Hi Everyone, my card today is for my "old" friend who is now 75, she is 6 months older than me and it's been a joke for the last nearly 60 years, so of course I HAD to remind her how old she is.
I had used this kind of sentiment before and I know it's used in blogland, so I just worked out how many days her 75 years would be. Then after I sent it, I was thinking about the numbers for some reason and realised I hadn't used the leap years, it should have been 27,393 - drat! Silly me! OH! Well, I hope she doesn't work it out and realise I made her younger. 😁 It's as I said "whose Counting".
I started with the die cut, not really sure what I was going to do, then coloured it in DOs, I layered it onto gold mirror card, after sizing it to fit an A5 card. I added a corner piece from the off cuts of the die and cut a piece of gold card with a stamen die, it sort of looks like a flower?
I looked for a digital image, as I wanted something funny and chose this fun image. I printed it out after adding the sentiment in Photoshop. I coloured it in DI's the same colours as the leaf die cut. Then die cut it and inked around the edges. I added a die cut sentiment in gold card. It gave her a laugh and no she didn't work out the days! Whew!
