Birthday cards for a friend's husband!

I do like an exploding box!
A couple of birthday cards for a friends husbands 50th.

I used watch parts for the car wheels....what fun!

A bit different for me - used up some chipboard letters
by covering them with gold leaf.
Really loved this vintage style bicycle paper.


  1. Lovely exploding box Claire, a real treat for someone special! Hope you're all well. Ruby x

  2. A great the exploding box Claire and I love the masculine feel of the card.

  3. You are a lady after my own heart with exploding boxes, Claire. This is gorgeous. I love the masculine front. Might have to have a play with something similar for my dear Hubby's 50th next year!!!!
    Thanks so much for your lovely comments and sorry I haven't been around much. I'm glad you are enjoying your felt time. I was with my friend Sylvia some time ago when she posted you some yarn for your felting!!!!! Small world.
    Hope the family are all doing OK and you are staying safe in this awful weather.
    Enjoy the weekend.
