I've made a couple of cards for my lovely nephew in the last couple of weeks. First up was a congratulations card to say well done, and how proud we were when his GCSE results came through and he got exactly what he wanted for getting on to his A level courses.
I've always thought he was a star, but then I'm very biased lol lol
Letters and star shapes all cut by Mr Robo. I managed to squeeze a teeny bit of ribbon and a glittery star brad - not too girly, though, eh?
The papers are from "The Black Market paper Society" and I've used them again for Charlie's birthday card.
How the blazes did he get to be 17 in a mere blink of an eye?
I hand-cut the numbers, used the Robo for the letters and a Quickutz football die for the, er, footballs! The colour scheme is all based around those of Newcastle Utd. I spent quite a while colour-matching that blue shade to the one on their website. Yes, I really am that sad! As if anyone but me would actually even notice!
Realised as I was finishing it that there was very little space to actually add a greeting, but just managed to get a narrow strip of paper hidden behind the bottoms of the numerals to write the message on! This is what it looks like standing up.
I've a couple more cards to share, but I'll save them for next time.
Off now to make a coffee and try and warm myself up. It's freezing here this morning!
Have a great day
