My Father in law is crazy about golf. I saw this topper set on the Hunkydory site months ago and thought it would make a great card. It is called Live, Love, Golf and you get an A5 die cut topper sheet, An A4 Base card and an A4 sheet of decoupage to complete the topper. It is no longer on their website but several sites still have stock.
He is also very, very proud of his garden. It is pretty big and he spends a lot of time working in it and the lawn is his pride and joy.
Imagine That Digistamps has a great set this month Lawn Ranger which we have had for free in the DOTM Progressive challenge. Alternatively you can purchase it for a reduced price HERE. You get loads of images and sentiments and it is a really great set.
I wanted to try and incorporate both themes into the same card. I have recently made a tri fold card and though that might work well. I have made a lot of cards for him over the years and try to make them different. He hasn't had one of this style before.
I joined two 5.5" square cards together to create the base. The front and back section have been covered with some green paper. The topper has a gold border around it so I used some peel off stickers to add an edge to the card base to match. The topper is perfectly fine to use in it's own but you can also use the decoupage sheet on the image. This make the front of the card quite thick as in some places there are 5 layers. That was a lot of foam pads and small cuts required and took ages to do but the results are worth it. You can see the dimension better in the last image.
The middle section of the card was covered with the card from the Hunkydory pack. A layer of gold card frames the scene I created using an image and sentiment from Lawn Ranger.
For the final section I added a frame which was the 'waste' from the diecut panel. The sentiment is from Lawn Ranger and has been die cut with a CREAlies scalloped border die.
The image below shows the card opened up so all panels are visible. I showed it to my hubby and he said it looks like it took a long time to make and he wasn't wrong..... but he likes it so is a happy customer ☺
