I am celebrating one of my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Friends, Kelly Kent 5th Year Anniversary and she has decided to celebrate with 24 of her friends by hosting a Blog Hop - all with the theme of HAPPY!
I am sharing a very special card that I made for my nephew's 21st birthday. It is a 5 3/4" square card which I don't make very often - only for special occasions, it also is decorated inside and has a matching envelope which I made with the Envelope Punch Board.
I chose the Nail It stamp set and matching Build It Framelit Dies as Jason is a Wood Machinist at Pfitzner Furniture which make all handcrafted wooden furniture here in the Adelaide Hills (and he is in the process of making me a 10-12 person jarrah kitchen table, which will make hosting my card classes so easy).
I was inspired by a card by Rochelle Blok as I was busy creating a 21st Scrapbooking Album at the same time so I was really struggling with time to create in the last 4 weeks. I really enjoyed the Watercoloring, I used Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the images in Chocolate Chip as I though this would blend in the brown tones than Black and then used the Aqua Painter to blend through the colours.
