My card for The Sketch File this week was made for the birthday of one of our nephews. and as I think it's often harder to make cards for the grown up nephews than it was when they were small (and it was hard enough then!) I chose to keep it simple with a stylish black, white and silver colour theme.
The starry background is stencilled in black ink
(Starry stencil - Memory Box)
Die cut Black and Silver squares, with the silver one trimmed down slightly for a narrower border
(Nested Squares die set - Tonic)
White rectangular panel is embossed with stars
(Stars embossing folder - Cuttlebug)
Black and Silver stars are die cut, some are solid shapes, others "open", created by taping one die inside the other evenly before cutting
(Nested Stars die set - Die'Namics)
HAPPT letters, die cut 3 times in black and adhered on top of each other, then once in
white for the top layer
(set of HAPPY letters in different fonts - Memory Box)
"Birthday" is pc generated; printed in black ink on white card
Here's the sketch
I like the way this one went together, and I think it may be popping up again soon! I wonder how many times I can get away with it though?
Hope you like it, and also hope you are inspired enough to come and join in with us this time on The Sketch File
Today's London photos are of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London
My, it was such a busy day, the whole area was packed!
We were lucky enough to be on the embankment when the bridge was opened to let a big ship through - unfortunately it was one of those ugly cruise ships rather than a pretty "tall" ship, but you can't have it all, and it was good to see it go as it had been hogging the view over the river as it was moored alongside HMS Belfast! Hubby took this photo, managing not only to get just a tiny glimpse of said ugly boat on the other side of the bridge, but also no hint of the number of excited people there were taking photos!
Finally a couple of evening shots - just so pretty!
Thanks for looking, please leave a comment!
