My Card for Capt Tom
Good Morning Ladies,
This week is dragging, not sure why, maybe as last week was such a short one! I honestly thought it was Thursday today!
Another bright and sunny day, really windy though, great washing day here!
Today's card is my Birthday card for Captain Tom Moore, for his 100th Birthday,
I used my Stamping Up Number Dies to cut the letters and their matching stamps to add the ink to which I added to the Gold embossing powder and then heat set.
I chose the colours of the Duke of Wellington Regiment which matches the tie he was wearing, I did struggle to find the right shade of Burgundy though, I had to dig to the bottom of my card stash.
I decided that I would make the ribbon edge look like the regimental tie, to give a more masculine look to the card. The rest I kept really simple.
After making this card I had to do a full reorganisation of my craft room as it looked like a bomb had gone off, there were bits of card all over the floor from die cutting all of those 'Save the Date' cards, the stalks from all the flowers were everywhere, the trouble was that I was so exhausted when I finished making them that I just couldn't face tidying the mess! The last couple of cards that I have made have been created in a small space that I made by pushing everything else to the edges of my desk, does anyone else do that???
I hope you have a lovely day however you are spending it,
Love and hugs to all,
