Pamela has given us a good opportunity to make a card to pop in the box for perhaps a husband, son, grandson, nephew etc,. etc,. We never seem to have enough so now is a chance to make at least one.
I have chosen to make one for my Great Nephew Ellis. Some how it seems very aging to have a Great Nephew. It sounds like something from a novel .
As you will see from the card this Great Nephew isn't very old yet:
stitch patterns already on my computer so I chose the one you see and decided to make it into an easel card - just to add a little more interest for him.
My 'CD' part is background card for the image and his nameplate/stopper and for the 'tyre tracks' at the side. It came from 'Big One Backgrounds CD' by La Pashe. For the actual card itself I have used my standby 'sand look alike' card so that hopefully it adds to the scene.
'ELLIS' and Happy Birthday are die cut using red glitter card and the number 3's are transparent glittery peel off's stuck onto backing card and more glitter card.
It is a wee while until his birthday so it will truly be in my box waiting for his big day.
