Violin Card

Monday, 3 November 2008

I was asked by a colleague at work to create a classical music card for a 21st birthday. I had already decided on the notes and the name tag, but then it looked a bit bare. I need a musical instrument and decided on a violin. I used a cut file by Jen C (Cricut forum), but because I didn't have the cartridge to cut it out, I cut all the parts out by hand and strung the bow and violin.

Cards for Men

Sunday, 2 November 2008

These are the hardest cards for me to do. I try and keep them plain and neutral and only do a theme if I'm asked. They can easily be adapted for son, brother etc. Most of these were made for Fathers Day. Sorry about the quality of some of the pics, but our camera is poorly and at the hospital.
