Yesterday was hubby's birthday (he's my toyboy actually - 3 weeks younger than me), and as always I struggled to come up with a birthday card idea for him. He's not into the stereo-typical male things like sport, cars, bikes, computers etc so I have the same problem every year. What he does like though is old clocks (amongst other things) so finally decided to make him a clock themed birthday card.
Here it is
I took the photographs into Craft Artist, cut out the clocks themselves and then changed them into drawing and added different effects until they looked the way I wanted them to. Next I used one of the clocks with a couple of items from Daisytrail Steampunk digikits to make a background paper. I used the second clock for the main image and added a couple of embellishments, also from the Steampunk digikits. When I made up the card I added both the clock and the sentiment as separate raised toppers.
So Tom got a very personal birthday card.
Here are the original photographs:
Thankyou for calling in.
