Did you all have a good weekend? I had a very pleasant Saturday afternoon & evening spent with my brother on his flying visit. It always cheers me up to see him & have a chat.
This week sees a colleague of Bob's reaching an important birthday & so I was tasked with making him a birthday card. I like if possible to link to the person themselves but this was a little difficult as we were not aware of any particular interests I could use. Whilst having a peek around Pinterest I spotted an idea that I felt I could tweak for my own use.
Here is the card
It's straight to the point!
I used a 7x5 base white card & some patterned papers from my stash. They were nice quality papers as they were the ones that I kept when I bought some copies of the Tattered Lace magazine. It was double-sided so I used the darker pattern for the background & the lighter side for the lettering & greeting.
The "Sixty" has not been created as in the Eclipse technique, but based on it. To achieve it I cut out 4 white of each letter & then a patterned one. Then I stuck them altogether & glued them to the front of the card. So they are raised but sturdier than just one layer of card & some sticky pads.
If you don't know what the Eclipse technique is - don't worry I am hoping to introduce you all to it in the new year.
This afternoon Bob & I are off to Liverpool to visit my friend Caroline who recently had a hip operation. So we are popping over to see how she is getting on.
That is all from me for today.
'Bye for now.
