Papertake #31

I thought it was about time that I had another little go at a Papertake Weekly template, seeing as I’ve not done one for a little while.

At this time of year I always struggle for ideas because my two brothers have birthdays within a week of each other and in between is one brother’s wedding anniversary. I end up having to make three different birthday cards for each brother and two anniversary cards so it’s not in the least bit surprising that I run out of inspiration. The same thing happens at the end of June with my Dad’s birthday and Father’s Day the following weekend but in some ways this is worse because I have to do six different cards….all for Dad.

Anyway, I decided it would help matters along a bit if I used Katharina’s template and here’s my creation.

I’ve used ‘Crate’ papers from the Hampton Collection and some Bazzill card stock for the paper pieced computer, all edged with ‘Faded Jeans’ Distress Ink.

The Happy Birthday stamp is one that I brought at the stamp show at the weekend and is made by Stamps Away. ‘Brother’ is stamped using Line Dots Alpha stamps and both have been stamped in the same Distress Ink.

My card was finished off with some ribbon, a photo anchor, small brad and some faux stitching.

Thanks for looking.
