Visible Image "Ahead of our time" 50th Male Birthday Card
Today our friend celebrates his 50th birthday. As the postal service is a bit slower, I made this card a fortnight ago, just to be sure it arrives with him before or on his special day.
I knew the blue colour scheme I wanted to use(this friend spends a lot of his leisure time on the water) and although I had an idea what I wanted to create, I actually had a dummy run of the card using a background I was not so fond of. This gave me an indication of positions etc. As it was it turned out ok, so I may well use this "draft" card for somebody else in the future. This is the first draft of the card. Same stamps, just a different colour way.
For the main card, I used four Brusho colours (Ultra Marine, Turquoise, Violet and Black) to create the background colour.
I used stamps from Visible Image "Ahead of our time" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.
I used a silver, blue and purple glitter Signo pens and a white Posca Pen for areas of the card.
I typed out and printed the "You Sir, are fifty today!" then die cut and layered the sentiment. The two smaller stamped sentiments of "Congratulations" and "Happy Birthday" are from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.
