A Last Minute Card!!!

A card for my DDIL's stepdad which had to be made last night to post this morning. I don't know him well enough to know his hobbies or interests so I just printed the font out into two inch squares using JFR Ringmaster at size ninety. Not sure if you can tell on this picture but I filled in the letters with Powder Blue ProMarker. I grunged around the edges of the letters with a StazOn ink pad and added self adhesive nail heads to finish it off.
Have to say that in real life it was quite a striking card with it being on an 8x8 blank.

Loved being down at the cottage today although the delivery men did have some trouble finding us. We got there in the end though and the new sofa and chair are installed.
I could so live down there. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and the wildlife was out in force with squirrels  playing on the lawn. It was beautiful and I feel like I have had a day's holiday.
No Ruby tomorrow so I aim to be making cards all day.

Thanks for dropping by.

  1. I can imagine just how striking this card is irl. It's very 'smart' and perfect for someone you don't know too well.

    The cottage does sound quite idyllic. Glad you had such a lovely time there today.

  2. How brilliant and clever to be able to print out the letterds and create a 'last minute' card.

    Your cottage hideaway sounds just perfect
