Commissioned Birthday Card
A customer wanted a special birthday card for her brother and the topic was trains. For me I dread trains/buses/Tigger and tigers but you have to give what the customer wants don't you? I used a Victorian image from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Companion Triple CD set. I also did a snapshot of the image so I could make an insert in Word, add the picture but printed it off twice so I could decoupage it on the insert for something different. I used some wire edged ribbon I was given with criss-crosses which I thought depicted the crissing and crossing of railway lines. The backing papers are from my stash and the cards is finished off with the insert, a sentiment off the computer and some card candy.
This card fits the following challenges:
Our Creative Corner - Masculine Birthday
CD Sunday - Days gone by
Crafty Cardmakers - Inside out
Incy Wincy - Blast from the past.
