**This is post #2 for today! So scroll down to read the other one too!**
NO stamps, NO coloring! ACK!!
I can't remember the last time I made a shaped card (if ever - I don't know if I've EVER made one???) but I've had this idea floating around for some time now and as my Dad's birthday was yesterday it was high time to finally make this card as he's been playing the guitar since before I was born.
I had seen an acoustic guitar shaped card in what I think was Papercrafts Magazine a while ago, and while I liked that I wanted to do something different.
Dad had shown me a green electric guitar he had got a while ago and in all my musings about making this card it was always green - so I went with Glorious Green SU cardstock (a color I hardly ever use).
Disclaimer - I don't know a THING about guitars. I had to google images of them to try and get a feel on the shape and all that. The rest of it I just made up as I went along.
The card fits in a standard A2 envelope - I just free-hand sketched out the shape with a pencil, cut it out with scissors then did the same thing with the white part.
A couple of circle punches, a small corner rounder punch, and some silver cord (SU!) and silver brads finished it off.
Tim's dropping the card off at my Dad's later today so I have no idea yet if he likes it or not! We'll see!
