'Time' birthday card for the worst time keeper

The recipient will most certainly see the irony in this card :-)

So, the ingredients - where do I start, there are so many.
I am not one for sticking to one companies products and I mix & match on a constant regular basis. 

To start with I used Ali Reeve's Stamp & colour card and inked over with various shades of brown distress inks. Then I used a clock mask and lay it over the card and misted with water. Lifted the mask then rolled over kitchen towel to reveal the masked design. 

I then used Sheena's 'ageing beautifully' stamp set to create the cracked edges, the splats and the distressed corners. What a great set of stamps these are. 

The clock itself was cut on the silhouette cameo from a file that you can get from this site 
free svg blog    Can I urge you to go for the zipped file, there are 250 + images on it (I am not associated in anyway with the lady, just a very happy recipient of the files and there are some fab designs on the site)

I used the white silhouette marker pen to do the sentiment and the shape of the label before cutting it out.

The verse was sourced on the internet and credit given to the author, Nate Hawk. I printed this onto safmat and rubbed it down onto the front of the card. 

I then matted & layered with gold mirri card from Create & Craft.

Now, when I mat & layer with Mirri card, I am conscious of the price of a sheet of mirri card and also the wastage. If am matting underneath a layer of paperstock, then I DON'T gut the mirri card, but, as in this case, if I layering card stock over the top then I DO gut the card.

I simply turn the card over, draw 2cm round each edge with a ruler & pencil and cut it out - simples. 

You get so much more mileage for your mirri then.

Of course, it is entirely up to you how you do this or even, if you do this at all.
The rules aren't set in stone
