60 Today!

Dave Kidman's Birthday Card from Ali - 086

Hi there peeps

I don’t think I’ve shown you this card before as I made it just before I went to Spain in September, for my friend to give her husband on his 60th birthday.  It’s an 8 x 8 card – not done many of these, but as it was a decoupage image I needed something bigger than my usual 6 x 6.   Other than a bit of matting and layering, I made a little pair of metal rimmed glasses to make it look like Dave (her husband), and some flower soft to give a bit of texture to the 'bowling green', and that's about it.  Ooops! Nearly forgot as I made it such a long time ago - the background red paper was originally plain, but I splodged some glue on it, and had to try and cover it up, so after a bit of cussing I thought I'd try a stamping something small all over the visible areas with Versamark and it worked - phew!  What a relief, lol.  I then covered up another little glue mark by adding some peel offs all the way around the edge, and voila, one card rescued.  Note to self:  Don't be over enthusiastic with the glue, lol.

Hope you like it.
