WOYWW, a happy birthday card!

Hello my dear friends!

I hope that all of you are safe,  away from high waters and other bad things happening around the globe! We are at the moment just having rain,  day after day - some areas are  flooded, but most of the country is not so that is lucky! Of course the damage in the woods is still very much visible even though foresters are trying to do as much as they can to clean up all the broken trees and branches!
I haven't been doing much crafting just a card every now and again! This is a card I have made for my DBF who's birthday is Friday - he doesn't look at my blog much so I can show you what I have made!
I ordered this amazing die from Dies to die for! It is a Poppy stamps die and is supposed to be a background die so it cuts out all these happy birthdays but it is made very cleverly so you can use both what you cut out and what is left but without all those bits falling out and then ! 
So what I made was I used the die and cut out the "background" ( it turned out to be the for ground)  in silver cardstock and then used Derwent Inktense Blocks to make an ombre background! I think it looks really good !

I also made an envelope with my WRMK envelope maker! It sort of matches the colors on the card!
I didn't really plan how the colors would be peeking through the die but I think they turned out to be just in the right place! Also I think it is quite a nice card for a man! No flowers or anything just the fact that it is a birthday! Ha, ha...
Have a lovely week - I will try to come around as much of you as possible! I do have a few birthday parties to attend though! :-))
If you are wondering what that WOYWW is in my title go here and find out!

Lots of hugs to all of you

  6. Awesome card, what a useful die! I think there is barely a day gone past that it hasn't rained over here- I feel so sorry for all those affected by the flooding, it must seem never ending. Have a great week, hugs Shaz #38 xx

  10. That's a fantastic card. And I agree that it's very unisex. I can see you getting a LOT of use out of the die, too.

    Have fun at all those birthday parties (grin). Happy belated WOYWW from #3.

  11. A very nice card, and yes I too like the way the background shows through the die cut lettering.
