Magnum gets an inking

It's Nicole's fellas birthday today...Happy birthday Ben!

So what do you do when you have a dreaded male card to make? Why, you ink up a Magnum of course lol!!

I grabbed my Add-On Magnum and Magnum Add-Ons (confused?) and set to work. I chose the present and balloon from the Add-On set to 'add-on' (get it?) to Add-On Magnum, inked them up with Momento black ink and coloured him with my Copics.

 I used Bazzill cs, SU! Kraft cs and Bo Bunny pp from Hayley for the base. I punched an oval using my SU! punch and .... check me out... SEWED around the oval! I stamped happy birthday on a white piece of cs and stuck it behind the window (thought it might be too tricky to sew both kraft cs and white cs with such narrow edges...err on the side of caution!).

 I used GA on the balloon and the box on the present. You will probably be shocked and horrified (I know I am) that you won't find one grain of glitter on here. I won't be giving Ben the card until tonight so there still is time lol. I'd better get it signed and in the envelope before I change my mind!

First a circle now an oval....I'll be running up wedding dresses next lmao!

I hope he likes it...and you too.

I'm going to be stuffing envelopes for most of the day ... hope I don't get any paper cuts!

Have a great weekend (here already!)

Catch ya later x

Brilliant card! Look at you and your sewing! My bl**dy machine (only a mini one) doesn't work properly so it's all hand sewing for me at the moment! Your colouring on Magnum is fab!

Is that a Nestie you used for the "sun" affect matting?
