A magic birthday card for a little boy and sneak peek 6

Today's card is a magical card created for my friend's little boy. The instructions are taken from Splitcoaststampers but I altered the sizing a little to use A4 size cardstock. Unfortunately I didn't make a note of the new dimensions but I'm sure that I'll make this card again and when I do I promise to include them in the blog post. In the meantime you could always trim some 12"x12" to the US dimensions.

This card gave me an excellent excuse to use the For Father set before it retires, as the little dog is super cute to colour in. This set is still available to order (as at 12:48 on 25/9/09) and has a 50% discount. After 30 September 2009 it disappears from our catalogue.

Stamp sets: For Father, Fun and Fast Notes, Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Versamark, Black Stazon, SU Watercolour Crayons
Other: Eyelet, Medium Window Sheet (sneak peek!)
Taffeta Ribbon: Chocolate Chip
Non-SU: Nestabilities

The stars on the front are stamped in Versamark. It's a really fun card and all the adults have asked how it works but of course a magician never reveals their secrets!

The sneak peek Medium Window Sheet is the acetate used in the slider. Pop back on Sunday to see how I've used this to make sneak peek 7, my anniversary card to DH.

Here is today's sneak peek 6 from the serene Garden Dream set. I had to photograph this quickly at lunchtime because a colleague spotted it and snapped it up from me to send to a friend.

Hope you have a great weekend.
