Yesterday it was my father in laws 80th birthday… So that required a special card. But 80th birthdays and male cards are not my thing so instead I went all funky with his card!
I used the fab Dylusions ink sprays and some distress inks and a fabulous mask to create the background. I used the Off the Grid stamp and then a clock stamp from a random set I have and embossed it in a mixture of green and blues.
Then with plenty of inking around the edges I mounted it onto Midnight muse. Then I took another piece of white cardstock and stamped Hardwood in some midnight muse which I stamped off and added more distress ink to the edge with my sponge. This was the bottom mount for the card topper.
Then I took some Sahara Sand cardstock and stamped the hardwood stamp and stamped it in Crumb cake and cut out the banner shape. Then some of the fab chevron ribbon in Chocolate Chip (I think) and some bakers twine and created the little embellishment. I added a clock charm … I have a few of these (I have a plan for them!) and I added this to the banner.
Then it was time to add the sentiment so I stamped a couple of tickets… One with the Henry says birthday sentiment, and the other one of the tickets from That’s the ticket set.
Raised the whole topper onto dimensionals and added it to a white 8×8 card blank.
Then did the envelope too… A little inking around the edge and some more cog inking using the mask and Distress Inks.
Hopefully he liked the card I made. He should have received it yesterday and on Sunday we celebrate with him properly!
