Happy Friday everyone! We are having a beautiful breezy day here today in Montreal. A wonderful change from the humidity. I made a birthday card for a friend who’s turning 50 tomorrow. I combined an old photograph of him in his younger days, and a stamp from Bugaboo featuring the adorable “Gus”. Who doesn’t love that “old fart”!
I made a recessed window card, and placed his “younger days” photo in the middle, and added photo corners made from the card stock, it gives it a framed look. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from C.C. Designs. I computer generated the “50” then layered it on cardstock cut with the round and scalloped Spellbinder dies.
This is the inside with the “Gus” image which I colored with Copics, and then cut and layered using the oval and scalloped Spellbinder dies. I’ve had this designer paper for ages, and it was perfect for a male card. I’ve used a Martha Stewart punch for the green border, and the Couture Diamond Trellis embossing folder for the cream card stock layer, and then a Doodlebug button to finish it off.
This is a close up of the digital image, it hides the back of the recessed window, and adds some dimension and fun to the inside of the card. I think he is going to get a real kick out of this card, and at the same time reminisce about his younger days!
