This time of year can be a bit of a nightmare in our house.
We love the darker nights and snuggly evenings as the
temperature drops, but...
I have a son who has never been happy about birthdays, or
any event that puts him in the limelight (yes including Christmas)
This year he is trying. He has agreed to go out for a quiet meal...
(and he may even order a dessert)
He will be 25 and this is the first year he has chosen to
"do something" just for his birthday.
I want to jump up and down with glee, but I can't,
that might scare him off, so instead I have made him a subtle
Birthday card XXX
I was so excited I actually stuck the images on the wrong way
hahahahaha...so how to save it?
The easiest thing would have been to cut the whole front off
and glue it onto a fresh card, but that's not always an option.
So instead I turned it into a kind of easel card...
by creasing and folding the back section in half, inwards...
then adding a raised strip on the back of the decorated section
to act as a stopper...
Turned out pretty sturdy :D
You can't see it on the main picture, but I added
shimmer pen for a subtle bit of sparkle .
This card was made using
and is my DT project for
I would like to share it with the following challenges;
