Card Games



I had a request for a male 40th card and the spec was pub games, so i set about browsing through my stamps and a freebie set came out trumps it had just the images i was looking for.
I cut out 3 pieces of white card and used a corner rounder to shape the corners, i then stamped out the images using memento ink and coloured  the card using the SplodgeAway mat and distress inks. the papers are echo park. i hand cut the beer glass and paper pieced the frothy head on to the top of the glass. Everything has been highlighted in glossy accents and diamond stickles.
Ive had a little card making drought (about a week or so) and had no time left i had to make this card as its needed for the weekend, but it was good to get back into the craft room, its given me back my mojo.  Ive still got a 21st card, 70th and christening card to do by the weekend so whilst I'm in the mood id best make a start on them too.
I'm sorry for the quality of pics I've had to use my phone and the lighting is rubbish.
