male card

HI again, can you believe it 2 days running I have a post, hope I can keep it up, at least all cards are done for this side of Christmas, just start with January birthdays now LOL.

I was asked to do a Santa 70th birthday card for one of the girls in work, who's father is going to be a Santa, she wanted a Santa but not Christmassy! then I saw this kit by A-Manda Creations from Digital Scrapbooking Studio which fitted the bill, love the suntanned Santa and the little reindeer LOL.  The Welsh translation is Dad & Grandfather - Happy Birthday. The Santa is decoupaged so is the tree and reindeer.  I thought the kit would have been used as a one off, but I have used this kit for quite a few things, so money well spent.

With this card I am entering these challenges     Green & Red plus sparkle   Winter birthdays  Birthdays in December   Lets Celebrate   Anything Goes

I suppose the following card would do for 2 of the challenges too. LOL

I did this card for my nephew who was 18 last week, I wanted something to do with jeans and had girls jeans in a kit I bought years ago, but nothing with a boy, so I used Gina Jane from DAISIE denim pocket and added an action in PS of goldy stitching by Atomic Cupcake, which digi stitches any shape brilliantly.  I added a grey layer and also with an action from Atomic Cupcake, which made it look like fabric.  I thought about what he would have in his pocket and added a digi comb, a phone and a ticket to Swansea football match. I 3D'd the pocket and the inserts.  Quite a simple card, and I was surprised with his delighted reaction.
