Birthday Cards And More

Some Cards


As my father died last year I had nobody to make a Father’s Day card for this year.  However, one of my nephews did want to make a card for his father so needed some suitable material put out on the kitchen table for him to choose from.

He was so keen to make an extra special card, and couldn’t decide between two images, that he put one topper on the front and one on the back – which meant that his father could choose which image to display, or even turn it around periodically to display a different side.

Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of both sides, but here’s the side I did photograph.

I do know that both the toppers were Hunkydory, and I think they came from the spring decolarge collection, though my nephew decided not to decoupage either image on his card.

Which of course meant that the extra layers were available for me to make cards with while waiting for him to finish his creation.

My brother’s birthday was before the end of June so I thought it would be a good idea for me to take the opportunity, while lots of cardmaking stuff was out, to make cards for me and our mother to give my brother.

And for one I used the layers my nephew had decided not to put on his Father’s Day card.

This was simply layered on a 6″ square scalloped edge card. I used a fine liner pen to give some definition to the image area because of not using the base layer.

I had another set of decoupage layers from the same Hunkydory collection where the base image and a couple of the layers had been used previously, so I decided to use them up to make the second birthday card.

Once again I added some details with a black fineliner pen.


That’s it for today.  More card making and other crafting before too long, so please do pop in for a look again.
