Hello everyone – Jackie here today. My brother is going to be 60 very soon (how did that happen so quickly!) so I have bought him a bottle of champagne to celebrate which gave me the inspiration for this card.
Die cut a pretty edge border in dark pink card then glue to the reverse side of a prepared panel measuring approximately 5.5″ x 3.5″ or 14 x 9cm. Attach the prepared panel using 3d foam pads to the front of a top folding A2 card blank 5.5″ x 4.25″ or 14 x 10.7cm
Trim another panel measuring 4.5″ x 2.75″ or 11.5 x 7cm then splatter with watercolour paints, here I used colours yellow, blue and purple. Fix the panel to the front using more 3d foam pads.
Build the Monster as normal and ink around the edges to give him a bit of dimension. Add a couple of pieces of card to the reverse side of the monster then fix him to the card front, this will raise him slightly from the panel.
Trim down another edge border and add to the right hand side of the panel. This step can be done in step two: It was a detail I added after I attached the splattered panel.
Die cut all the words, shadows and numbers twice. Glue them all together then add them to the card front, the layering will add dimension and texture.
Finish off by adding the champagne glass. Die cut the glass from vellum and use a yellow marker to add dots on the reverse side, fix the glass to the monsters hand using a tiny piece of double sided tape.
That is my card for today, You can make this work for any occasion and change the colours to suit you.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go. Happy crafting – Jackie xx
