This is the card I made for a nephew who celebrated his thirtieth birthday yesterday. Erik is a joiner and I decided I wanted to use the La Pashe flippin' Men DIY character to make a card for him. This card uses three different printed sheets from the La pasche The Big One CD On the front and front inside is the Flippin Men DIY character plus the frame from the DIY Framin' Card.
On the inside is the decoupaged scene from the DIY Framin Card.
You can just about make out the decoupaged elements in this photo.
On the back of the card is the character from the Flippin' Men half size sheet. The verse is based around the one on this sheet with a little bit of tweeking.
You've got drill skill
you're hammer handy
you do what joiners do best
the good news is
this is the day
for you to take a rest
so go and put your tools away
break out a beer or two
'cause it's a celebrating day
especially for you.
The hardest part of this card was cutting the aperture for the frame as I'm cutting knife challenge. The numbers and backing layers were cut using Sizzix sizzlets and Spellbinders dies and the little tools on the back of the card were cut using a Quickutz die. other than a few brads and kraft candy these were the only embellishments used. Hopefully Erik enjoyed his day.
Thanks for reading
