My Time to Craft DT! Challenge #251 DL it!

I have been biting my tongue ever since the lovely Shell asked me to join the DT for My Time to Craft! I've hardly stopped smiling since!!!

So here it is, my first DT card, and the theme is DL It! I admit I had to look up what makes a DL card: it has to be 200cm x 210cm - that is the size of a third of an A4 sheet of paper. Tall and skinny, in other words (sooo not like me!!!)


It's a Father's Day card, done in a 'Retro' style using papers and stickers from Basic Grey's 'Hipster' collection. I mounted the stickers onto the same ivory card as the card base, and cut them out with a border, so I could put them onto foam pads. The circular one is like an old vinyl record, and I covered it with Glossy Accents. The twine came from Whiff of Joy

For those of you of a younger disposition, 'Rad' is short for 'Radical' and was a popular word of approval amongst all the hep cats when I was a child!

Go and see the gorgeous makes that my teamies have created, then have a go at 'Tall and Skinny' yourself!

:)

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
