Happy Birthday Roger

Just a reminder, if you haven't already, pop by the Knitty Kitty Facebook or Instagram Group to take part in the current Kitmas Giveaway!

It's my partner's birthday today, not that he will read this, but just so you know why the following card is a little bit odd, it's for him! :)

So because I was pretty desperate to use my new Lawn Fawn Stamp Set - You're Claw-some, I adapted it and filled it with chess pieces! My partner loves chess. I couldn't resist using some chessboard style floor and funked it up a bit with some spotty background (wall) paper! (From Tonic Mid-Summer Mornings 8x8)

I spotted the matching spotty washi the day after I made the card, so I bought it to decorate the envelope too!

The claw machine and pawns are all coloured with copics and highlighted with posca pen and white gel pen.  The two fonts are CAC Pinafore and Candy Round BTN. I added some acetate to the machine, so you could see through it. Mounted on 7 x 5 card blank.

I kinda wanted to change the greeting to "Hope your birthday is Pawn-some" but then realised that has a VERY different meaning! Oops :)

This card was actually for his Mum to give him. I'll post mine tomorrow. :)


  1. Wow you are so inspiring! That is one claw-some card! Happy Birthday to your partner!
