O.A.P Special

This card has been made to order for my Uncle's 60th Birthday in October this year. He did not want to have a party to celebrate, so he, my Aunty and my Mam and Dad are going to Gran Canaria for a weeks holiday. So once I'd found out this little piece of information and remembered I had this Bugaboo image, the card sort of all fell together lol.

Attention To Detail:

The image has been coloured with my promarkers: sandstone, caramel, peach, mango, orange, azure, skyblue, yellow, red, berry red, pastel pink, dusky pink, oatmeal, almond, green , blossom, cool grey 3,4 and 5. The tickets were stamped with my Whimsy stamp and then personalised with my alphabet stamps and distressed with my sandstone promarker.

I wanted to use warm colours on the card, but not too girly. I have also made a tissue lined presentation box to put the card inside.


Card - Terracotta, ivory (Paper Mill Shop).
Stamp - Bugaboo Digi stamp and sentiment, whimsy ticket stamp.
Design Papers - Basic Grey & DCWV Taj Mahal.
Promarkers - as above (Joanna Sheen).
Extras - Gems (Anita's).


I'm entering my card into the following challenges.

Craft Your Days Away - #1 Anything goes.
Die Cut Dreams Challenge - #81 Use a Digi (bugaboo stamp) and a rubber stamp (whimsy tickets) together.
