Outback Santa

Hello again, 

Today brings us to the final day of the month long Holiday Card challenge over at Beccy's Place and today the challenge is to do what you love. I love the Aussie Santa I used on these cards and had another two printed out and ready to go, but decided not to make another card with Sydney City as the backdrop, this time I grabbed some white core card stock and got ripping to create layers of the Aussie bush as a backdrop blue sky the green of the Aussie bush and the red earth of the outback with a new Windmill die, a very familiar sight once you leave suburbia. Many windmills have the property name either painted or roughly cut from the vane others (I've seen lots) with Southern Cross on the vane. 

Here is my card:-

Bond James Bond

Hello again,

So this month I had a big push to make a couple of 40th Birthday cards for my brother along with all the Christmas cards, after looking up some of the popular films, shows, toys and games of 1977 I settled on a suit card with a James Bond image for the first, James Bond The Spy who Loved me was first released in 1977 and can still be found in DVD format, which my parents gave him last weekend, a surprise for us that he intends on waiting to open his gifts and cards until his real birthday a few days before Christmas. Since he doesn't see my blog it is safe for me to share.

I was inspired by this card which I found on Pinterest but gave the card my own twist.

Here is my card:-


What I used:-
White Card blank 12.4x17.4
Black card stock
Patterned paper from Echo Park Style Essentials
Tiny James Bond sign from here
James Bond images are an old download from Papercraft Inspirations (no longer available)
Black bling from stash
Silver glitter card
Nesting circle die
Elizabeth Craft Happy Birthday die
Memory Box Parker Alphabet die
Buttons and Silver star brads
Signo White gel ink pen
