A Nice Tipple

It was my youngest son's 19th Birthday on Sunday - that makes me feel very old!  This is the card that I made for him from me and his Dad.


I used a topper and card stock from the Crafter's Companion Camden Town Male collection.   I had two toppers the same so I created a decoupage layer for dimension.


I die cut the stars and cut the 'SON' letters using my Memory Box Alphabet Tile dies - I cut them twice once from coloured card stock and once from gold Mirri card and then inlaid the gold into the coloured bases before layering them onto more gold Mirri.


Sorry for having so many photographs but I always find it difficult to photograph easel cards!


Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

This is great with the fun image and layering! Any 19 yr old would enjoy this! If you think you're old now, wait until your youngest turns 43!! THEN you can feel old :)

Hi Pauline, you do not have to feel old. My daughter is nearly 53 years old and my grandchildren are older than your son. This is life.
Your card is beautifully designed with these warm colors.
