I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
Tomorrow is my husband’s birthday and I wanted to create a card that had a more masculine feel (i.e. no pearls or glitter :-)) and I decided to use this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA74 Celebrity Sketch Challenge (http://www.palspaperarts.com/).
This card is quick and easy, although it was difficult not to use my Big Shot:-) I chose the Friends 24-7 set for two reasons- first, we love watching birds together and second, he is my best friend 24-7 for almost 28 years now! I love him so much- I hope he likes this card!
To create this card:
First, de-static a piece of River Rock with the Embossing Buddy and stamp the bird image from Friends 24-7 in Versamark, then in Night of Navy Classic Ink.Heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder (EP).Sponge the edges with Night of Navy and layer onto Night of Navy and Very Vanilla cardstock.
Stamp the flourish image onto the DSP and sponge the edges with Night of Navy.Adhere the 1 ¼” Night of Navy Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.
Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto River Rock, punch out with the Curly Label XL Punch and sponge the edges with Night of Navy.Use the same punch to punch out a piece of Vary Vanilla to back behind the sentiment.Adhere to the back of the focal image and attach to the card.
Stamp Sets:Friends 24-7, Teeny Tiny Wishes Paper:Night of Navy, River Rock, Very Vanilla, DSP (retired) Ink:Night of Navy, Versamark Accessories: Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, Clear EP, Curly Label XL Punch, 1 ¼” Night of Navy Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
