R is for...

Mister Handmade in Israel recently celebrated his birthday. He turned 55, though I didn't put that on his card this year and I've given it away now anyway! I am always trying to come up with something different for the cards I make for him. He is a fan of my papercuts (this is what I made him for his 50th birthday) so I decided to cut a papercut initial. The geometric pattern I filled it with was bloomin' fiddly!
I cut out a large letter R from white stock and I added a green paper inlay. It wasn't perfect but he liked it anyway.
There was a cake as well. With Smarties, a football and football boots on top. The boys are both home for the time being. School is out for the summer and the eldest has finished his pre-army programme, so they are both temporarily around a lot. This meant that they ate most of the cake. I think Mister Handmade in Israel managed one slice!

Love this! I love papercutting, it's so relaxing and when you turn it over it's like magic isn't it?

A very happy birthday to your husband. Glad he got some cake. You must have the most steady hand. The cuts are so fine. #MMBC

That does look like a fiddly cut, but it's so pretty, I'm glad Mr Handmade liked it. The cake looks pretty scrummy too, it wouldn't have lasted five minutes in our house.
