THE MAESTRO'S BIRTHDAY CARD!!!

Hi there fellow blogsters and friendly peeps!  I thought it was about time I posted the maestro's birthday card on me blog!  It was his birthday at the beginning of October and when we were young(er) ;) he loved Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath etc etc.  I caught sight of this digi in Dr Digi's House of Stamps On-line shop,  it made me smile and I thought he would love it - wasn't wrong!

Anyway this is the card I made for him - and I was sooo pleased with it.  Those 'vinyl' records were really easy to make, I cut some circles (using Tonic's Circle Layering die set) in black shiny card and then drew around the end of a pen on some white card.  I stuck the two circles together with some Cosmic Shimmer glue and once dry I pushed a hole through using a pricking tool.  I did a little bit of 'scribbling' on the white circles to make them look like record labels - job done!!


Ingredients

7" x 7" Kraft Card - Anna Marie Designs
Davy Dunderton digi image - Dr Digi's House of Stamps On-line Shop
Background paper - 'The Stack - 6' : DCWV
Black shiny card from snippets box
Red card - American Crafts Cardstock
Circle Layering Die Set - Tonic
Virtuoso Music Die - Memory Box
Flexmarkers
Sentiment typed on laptop and partially coloured with Flexmarkers

I really am happy with this one and will be posting another card I made with a Dr Digi image very shortly.    They are great images - sometimes rather irreverent, but that's half the fun of them.

Thank you for popping by and having a look at my card, hope you like it.  I am very grateful whether you have managed to leave a comment or not.  

As the weekend will soon be here (another one closer to Christmas!!) I hope you have a good one!  Take care please, especially if you are out there in the cold and wet taking your fur babies for walkies (only whispered that word - just in case there ears are flapping!) those leaves can be slippy!

Bigs hugs to you all

  1. Good morning Sue. What a fab card for those men who are in to their music. This would be loved by our son-inlaw. He is well in to his music, infact the two grandsons would love it too. I think a investment in that memory box music die might be worth it. Husband has got the job of walking the dog today ( it's horrible here). Hazel xx
