Ask 5 years

On Saturday Ask turned 5 and of course I had to send him a birthday card. Since I recently received a shipment of Clearly Besotteds Stamps, I wanted to try out the Ahoy Matey! set for Ask’s card. It is a really fun set for birthday cards and my only complaint is that it doesn’t include a “birthday girl” stamp only “birthday boy” – can’t girls be pirates too? I was inspired by a card by Stephanie Wincott for my card.

Since I am still working with the techniques from Online Card Classes’ Mask-erade, I did some masking using masking paper: I stated by stamping the masts and sails, the cut out masks for the sails before I did the ink blending that constitutes the sky.

The waves are made using a die from Clearly Besotted and I can see myself using it for many scenes using eg. Lawn Fawn or Create a Smile stamps. I underlined the water theme by randomly dropping some tiny glossy accent spots around the ship.

I liked that Stephanie Wincott had tied some twine around the card because it adds some dimension – so I did the same. Only I didn’t using baker’s twine but just plain read thread. I added Ask’s name using some stickers from my stash and kept those red as well – there’s something very pirate-y about the colour red.

Jeg er på vej igennem billeder af kort, som ikke har fundet vej til bloggen, og jeg fandt blandt andet Asks fødselsdagskort fra maj. Det er et shakerkor, hvor jeg gik all out på temaet med skyer, fly mm.

Jeg lavede kortet lige efter, jeg havde fået mit shakerkit fra Papertrey Ink, og det er da også lavet med dies og pailetter fra kittet. Men derudover brugte jeg papirer fra Echo Park, bogstaver fra October Afternoon samt mine ynglingsskyer fra Papertrey Ink. For at få skyerne til at ligne dem, der er på det mønstrede papir i baggrunden, skar jeg bundene af mine udstansede skyer.

Jeg har forsøgt at holde kortet i en ikke alt for voldsom højde, hvilket jeg gjorde ved kun at bruge 3d-puder under shaker-elementet, mens resten bare er monteret lige ovenpå hinanden.
