Husband's anniversary card

this is the card I made for my husband on our recent anniversary. I'm also using it to enter the June Win & Tonic challenge - the male card theme.

I used a screen card blank, and I'd not used this kind of card before but I wanted to use up some scraps of paper which fitted really well. The two sentiments are from the Miniature Moments set, and the letters are the inside cuts from the Pretoria set.

The side panels are decorated with the Tangled Posies. You can't see the back of the side panels but I embossed white card using the Amelia folder, dusted it with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then punched butterflies from the backing paper to decorate them.

I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by.

Brother's musical birthday card

I made this card for the June Win & Tonic challenge - the male card theme, as I needed to make a card for my brother's birthday.

My brother is really into his music so I used the guitar, treble clef and the perfect harmony dies and downloaded some free music paper from the internet to use as a background paper. I cut the guitar in 3 colours and did a bit of paper piecing on it. The sentiment is from the Miniature Moments collection cut in red with a grey drop shadow to match the guitar.

I cut a couple of inches off the front of the card to create a bit of interest and decorated the right side of the inside of the card.

Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by.
