Hubby's birthday cards

Morning all!! Well it's a lovely day here in sunny Scotland! I hope those of you who have today off work enjoyed your lie in!!!!

Today I thought I'd share with you the cards my girls and I made for my husbands birthday!!
The first card is a springy card I made after two kind ladies on the DoCrafts website sent me the template - thanks very much Leigh and Nike - much appreciated!!!
The stamps and papers were all from Clare Curds Signature Range - stamped in black ink, clear embossed and coloured with whispers brushmarkers. Card stock from stash. Faux stitching added by pricking with a pokey tool and then joining the dots with the fine tip of a brushmarker.

The second card is one I made for my parents to give to my husband. I wanted to make it totally different from the first (it's hard to find one theme for a man's card - two was tricky!!). He loves sailing so I used these large black peel off's I found. I stuck them on acetate and coloured the back with permanent pens. Finally I added a few shell beads I had and a (not very straight!!) border of black glitter glue.

Lastly, here are the cards my lovely girls (aged 4 & 6) made for their Dad!! As you can see, the cardmaking bug has struck here early!!!

Enjoy your Easter weekend - don't eat too much chocolate (oh well, if you must......!)



Wow Claire they are all wondeful.Dianne xx
