Another friend joins the over 60 Club! We joined him with friends and family to celebrate at a surprise barbeque at Crombie Country Park in Angus (Scotland). Beautiful weather and relaxed company - what more could you ask for?
I find it difficult to make cards for men but I had seen a card made by Maria Simms for Clarity Stamps that had appealed to me. I used this as my inspiration to make this card. No Clarity product was used here but I really covet the Gelli plate that Barbara Gray demonstrates and was used in the original. I have too many other purchases to get to grips at the moment. Perhaps I will succumb at the NECC in November!
The base card was made from Kraft Card. The papers are from my stash. I used Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets to create dimension. The text was produced on the computer. It looked a little "clean" so I smudged Walnut Stain Distress Ink on to the dotty paper and the white sprocket.
