Clock Birthday Card

This is one of the cards I made for my father a year or so ago. It is made out of craft cardstock from one of my card and envelope packages. I also used black 65lb cardstock, white 65lb cardstock, printed vellum, stamped images, and glossy accents.

I stamped the center of the clock face image using the Tim Holtz “Life’s Possibilities” stamp collection. I then cut out the image and backed it by black cardstock. I placed it on top of more chipboard and traced around the circle, adding another 1/4″ of a circle around the first one, forming a ring. I fussy cut the chipboard, circular ring out and placed it and the stamped clock onto a piece of black cardstock.

I then made two alarm bells by drawing a template of it on white paper and then cutting it out. I traced around the template onto black cardstock and cut the two bells out. I simply added two strips of black cardstock behind the bells, connecting them to the back of the clock base. And then added two more strips of card stock at the base for the legs.

I added glossy accents to the center where the stamped clock face was, giving it the look of being covered by glass. I stamped the words “Just Celebrate” and “Happy Birthday “using the Tim Holtz “Simple Sayings”, Stampers Anonymous stamp collection.

I placed the clock over top some printed, transparent vellum. I placed a piece of white cardstock behind the vellum so that it would show better. Some black cardstock was used as the cover mat. I cut out the number 70 using black cardstock.The inside of the card was left pretty simple so that I could add my own message.

This was a really simple project. I hope you enjoyed this share.

I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art. Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make. Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on. Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
