The first one is for her Dad-in-law. It's actually a card I made for someone else who asked for a card for her husband. She gave me a list of things her husband liked (rugby, football, wine, NFL and golf) but they weren't in any order. I made the card for her and personalised it with his name. I showed it to her and she basically said it was a nice card, but he didn't actually play golf, her just liked it! I was really annoyed, as I really didn't think (and still don't think) that it matters if he plays golf or if he just likes it (just because I bought a butterfly picture doesn't mean I am a butterfly!!) Anyway, thankfully I was able to salvage the card and have now been able to use it for this purpose. I used a cream card blank and made a landscape easel card. I covered the base with a golf themed 12x12 scrapbook paper and the front of the card with shades of green cardstock. I used a golf topper and matt and layered it onto green cardstocks. I decorated the card using green gems and golf embellishments.
The other card I made for her was a train themed one for her Dad who is a train enthusiast. I've never done a train card before, except Thomas The Tank Engine! So I wasn't entirely sure what to do for it. I managed to get a set of train decoupage images from my local craft shop which I built up using silicone glue. It's not a medium I use often so unfortunately, it's the cheap smelly kind I have! It did the job though and has made a really sturdy card. I used various gold border peel offs, red and gold mini gems and textured paper and card to make the card. I printed the sentiment off on cream shimmer card from the computer.
