I made these 2 cards a while ago for 2 important men in my life-the 2 Jeff's. The first one is like my brother whom I call V.J.(for Vancouver Jeff). and the other is for my ex whom is shared 16 years together and, although the separation was sad and painful, our friendship has weathered that storm and now he is freinds too with my current spouse and vice-versa. The first card I used stamps of the alphabet(I wish i had all of them). I coloured them with my tombow markers and mounted them on this great brown glitter paper-well, more of a sheen than a sparkle. I added the gold stickers around the border too. The 2nd card I mounted it on several different pieces of paper which I think, goes along with the Whimsy challenge. I made the background paper too on the kraft coloured paper. I used the cut out for the nestibilities and stamped "Happy Birthday" in Egyptian gold powder. I used a gold pen for the edging and some purple crystals too. I can say they enjoyed their homemade cards.
