Cards by Request - 16th and 50th Birthday

The card I made for Mr Fixit's workmate's engagement, see post HERE, was well received.

I received a request to make up another two cards - one for a 50th Birthday, and one for a 16th Birthday.

The 50th Birthday card was for someone who works in the Audio Visual industry, so I used an image of the speakers he actually uses in his business ;-)

Card was designed in Silhouette Studio, printed on shimmer card stock, cut out using the CraftROBO, highlighted with metal brads and elements were layered using foam dots.

next up, is the 16th Birthday Card
The recipient of this card plays drums and saxaphone ;-)

This was cut out using the CraftROBO, designed in Silhouette Studio.  16 was embossed with musical folder in Cuttlebug, stickers placed on acetate and cut out, layered on front of card.  Inside was embellished with some stickers, ready for a handwritten sentiment from the giver ;-)

I enjoyed the challenge to create these cards within such a tight timeframe - not something I want to make a habit of - but it was great to be cardmaking again ;-)

I would like to enter the above cards in the following challenges:
Speaker Card
Anything Goes Challenge - #87 Make it Manly
Craft Room Challenge - Something for a Man

Creative Card Crew - Birthday

16 Card
Creative Card Crew - Birthday
Songbird Challenge - 16 going on 17

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
