Buon Compleanno

Ciao Blogland. Yesterday was my mate Tony's Birthday. He is Italian, hence the greeting.Now, I know it's difficult to make cards for us guys and I found it equally as difficult to put something together but focused on a couple of things he enjoys I.E the odd round of Golf followed by a couple of pints.
It's quite a simple card to put together and here's how.
I stamped my image, coloured it with my Copic Pens and then glazed it with Glossy Accents. I let the whole thing dry overnight before cutting it out.
I embossed a piece of Silver Mirror card using the Craft Concepts Folder - Sun Rays.Adding my stamped image to it, specifically trying to get the Pint in the centre of the rays.I then made my Side Stepper card (instructions can be found here) using some plaid card stock
and added the images to the largest side.I used my Gypsy machine to weld the letters of my sentiment together before cutting them out twice on my Cricut Machineand layerd the two sets of words together for dimension and strengthand then added them to the project.
And there you go, finito.
Thanks for checking us out and have a great day.
See you soon
