Not Quite A Gap Card

I had a mind to try a gap card today, you can see some lovely examples on
Paula Pascal's blog! ....Hmmm, mine didn't turn out quite like hers. I realised after I had cut the card that my die-cut numbers were not big enough to hold the two pieces together firmly enough, so I improvised with a piece of acetate.

Et Voila! Not quite a gap card but almost.
The vibrant papers came from Kirsty Wiseman's Colour Burst of Fanciful Things, CD rom. The numbers were bought already die-cut but I embossed them with the cuttlebug and inked them up and heat embossed them with holographic EP.

I hope the intended recipient will like it even though it did go a bit 'Pete Tong'.

Must find something a bit more attractive than my scabby old patio table to put my cards on, but I always think I get a better photo outside.

TFL and BFN.
