Happy birthday old bean! card - Day 68 of my 366 day challenge


Happy birthday old bean! card - 
Day 68 of my 366 day challenge

Hi craft addicts!

For today's post, I wanted to do this card as I think it is great fun and makes a great card for any man young or old.

 Happy birthday old bean! card -  Day 68 of my 366 day challengeSo, I first of all chose the main focal image which is man on the vintage bicycle from Hunkydory's "Charming Chaps" card collection and stuck it on to some black card to that it stood out.

I used some of the "Bowler hat, bow tie and Moustache" paper from the "Suits you Sir" pad from Craftwork Cards and glued it to the bottom half of a 7" x 5" white card (again from Hunkydory) and placed 2 black wavy strips of Peel-off stickers (from Craft Creations) to cover any wonky cutting out!

I then used one of the sentiments from the collection "I'll get the Ginger Beers in..." and placed it at the top of the card with some foam pads to raise it up a bit. (i'd glued it to a strip of black cardstock and cut round it.first). 

As this was a birthday card, I added a "Happy Birthday" sentiment to the bottom (the small square topper says "Dad" but of course this could be for anyone.

The insert was one from the same collection but cut to fit the card 

For future cards, I am going to design a different one in CAP2.
