Sorry no Oldie for Friday to share today, I didn't have time to look back through my old photos to dig something out. I had an unpleasant couple of days this week when I was off sick with a tummy bug but I'm feeling much better now. Unfortunately, Iona doesn't feel so good now so I hope she doesn't come down with it.
Tonight's card is one I was asked to make for a work colleague to give a golf loving relative to celebrate his retirement. I know she doesn't like anything too cutsie so I scoured good old Google and Pinterest to come up with a suitable digi. In the end I plumped for a set from Imagine that Digi's by Kris and a matching set of digi papers. If you haven't ever come accross this website I'd thoroughly recommend it, they have no problem dealing with Europe since the tax laws changed and Kris was extremely helpful. You can find the website here.
I used a pre-coloured golf bag image, although there is an outline only version in the set too. I like how this toned together with the papers. In the inside of the gatefold card I used a ball and tee image and a fun sentiment from the same set which I die-cut using a bunting die to look like a flag at a hole on a golf course.
I was a bit wary of trying out the digi papers as I didn't have much success with my old printer but I was really happy with the results - the colours all look sharp and bright. I used some of my Neenah card to print out on. I probably could have used something a bit lower quality but I was frightened it wouldn't cut nicely in my paper trimmer.
I've used X-cut dies throughout and the card has only been embellished with a few toning buttons.
My colleague was very pleased with the card and hopefully the recipient was too!
Have a great weekend whatever you have planned. I just hope my girl perks up and has a good weekend too!
