Ninety.

5:56 AM

So last week I was a happy girl because Glen came back and surprised me!!
Haha he actually pretended to be upset with me the night before and the day itself to keep me from this surprise!

My mum and Bree were both in on the surprise except for me..so imagine the look on my face when I saw him at my door?! I was actually screaming at him (literally) for making me feel so horrible for 1.5 days but haha after seeing him of course I was super happy and so all those didn't matter! Hehe.

 Happy Glen with the lovely bouquet which he bought for me hehe. 

Happy me hehe. Glen really pampers me soo much hahaha. 

Roses in really pretty shades of cream and pink, with cute crown decorations! Hehehe.


But anyway, I was working on Glen's birthday card for the past few nights before he came back to Singapore! He's a huge fan of Liverpool, so I wanted to do a birthday card that was related to Liverpool!

I must confess that this design is not my own, I googled and found the card selling on etsy, but I decided to handmake this myself! 

Here's the end product!! Quite proud of myself HAHA. It takes about 3 hours to do this!

Materials you need:

1. Tracing Paper
2. Printed Liverpool Emblem and T-Shirt Design (on A4)
3. White Card Paper
4. Red Paper 
5. Super sharp pen knife (You can get the pink ones from Artfriend)
6. Cutting Board 
7. Determination and tons of love 

So firstly, you'll need to trace out your printed designs onto the tracing paper, to trace it on the white card!

After tracing on the main card itself it should look like this! If the lines are faint, just go over them again so that you can see the lines clearly.

I just had to take a picture of this hehehe. 


And...here comes the tough part! You'll need to use the super sharp pen knife to carve out the design.
I made a mistake and bought a paper which was way tooo thick haha. Took me eons to carve out the design! Try to get a lighter gsm paper instead, but not too soft if not the card will be too flimsy!

And tadahh!! Also, I'll like to suggest for you to carve it inside out instead, meaning on the reverse side so that the cut outs will be cleaner. This means that you'll have to trace the reverse design on the inside of the card so that you can carve it out from the inside! I noticed that the cut outs were not clean enough boo. Perhaps I had used a paper that was too thick. :( 


 The red paper is to be placed underneath it so that the colors of the liverpool emblem will show nicely! Hehe.

You can see that the cut out is not very clean. :( But I tried my best hahaha.


Cut the red paper to fit the first page and glue it underneath!
You can also change the design accordingly.
Good luck if you are intending to make a card like this! :D

No guesses on why I was attracted to this haha.
