My dad has a birthday and I struggle with cards for him as its hard to do something different when he has limited interests, he likes watching TV and horse racing though just for entertainment value no longer because he likes a flutter. Presents are even harder but he does like his tea and biscuits and I found a fab gift of a mug with matching saucer/plate just the perfect size for biscuits.The mug set is brown and has white spots so I used that as my inspiration for colour scheme. The style I decided after seeing some sneak peeks of the new LOTV trios I thought I would follow that as an inspirational design theme.
I cut 3 and embossed 3 circles and hand drew the letters in black fine tip pen. I added some spots to the letters and coloured them in with promarker. I added some faux stitching around the disk edges.
I used a square white base card and added some LOTV paper from a Christmas pad it mimics kraft with white dots, not just for the jolly season. I decided to make a concerted effort and use some of the many peel-offs I have and framed the paper with a gold border and added a happy birthday peel-off sentiment too.
The 3 disks I stuck diagonally across the card and its done, Quick and easy and quite clean and simple too and I also think masculine too.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
