Tag Archives: birthday card for men

All the harlequin!


This card is a variation of a previous post – Daffodils and Ferns.

To make the main image I did the exact same thing – I covered a piece of card with acrylic paint and used the same colour paint mixed with texture paste and applied through the mask.

This card however, I layered differently and kept it quite simple.


I used the same Harlequin paper together with a yellow layer which I ran through a Harlequin embossing folder.

I also edged each layer with black to add definition.


Perfect for the men in our lives.



Birthday Card for Dad


June for me is birthday season, so I can now share my Dad’s Birthday Card.

I was at a loss what to do for him on his 82nd birthday so as he is ex RAF and likes planes, this is what I did…

I used my new die set from XCut.

I cut everything in white cardstock and coloured everything using watercolours…

I watercoloured the background…

I watercoloured the components…

and assembled…

Then put it all together…

The plane and ship are connected on a split pin, so they actually move around the world…

Absolutely appropriate for an 82nd birthday…I think!
