Valentine's Day is also my Father-in-law's birthday. We celebrated a special day just for him on Saturday. He is a musician just like me and plays gigs regularly doing shows and re-enactments while singing and playing his guitar at Elementary schools. I thought it would be fun to make a guitar card. I really like the responses to these card in a box cards. This is my third one. They are extra special when they open up. For more info on this card you can click here . I wanted to use my Imagine machine and I used my JT Cartridge for the first time.
The papers are all printed from my Imagine. I just love the masculine feel of this cartridge. It is especially challenging for me to make guy cards.
The guitar is a cut from the Hannah Montana cartridge. I added some red glitter to give it a bit of sparkle hopefully without being too sparkly. The black knobs on the neck of the guitar are from Michaels Recollections embellishments.
I took pics with and without the flash. It was early morning so I didn't have the best lighting in my room. I made the guitar quite big at 1.5 inches wide which extended the neck well past the top of the box. It made fitting it for the envelope a bit difficult. I want to try the smaller version that fits in an A2 envelope but I am afraid it might be too small. This card stands out because of it's size I think.
I handmade some heart candies and baked my special recipe chocolate cupcakes. They were a hit and I only ate one. (Proud of myself...it's hard for me to resist chocolate and I am now on the quest of "shedding my winter coat" so to speak :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! I will participate in the following challenges:
