Thanks as always for popping in and browsing the card for today!
This was made last week for a friend Ann – she had an unusual card request – something for her male friend – maybe slightly risqué/saucy and said he had a schoolboy sense of humour
After asking a few crafty friends for their thoughts I eventually decided I would use a lovely cd that came out last year – or maybe even 2010
It is called Sue Janson's Women Are Never Too Old and its by Card Creations Plus.
I decided on this particular image as I think sometimes men as all talk – they flirt but should a woman turn the tables and respond they run a mile....this image sums that perfectly I think....
So for the card I printed the sheets – sadly when its set up like these cds they don't fill the pages so it was 3 sheets of printing...
I folded a sheet of black A4 card into half to create my card blank....and matted the base image direct to it – because the base layer was so big I had no need for mirri board or anything and I didn't want to trim the design just to get an extra mat in!
The decoupage was easy enough to cut out but I did find it boring at times as some pieces seemed to need cutting out for all layers!
Once it was all cut I stuck them in place with sticky pads – shaping the top layer as I went...
To decorate I used bright blue Debbi Moore glitter for the 2 ladies eyeshadow and white glitter to form the strip on one ladies Lycra shorts
Glossy accents were used on the ladies lips, their hair bands and the trolley with the cake – oh and all the cherries too - I popped an orange card candi in the centre of teh trolley wheel
I wanted to do something different to make the cream in the cake really stand out so raided the Christmas crafts box and found just what I wanted – Aleene's Glitter Snow – I used a wooden coffee stirrer to apply the gungee substance and then peeked it up to make it look more like the cream was been squeezed from the cake....
I offered Ann a few different sentiments to chose from so simply attached the chosen one with double sided tape to finish
I think this made a perfect card – I know I was pleased with the finished result and Ann was over the moon with it too!
Her recipient thought it was spot on so we were all happy
