Moving on ,,,,

It is my friend's hubby's 50th Birthday today and I made this card for him ,,, I know it's last minute but I completely forgot ! Luckily he is here on holiday so he will get in it time !!! :-)

I used the same Hero Arts Rosette stamp that I used on Friday for the Totally Papercrafts DT card, it is almost the same card actually ,,, just darker and more manly :-)I stamped the image with black pigment ink and embossed with Black Sparkle EP, the paper is from a Basic Grey Oliver pack and I paper pieced the ribbons.

The numbers and text were cut out on my now working Cricut !! I just plugged it in and went in search of the trouble shoot guide ,,, and when I got back it had turned itself on ! I must’ve scared it into action by threatening it with a screwdriver !! :-)

I glued the numbers and sentiment on with glossy accents, very unforgiving if you manage to get them in the wrong place like I did ,,,, oops ,,, the numbers could have been placed better ,, do you think he will notice ?? :-/

Top Tip Tuesday ,,, 3rd entry ,,, Birthday

tip: after cutting out an image that has been heat embossed zap it with the heat gun to re melt the edges, then when cool run the tip of a marker of similar colour around the edge so the white card doesn’t show.
