I hope you are all well. I would like to say welcome to my shiny new members ~ thank you for joining. Also a very happy Independence Day to all of you over the pond in the USA.
Today I am sharing a card I made for my Step Brother who is 40 today, he lives by the sea and used to have a boat, so I thought this image was perfect.
I had the idea of making it look like you are looking through a ships porthole, but it took me a while to work out how to do it (I know I can be a bit thick sometimes)! I eventually ran the metallic card stock through my Grand Calibur a couple of times using my Nestabilities circles. For the waves I played around with a circle punch, because do I have anything that will cut or punch wave shapes in my massive stash? ~ Of course not!
I was very pleased with the result and those glittered numbers I have used for the 40 are fabulous, they came as part of a free gift and I'm hooked, so I had to rush away and order every colour available ~ LOL!
