Male birthday card - going for a hike
I defy anyone to include all that without using the internet or photos!
So, this was my effort. As a number of people would be signing the card, I made the base A5 portrait.
I downloaded and printed an excerpt of a map of New Zealand that included the Kitakita falls (a favourite spot, apparently) and distressed the edges using distress inks (vintage photo/walnut stain) and mounted it first onto brown and then onto a lighter beige cardstock. Onto the base I stuck a photo of a tray of beers (after a long walk, surely welcome) and a photo of a rucksack and boots. Using my My Memories software I removed the names from a photo of a signpost and added my greetings to the spokes, then stuck that onto the map too.
Before mounting the whole thing onto the card base, I wrapped some string around it, which was tied in a knot.
The final touches were the peel off photo corners, which I stuck on the corners of the map page.
