A crane for happiness

I just noticed this post in my drafts folder. My brother in law’s birthday was in June, so it’s another “old” card, and even an old post too!

(edit: The post date was set on august, that is probably when I wrote the post, I was allready wondering why it didn’t show up! I adjusted the published date now so it should show where I expect it! )


This was a birthdaycard for my brother in law.  I didn’t want to make the typical men card: brown, dark colours, cars or steampunk. His wife is Kim from Viltalakim, so he’s used to lots of flowers and colours in his house, so I made him this. Daqadoodles13_07_05_220518

The background was made with distress inks. The cogs are roughly coloured wiht pencil, and I added a feew accents with paper pens.

  1. Hey Debbie, I like that this isn’t a typical “men’s” card 😉 Also like how you cut out the crane and sentiment. Nice embellishments to the background pattern.
