) and the glittery one (DCVW). I cut out the letters using my Memory Box alphabet dies, which I love!
And for this happy card; Veckans skiss # 38 – layout. I colored the stamp from Some odd girl and messed with colors on the cardstock. Punched some red and pink hearts from my scraps and I even got to use my new pearl mists I found on a sale, woho!
My brother’s girlfriend turned 25 this weekend and I made her a card. I also made a tag-cover thing for my gift, a few items from the body shop for her to use. She is pregnant and I thought she should use some time to care for herself once in a while before the baby comes.
For her birthday card I used white and pastels with some light grey. Her favourite colors are white and any pastel color. The layout was inspired by last week’s mojo monday challenge. Posted this a bit late so I didn’t participate, loved the sketch tho!
The tag/cover thingy (can’t find a good word for it) was inspired by this week’s colorQ challenge #263 and the previous sketch at Freshly made sketches (too late again to join the challenge). So clean and simple but it felt empty so I added a ribbon, tag and a colored stamp. She loved it! My handwriting is usually quite bad and or ugly but this time I even amazed myself, I really loved the color combination too!
My mom was cleaning a crystal chandelier before the party, that’s why there are prisms in the background, hehe.
An old friend (and classmate) of mine got married earlier this year and next week they are throwing a wedding party for friends and family. Me and two other classmates are going together and I got the assignment to make a card for the happy couple. Here’s what I came up with during a scrap crop with mah glitter bitches today!
I remember that the bride used to love the color turquoise (I hope she still does) so I decided to make a card with white and turquoise and my all time favorite wedding stamp from Wee stamps, it’s adorable!
Most of the paper I used are from DCVW, and one from BoBunny I think, could be Echo Park too (why do I chop up my 12×12 and forget the brand?). Stamp from Wee Stamps Border punch from Martha Stewart, doily lace I think Alphabet stickers and flower from Panduro Will add some stickles too before I give it away.
I apologize for the crappy picture, I forgot to take a picture before it got dark and inside lightning is just awful. Did some adjustments to make it more true to reality. Hehe.
Me and Jennie made a birthday card for Malin. Her birthday is in April but they threw a birthday moving in together party this weekend. We made one box each and put them together so they fall out on each other. I got to make the smaller inside box. Here’s all the different pages/sides!
