Good Morning all, i hope you had a good weekend.
So its time for another new challenge over at Make My Monday, the theme this fortnight is:
I made this DIY themed shutter card for my brothers birthday, he is an engineer and often fixing something or other.
Using the tattered lace shutter card die i cut the blank from white card. Then using the matting dies in the set i cut them from wood panel pattern paper. I then die cut lots of tools, cogs, nuts from silver holographic card and turquoise pearl card. I then cut the handles from the tools and glued onto the silver version.
Using mixed alpha dies i cut 'Mr Fix It' from green cardstock. Id had the landrover decoupaged made up for months and thought this card was perfect as my brother also drives a landrover.
Showing the left hand side of the card, i added the landrover so it looks like its driving out of the card.
Showing the right hand side better. Shows the colour better.
And the back of the card, i die cut another woodpanel patten paper in a paler colour so that the greeting can be written on easily. I then added all the left over tools, die cut birthday sentiment.

Black A5 cardblank, i then matted corrugated metal pattern paper onto copper satin card, added screw top brads to the 4 corners and matted onto the black base. The robot topper i printed out twice from a daisytrail kit and decoupaged the 2nd one and added glossy accents. I placed him behind a black glossy cog frame and matted onto copper satin card before adding the the base.
