Well my Dad is 75 years old today and this is the card that I have made for him. I’ve taken the design from a card Sue Wilson had on display at Ally Pally last year as it is quite appropriate for my Dad, he likes trains! 😀
I’ve used an 8×8 card blank, otherwise I wouldn’t have fitted it all on! All of the stamped elements are from the Creative Expressions Vintage plates, and then everything else is Tim Holtz products, the papers, inks and the dies. Absolutely love Tim Holtz!
The cog wheels have been die cut and then embossed with the distress embossing ink and powders, which gives them a very real rough feel and uneven coverage, which is really quite authentic.
I’m going to enter this into the following challenges:-
Allsorts – Happy Birthday to someone Special
Charisma Cardz – No Flowers Allowed
Crafty Catz – Card for a Man
Creative Card Crew – Dimension
Here Come the Boys – Anything Goes
One Stop Craft Challenge – One for the Boys
Anyway, we’re off to Coombe Abbey later for a posh Afternoon Tea to celebrate Dad’s milestone, and if the weather stays like it is, it will be super duper 🙂
Will be back again soon
