Well my Nephew Eughan( pronounced Ew-an) is 8 on Saturday, so I have been busy making his birthday card. I decided to try a "pop out" effect with this one.
The image is "Skater Ian" from the Greeting Farm, coloured with promarkers: Orange, Bright Orange, midnight blue, walnut, burnt sienna, satin, blush, dusky pink and cool grey 1. I cut the image out and attached it to a strip of acetate with ds tape. I looped the acetate over and tucked it behind the star to create the pop out effect.
I drew the star by hand as I did not want a perfect die cut shape on this occasion. I edged the star with orange peel stickles, I used alphabet stickers to spell out his name and again covered them in Orange peel stickles. I also found a metal "birthday" button and added that to the card.
Every time you ask Eughan what he would like for his birthday he changes his mind, so I am putting money in his card so he can choose his own present....simples!
