My brother's 3 boys all have birthdays within a few weeks of each other, and this year they are 15, 17 and 19...Here are the cards I've made for them:
This one is for my 19 year old Nephew. Last year, on his 18th I used the same Mexican character, without the horse! Papers are Papermania (have had them ages in my stash.) I added some Card Candi dots and doodled some faux stitching around the edges.
I used promarkers to colour him, Nesties to cut him out, and added some wobbly eyes to his horse.
I decorated the inside using the same DPs and a nestie-cut panel for writing on.
I will enter this card (A) into the folowing challenges:
This one is for the 17 year old. I used more Papermania papers and embossed a panel of Kraft card, which I inked to enhance the dots. Some Card Candi and Bakers Twine, along with a couple of buttons and faux stitching (again) to finish.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and once again added some wobbly eyes then cut it out. I made a sentiment on the computer that says 'Hap-PIE Birthday!'
The inside is decorated using the same DPs.
I will enter this card (B) into the following challenges:
Finally, this card is for the 15 year old. Once again I have used Papermania DPs & Card Candi. This time, as well as some doodled faux stitching, I have added some REAL Hand-Stitching! This is the first time I've ever done this, and it is a bit wobbly, so don't look too closely!!!
The image is coloured with Promarkers, and has the added wobbly eyes too! I have decorated the inside of this one too, in exactly the same way as the other 2, (but the photo I took was blurred so I haven't added it to my post.)
I will enter this card (C) into the following challenges:
Since Royal Mail have hiked their prices I will be popping them all into the same large padded envie and sending them all together to save on the postage!
Thanks so much for popping in today.
