I haven't made a shaped card for a while, and when I was commissioned to make a card for a DJ's birthday I thought that this fab Juke Box would fit the bill. I've used this image before on a card for my brother Andrew's birthday, but I've never used it as a card base. I cut 2 juke box shadows at 6 3/4" from white card and adhered them together down one side to create a hinge. I then cut another shadow from black sparkle card and adhered it to the card base. I then created the juke box from various mirri and holographic cardstock, layering some pieces with foam pads. I added the DJ's name to the front (yes, I had to ask if that was the correct spelling!It's Mathew with one 'T' apparently!)
Three 'LP's' were cut from black mirri card with red labels and adhered inside the card as a finishing touch.
All cuts- Nifty Fifties
Thanks for visiting today!
Edited to add:
I've just figured out how to change the date on my posts-they are all running a day earlier than they should be, but I've put it right and the posts will show the right date and time in European format (ie 21/01/11 not 01/21/11)after today-hopefully!
It's our Wedding Anniversary today...21 years!...Cripes!!!...Time flies when you're having fun doesn't it?!! Happy Anniversary Dear!
I used a bog-standard card base for my card and some fab Papermania 'Elegance' paper. I kept the design simple (in my opinion the ONLY way to go on cards for men!)but it does have a little flourish on it. I used beautiful gold cardstock that has a slub silk look to it,and some plain mirri cardstock (which was embossed after cutting)The heart flourish was adhered to a striped band running across the card to which I added a piece of gold ribbon. A heart shaped brad was adhered with silicone glue to the centre of the heart aperture. This adds a splash of colour to the card.'With Love' was cut from mirri card then shadowed with gold card and adhered to the card with foam pads..on reflection I think that the sentiment is a tad too big but never mind.
I added some gold card candy to complete the card. You can't have a look at the inside 'cos it's private!!!
