Welcome to my blog, which one day, hopefully, should be filled with wonderful handmade card ideas! My goal is to create a blog with ideas for some easy, 'make-able' cards for you to take inspiration from! (It's what I've always needed to help me!)

Josh's 18th Birthday

Here's my second post for today...
And it's going into Di's Snippet Challenge, because I managed to use some papers that I could never seem to find a way to use up :)
I've always had trouble finding ideas for males, and I have to say that my Mum came up with the idea for this one!
So my cousin, Josh, is very into his music, and is a very good music journalist, and I thought I should make a special card for his 18th this weekend! And I also managed to use up some of my plain bits of paper, and quite a bit of gold string!
The card was plain white - 26 x 10cm - And I did a guitar shaped 8 and a guitar neck shaped 1. the 8 was just plain blue, thick paper and the 1 was plain red. I stuck black pieces of card under the holes in the guitar body.I cut the head out of plain brown paper too. I used 6 gold strings and stuck small pieces of card over the top of the ends to neaten it up a little.


  1. This is absolutely brilliant! I Love how you've incorporated his love for music! Looks like he could strum that guitar. Fabulous!

  2. Hi there! We missed you in the playground - great to see you back and with such a fabulous card too. I bet Josh will love his card, so clever of you Carys. Di xx
