1st A Cut Above Card of 2021. The words you really don’t want to hear when you have not really woken up, ‘Can you make a card for Gordon? It’s his birthday today!’ I have been making all sorts of cards in the past couple of days, but none would be right for the afore mentioned ‘Gordon’.
No matter, I received some new stamps yesterday, so it would give me a chance to get some of them inky. I was particularly pleased that one of the new sets was ‘A Cut Above’. This is PERFECT for Gordon’s Birthday, especially the image of the man lying in a hammock.
I wanted to feature some Sale-a-Bration product too, so thought I would use some of the ‘Oh So Ombre’ paper as the background. As the images are garden inspired, the choice of papers was easy!
I has such fun colouring in the image, although I used a lot of colours, it would work just as well with a more limited palette. I work on the basis that there is no point in having Craft supplies and then not using them, so I do! There are times when I will restrict myself, this just wasn’t one of those!
As I am in a bit of a Fussy Cutting Phase at the moment I decided that the card would definitely be dimensional. As the recipient is local, layers were not going to challenge the Royal Mail, so I included a few layers of Dimensionals. Of course, as it was for a Birthday Card, I needed to include a Birthday sentiment, which was easy as there is one in the stamp set.
And for once I remembered to add a liner with stamping on it. Not only did I add a further sentiment, I also added some more of the image from the front of the card. I do enjoy having a picture on the inside of the card as well as the outside. Of course I coloured that too! So, do you think Gordon will like the card?
