April is full of family birthdays and a wonderful reason to spend hours happily creating !!
Today it is my brother's birthday and for him I choose the Hayes Manual Camper van by Kanban.
I used an 8x8 square card blank, covered it in this lovely gold paper (cheap and cheerful with no brand label) and chopped off the front open edge - about 2" I think. I matted the topper onto core'dinations brown card, distressed it a little and used foam pads for some depth.
I used a Martha Stewart punch to add interest and some Anita's Glitterations stickers in gold.
"Tim" gold letters completed the front but the camera has failed to bring out the embellishments - lol - next goal a photography lesson !!
For the inside I stuck a strip of camper van card to the right
exposed edge matt, layered the greeting topper and added more punched border and glitterations stickers (I hate the word peel off !! YUK !!)
I stamped Kanban cogs around some white card matted onto gold paper and added a stamped sentiment and Tims's name.
The little envelope is cut on Cricut Wild Card Cartridge and is hiding pennies from heaven aka my very hard earned cash (giggling).
