Try it on Tuesday Celebrations

Hello Everyone and thank you for your visit to Jumbled Crafts.
 I'm sure many of you have come to see what the new challenge is at Try it on Tuesday. This time we have Celebrations as the theme so it will be great to see your makes and what they were made to celebrate. If you need inspiration the rest of team have some wonderful ideas so I hope you pop to TIOT and see what they have made. Also while you are there check out the few rules and then you can be sure you are following those with your entry.

This is a card for a friend's son to celebrate his 50th brithday


He is a keen cyclist and goes in for racing events so I found the best racing bike for 2016 and used a picture of that for the background and the main feature.

The card photograph is a bit of a cheat really because when it was taken the card was in kit form. My friend has always said she would love to be able to make a card herself so I made up a kit with choices and had all the doubled sided tape and the foam taps on the back of the pieces so that she could assemble it herself in whatever way she liked. I am also going to let her try Distressed ink around the edges of the outside and the inner so that should be fun--I had better take some spare white card just in case.

Hope you will join us with your take on the theme

Love Chrissie xx

  19. Looks like I'm late for the party. Your card to your son is wonderful. So appropriate and so individual.

    I wish I had kits for my Christmas list. I'm having a terrible time with the insides and addressing them. I'm glad you are helping your friend. I'd love to have your kit making help!
