A Rocking Birthday


Birdie Brown has a monthly challenge and is very generous with her freebies. This month we get to work with Rocking Doggie and the sentiment You Rock. They made the perfect partnership for an image from Di’s Digi Downloads that I bought to make a card for my Brother In Law. He has a drum kit and how often do you get a cute image with a drum kit?

I coloured the images and sentiment with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and added an extra decoupage layer with the little doggie and drum on the front image. The card from is covered with red paper form a magazine freebie. I added a panel of card from the Family Ties pad and wrapped some Airmal twine around it from Dovecraft. This panel is stuck down with thin 3d foam pads to allow for the thickness of the string underneath.

The image is matted onto some scrap card and then stuck down with more 3d foam. The sentiment panel is probably one of the very oldest embellishments I have from HOTP and it is embossed with gold foil on it. I know they were blooming expensive at the time, hence I’ve never used them.

The inside of the card has more of the same red paper and then the Rocking Doggie has been fussy cut and is rocking down a storm. The sentiment has been cut using a new Nestabilities D-lite die which is more ornate for small sentiments.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A5
Sentiment – You Rock by Birdie Brown
Paper – Family Ties First Edition pad and the red is a freebie from a magazine
Tools - Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, 3d foam, Nestabilities D lite die Labels 1
Embellishments – HOTP sentiment panel,  airmail twine by Dovecraft
Techniques – Die cutting, decoupage

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-

Birdie Brown – June Challenge
Di’s Digi Designs – Show us some Summer Fun (Music Festivals)
Squigglefly – #25 One Long & 1 Short (long panel on front and a short one for sentiment)
