A Birthday Card for Frits

Hello! I hope all is well with you. I'd like to Thank my friend Faith, who I know is a regular viewer of my blog and who happened to request a viewing of the Birthday Card that I made for my lovely husband Frits. So, this is the card I am showing you today.

I am hugely grateful to the inspiration from Karen Burniston the designer of this card. I just thought it was soooooooo magnificent that I would re-create it for my lovely Man.

I used Bo Bunny and Bazzill Papers to make this card. All ingredients I'll show below.

This is the card front - I have lots of pictures to show - I notice this one is a little out of focus apologies.

For those that know Frits, he is a wonder with his computer and his first call or actionable response will be his computer. He is also great at fixing all my IT issues - Mmmmmm My IT Engineer on hand 24/7!

This little charm makes reference to Frits' formative years when he went into the mines at 14 years of age. Today he proudly polishes his Fathers Mining Lamp that we display in our Lounge.

I used a Karen Foster Decorative Pin to keep the charms in place.

Inside the card now and you will see the Alarm Clock Pop Up feature of the card.

I also used a Kaisercraft 60mm wooden letter and painted it silver attaching this inside the card too!

This provides a better perspective of the right side of the inside of the card.

The sentiment does say "Happy" Birthday!

As it was a BIG Birthday I didn't put the ACTUAL number (70 cough!) on the card. Although truthfully he looks and ACTS younger than his years!!

I added this little charm too - as the card was "Made with Love".

I also added a little Car charm to the Tag here as Cards have also been a strong feature of Fritsy's life!

Just to complete the picture - this is the back of the card.

Here are the main ingredients that I used to make this card:


Thanks again for stopping by to see this card. Thanks again to Faith for asking to see this little creation.

Cards for Kevin and Haley

It's good to have the pleasure of your company and Thanks for popping in to visit my blog. Today I have two cards to show you. They are both of similar style and design but embellished in entirely different ways. Both were commissioned and there were specific requests for things to be included on the cards.

The first one I'll show you was made for Haley.

Here is the front of the card all folded together.

This is an accordion style of card which you can see to better effect in the next photo.

The card is fully opened and the frame of the card holds four panels. I used Photos I was sent by Haley's mum to add to two of the panels.

This is a close up view of the first panel on the card.

The next panel I used a Hero Arts Stamp with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I was asked to use Daisy Paper so this was what I used as the background to the stamp.

I added one of the other images of Haley and then used Alpha Tiles to Spell her name. I die cut with a Spellbinders Fleur de lis square die and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Ink.

For the last panel I used a Kaisercraft Alpha Rhinestone Bling Letter with three pearls.

This is the reverse of the card.

The second card is for Kevin.

Kevin likes Nature, Trees and he likes the Guitar.
Here is the card fully opened.

Panel one, stamped with a Hero Arts Classic Pine Tree and a Classic Winter scene. I  stamped several times to give the effect of a small forest.

I used a Kaisercraft 60mm wooden Alphabet letter which I painted with Kaisercraft Gold paint and then added some gold crystals.
The guitar and other stickers are from a pack of Jenni B Collection Music Stickers JBS119 purchased at Spotlight.

The last panel stamped with Hero Arts stamps and some charms from My2Angels. The sentiment was stamped using a JustRite Stamp and added to a piece of silver Mirri card cut to shape with pinking scissors.

This is the back of the accordion card.

Here are the main ingredients I used to make this card:

I hope you liked these two cards. Thanks for stopping by today:
