Today is my Father in Law's birthday and as he is a keen golfer that of course had to be the subject of his card.
I was very lucky to be the winner of some fab images from Daisy Doodles earlier in the year and loved this gorgeous image called Fore! Freddy. I coloured him in Promarkers and created a second layer with his head and a third layer with just his hat. These have been raised up on 3d foam squares. Don't you just love the snazzy stripes on his little cap? I have added some bakers twin in my favourite read white and blue with a golf bag button on the top.
The papers are from a collection of freebie papers by Nitwits with a magazine which have all been distressed using a small inkpad. The birthday sentiment is a rub-on from Pebbles Inc. The September sentiment is a freebie from Cindy Cross at Bluebirdflats.
Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A5
Image – Fore! Freddy by Daisy Doodles
Patterned Paper – Nitwits Collection magazine freebies
Sentiment – rub-on by Pebbles Inc, September digi by Bluebirdflats
Embellishments – Bakers twine, button
