I desparately tried to find a spooky picture of the Alton Towers, but there weren't any on the internet, so I went with this one instead, as it looks quite spooky to me. All I have done with this card is print out my own backing paper which says a load of words associated with ghosts; haunted houses etc - thought I would struggle with finding enough words to be honest, but managed to come up with over 40, so I typed them out in a creepy looking font, and then just copied and pasted them to fill a page. I've matted the words onto silver mirror card and black card, and added the spooky house into a frame, that I thought looked quite old and destressed. I received the frame with some other bits and pieces as a prize from The Wife on MSE. The sentiment is from craftworkcards.
This second card is one from the kids, and my instructions from my eldest son, was it had to be something to do with a dairy milk chocolate bar, which is my OHs favourite chocolate bar. So I came up with this, another 3d card, that is supposed to look like a bar of dairy milk, and if I do say so myself I think I have achieved it!
I have made this card in the same way as the 3d gadget cards and just found a picture from the internet, printed it out in the size I wanted. Made some copies of the parts that I wanted to decoupage - cadburys, milk glasses, chocolate cube, and cut them all out and layered them with 3d foam pads on the top of the main picture. To make it look a little more realistic I have used pinking shears to cut the edges of the main image, and used the scoreboard to score the edges of the bar to lift the wrapper edges up to give it a bit more dimension.
Then I have matted it onto some silver mirror card and dark purple card. Again the sentiment is from craftwork cards. The kids wanted to put a real bar on the card too, so the final card that they will give him tomorrow will look like this, and once he takes the real bar off it will reveal the sentiment:
