Good afternoon all, 
Thanks for popping in today .
How are things going? 
Are you glad it is Friday? 
I have our Groovi workshop to look forwards to tomorrow..
And we have a new lady joining us...
I promise that I will be gentle.!!!!
Today , I am sharing a Birthday  card with you...
I made it for my lovely father in law...
We share the same birthday...
In fact I was born on his 21st Birthday 

I wanted to do something a bit different , and I had seen Eileen Godwin 
make something similar...(thanks Eileen for the inspiration ) 

I started with a piece of stencil card and a moon mask 

I then created some sky 

Followed by some land . 

Then came the Lavinia horses...
Karl’s Dad loves horses , and has a couple of them . 

I added a couple of trees and some gentle landscape 
Next came the die cutting .

First of all I cut out the letters in black card.
This gave me the spacing, plus the letters to go below my stamped letters...
Hopefully , all will become apparent..
I must say , this is just my take on this, 
I’m not sure if it is how other Crafters make this type of card. 

This is the set of alphabet letter dies that I used.

Next , I proceeded to die cut the letters out of my stamped design...
I matted and layered the stamped card onto some black card. 
And then I added the black letters into the spaces...look. 

This then gave me a base to add the stamped letters on to , so that they are raised up. 

All that was left , was just the Happy Birthday sentiment from Clarity. 

I was really pleased with the way it worked out...
I think , I will be doing this sort of card again...
Lots of possibilities..

So , I will love you and leave you ,

Have a great weekend 
Much love and hugs 

Jo. xxx
