A Barbeque Birthday....

Hi There...

I apologize for my tardiness in keeping my blog up to date this past month. My creative juices have all but evaporated. I've managed to produce a few cards for special family occassions...but other than that my mojo is very lacking.

I'm hoping to try and rectify this during June. Wish me luck...LOL!!!

Today I have a card that was made for our DS's Birthday. He loves to barbeque...thus the theme for his card.

The above is the card front. The following is the card opened up. This is an easel card...which is really quite fun to create.

I've used a really cute digital set from Nitwit Collections for the papers and embellishments. I've put my own spin on some of the items...like the barbeque. I've added 3-D dimension by layering and adding glossy accents and cutting with an exacto knife.

I've also used a lot of faux stitching and distress ink to the paper edges. The tags were computer generated and then attached to decorative circles made with Spellbinders Nestabilities.

The above is the computer generated saying in the centre of the card. I thought our DS would appreciate the "play on words". As I mentioned above...this really was a fun card to create!

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you will take the time to become a follower. I'd love to hear from you.
