Finally managed to get a bit of time to do a post. I have got so caught up in the Olympics. The opening ceremony on Friday was excellent, and I enjoyed every minute of it. We have done ourselves proud. I am now watching the swimming and well done to Rebecca Adlington for bringing home a bronze medal.
Anyway todays card is the 2nd of 4 birthday cards that I need to make for my nephew's birthday in August. This one is going to his eldest brother to give to him.
I will warn you that there are a few photos and unfortunately the photos do not show fully the bright colours. Probably down to the dull and grey weather that was about this afternoon.
I decided to make a large gatefold card. The finished dimension of the card is 8 x 8 inches so I made my blank using an A3 sheet of card.
All of the images used are from Pollycraft. I purchased the 100 digi package when the store closed and there are some lovely ones in there.
I really loved this stripey paper with the stars on. It was lazing around at the bottom of my stash box. Think it came as a freebie from a magazine many moons ago. I simply matted onto black cardstock and added some card candy.
Here is the inside of the card.
And a close up of each side panel and the centre panel.
This was a mammoth colouring session as I used so many images but I think it turned out okay.
All the papers used were from my stash pile that I have had for ages. I used my distress inks on the inside paper panel and round the image on the front of the card. Added some buttons, string and pearls to the inside panel for a bit of interest. I also added glossy accents to all the eyes for a bit of shine.
