Male 21st card


This one's for an order, for a male 21st card - it's for a regular customer of mine who just doesn't do cute, and generally prefers cards without images on... so I have to get myself out of my usual comfort zone when I make her cards.  I find it often gives me new ideas though, when I work on something a bit different, so it's a good thing really.

The card base is A5, with MME papers and DCWV and bazzill cardstock.  Spotty buttons from my stash, and I bought the digi sentiment here - like yesterday's card I've opened it in photoshop and added the 21 in the centre.  I've used promarkers on parts of the sentiment circle, used glossy accents to make it look a bit badge-like, and then mounted it on some nestie stars.

We finally have snow here, they've been saying it'll snow for days and it finally started last night.  The boys are very impressed!  Dex, who's nearly 3, can't pronounce the 'sn' sound properly, so when he came downstairs this morning he looked out of the window and got all excited shouting 'GLOW! IT'S GLOWING!' bless him :o)  And he calls snowmen 'glowmen' which I think is a far better name for them lol.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

  10. Hi Lisa, fab card, love the colours. Aww bless him, how cute is glowman and I agree, a much better name for them and that's what you'll probably call them from now on in your house. Hope they both had a great time playing in the snow.
