Golfers Diet

Hi Everyone, a request for a golf card and this is what I came up with. The golfer is one that is from Hugware, I am so sorry it is no longer available, there were some very good artists there.

Anyway, I followed a sketch but decided to turn it upside down, I laid it all out in PS, printed and cut it all out, then embossed the circles and the age, the circles are supposed to represent golf balls, well I thought so LOL. I added the Welsh birthday greeting as the gentleman is Welsh speaking, also tried to keep it red and green also the Welsh colours. I didn't want to change the ready coloured image, so added a blue surround to the image. I embossed the background paper and was going to emboss the check paper, you can see it is partially embossed, which in the end I decided looked Ok. The fabulous sentiment is from Create with TLC.



As it was coming to the end of the embossing in the Calibur, there was a sudden cracking, you know as dies sound when they are going through, I kept going for a second or two then realised it was the folder breaking!!!!!!! I have only used it once before I am gutted! I've taped it together, it's only held by one piece of the folder. I will have to be very gentle when I use it. When I looked the folder an A4 size just fits the plate, I suppose I had it slightly off the bottom plate.
