How I made my February page III

This is my second layout our February Challenge.

A reminder that the challenge was to scraplift this clever layout by SJ, it was a class she taught at the Cardinal Colours Retreat last year.

This is the Scrapology sketch

I used a pad of  8"x8" papers from Glitz Design called Love Games, which is the same as was used in SJ's original, but I picked out the black, white and red papers to go with my playing card theme.

Love Games *On Sale!

I cut and inked 16 pieces 3" x 3" and arranged them onto a plain piece of 12" x12" cardstock.
Then I cut and inked four card game shapes from scraps of the patterned papers. and added these to four of the squares. I used the Sure Cuts A Lot programme for the Cricut.

I mounted the photo onto some dark grey cardstock and arranged onto the layout. I tucked two fans of four mini playing cards (from a cracker) into position as seen.  I added some large cross stitches in red DMC thread.  Lastly I added the title using Lush black velvet letters.

The photo is my Dad back in the 1950's dressed up for a photo shoot with his friend.
