Quickutz Presents Die and GooseBumps!

Hi, I hope you are having a great weekend.

March is busy card making month for me because so many members of my  family and some friends have birthdays during the next four weeks.

So I have made start on a couple of cards and this is a completed birthday card for my grandson,Ethan, who will be two this month..... his brother Finley will be one this month! Yes, my daughter has her hands full with her two small sons but seems to love every minute ! Rather her than me! lol 


I have coloured in The Hanglar Image with my Copic Markers and then added some shade with Polychromos Pencils.

I am really getting the hang of this sewing 'my card stock' lark, as you can see, there is a fair bit of stitching on this card. ( on the inside too!)

The corners are cut from Quickutz dies and the Presents are Quickutz as well.

I also ran the larger,red,corners through a Quickutz 'Goosebump' folder/die called 'Dots' It just gives the corner a little bit of texture.

The sentiment is a Stamp from the LOTV range.

Later,I am going to write some text and add foil to it on my 'Foil It' Machine for the message on the inside of my card.

I added some 'interest' to the card with a border using a Martha Stewart punch.

After a while I ran out of space on the card to 'fling' anymore stuff on too lol!

  So that's it, job done!

I find my mind is drifting away ( nothing new there then! ) from these OTT cards that I have been making and I am planning one that will be totally different .... please come back and have a look during the next few days!
