Oh Dear, I Missed A Birthday!

Ooopsy deary me, I missed the birthday of a male friend of the family & had to get a card done ASAP!

Time fall back on  one of my old faithful tried & tested download sheets!


This sheet is from Craftystash & was designed by the lovely Debbie Lauder!


You can find it here!

The side stacker sheet comes with a greeting & a blank panel for your own greeting!
Also supplied in the download are the two DPs you see on the card! Fab eh!

Boat 2

The stacker was cut out & the edges were distressed with Weathered Wood ink  (as were most other elements on the card) before being built up using pinflair glue! Whilst I waited for this to dry I assembled the rest of the card!
I used an A4 sheet of recycled card for my base & simply folded it in half to give an A5  landscape card.
I added a matt using a  sheet of white linen texture paper, then the DP! I made a panel using the linen paper & the other DP. I added a border which was cut with a Martha Stewart punch . This was added to the panel along with a ribbon.
I matted the stacker & greeting on to the linen texture paper & added to the card.

To finish off I made a little rope with two buttons, two beads & some raffia.
Hope you like it! It’s great to know you have something there for emergencies!
