It was No2 son's 17th birthday on Bank Holiday Monday. He's a big fan of Jack Bauer so I thought that I'd have a go at making a '24' themed card. I downloaded a pic of Jack Bauer from Google Images and printed it onto lightweight card, cut it out and then adhered it to some green mirri, cutting it out again leaving a border all round. I matted a piece of camouflage paper onto more green mirri and adhered it to the front of the card. I adhered Jack to the bottom left hand corner with foam pads. I cut out some crosshairs and a grenade from gold/green mirri and computer generated the sentiment. The '24' was created with 9 rectangles cut from gold mirri, and with the aid of a '24' DVD cover for reference, the ends were cut at angles so that the rectangles fit together in the correct way. I then adhered the rectangles with foam pads onto some red mirri and cut around the whole thing. It took me several times to get the cuts right- I used scrap paper first. The completed '24' was then adhered with more foam pads to the front of the card. The inside was covered with more camou paper and crosshairs along with the rest of the sentiment.
