Uncle....You've been Framed

**************************
Gosh!! two cards and two posts made in one day....I don't believe it, lol.

These are the last two cards for son's birthday.  This first one here, made and delivered in the nick of time.
I wanted to vary the colours of his cards and ended up choosing this BP from...again...Papermania - the Sunshine pad.
I'm still being good and using my stash.






I gently distressed the edges of the diecut frame with frayed burlap DI.  I cut a rough shape of the die out of some yellow card for a  backing.   This reinforcement made it easier to attach  it with foam pads.
A couple of diecut corners, a rough raffia knot and ... that's it....simples.

 A bit of fun

One of my son's other interests (after fishing) is growing chili plants.
There are chili plants everywhere, according to Grandson, lol.
I had joked with him that he could get lost in the 'chilli forest' so this is the story behind this card from him to his Dad .

Thank you for stopping by today and to everyone for the lovely comments left on my previous posts.

Two great cards. The chilli forest is brilliant - I bet that makes him smile. His mantlepiece should look a picture with all those fab hand made cards on it.
