Male, Party, Celebrate


I missed a week creating a card to send to our son down at Uni.  Not that it really matters as I hadn't heard that he had received any of my other cards so sent a prompting text on the weekend.  Now he has received his cards and appreciated them.  He also commented that is mailbox was full…..funny thing that. :-)  Apparently, the people that used to live with him used to collect the mail regularly but since they have moved out I think he was thinking the mail would still appear like magic. :-)

So this weekend I decided to use a card pack that was given to me a while ago.  Challenged myself to only using what was in the pack to create the one card.


This is what the pack included one envelope, one card blank, gingham ribbon, all the die cut shapes and origami shirt plus a sheet of rub-ons.


I soon discovered I have left it a little long to use this pack as things were a little old…the rub-ons came apart and some of the sticky things were no longer sticky.


This is what I came up with.  Our son is in his last trimester of a Filming course and it is pretty full on and they have their graduation films due.  However, instead of doing a grad film, as our son enjoys editing, he has permission to work on the other grad films on his course as his grad assignment.  So he has eight films to work on.  When I was making this card I was thinking of him at the end of his course wanting to go out and celebrate that it was all completed.  I distressed the edge of the card and die cuts, placed the word 'Party' over a tie cut out.  So this is my result only using what came in the pack.


Before I sent the card, I decided some doodling around the edges was needed and a spray of my Silver Smooch.

Have a lovely day….it looks like being a wet one here.  There is a monsoon trough brewing out in the Coral Seas so the winds are up and the rain is coming down.  Which means finally normal weather for this time of year and our seasonal creek is flowing.

  4. I love the finished card with the doodling and spray! My rub-offs always end up like that, that's why I don't buy them much anymore. How's the rain? We're back in another heat wave, got the eldest back at school today and the boys don't start until next Monday. Have a great day xx
