Hello friends! Today is my hubby's birthday and I made
a special card for him....
We are big fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings. I am so happy that I found this adorable Smaug image on google. I wish I knew the artist to give credit because I am in love with it! I made it into an svg to make hubby this card. I am getting better at making my own svg's using Make The Cut software. I wasn't sure if it was still supported but I emailed the company and they promised they would be doing more updates so I purchased it. This svg turned out terrific! I love that I can make any themed card I choose for my family and friends! I made it pretty big, sized at 5.5"x 7.5". I like to make my birthday cards big like the store bought ones so they don't disappear and look so tiny next to them when displayed, LOL!
I wish the pics did this justice.... I love the gold shimmery foil background that reminds me of dragon scales. I love the gold glittery paper for the heart and the sparkly Arkenstone (The Heart of the Mountain). I used a blue metallic pen to outline the stone for added dimension and then topped it off with iridescent Stickles. I added the gold coins for effect. I think they were from Create A Critter. I drew on the sparkly spots using an orange glittery gel pen. They would have been way too tiny to cut out. Its sparkly and shimmery yet still masculine! The label is from the Fabulous Finds cartridge and I wrote out the sentiment since I didn't have a stamp (I should have typed it out, I hate my writing, lol!)
I distressed the inside panel to match the label on the front. I used Jaded Blossom So Many Birthdays 2 for the inside sentiment. He loved his card and said it was the best one I've made, yay!
Thank you so much for hopping by!
I hope you have a blessed day!
