Distress oxide ink, Masks/Stencils, Visible Image

Happy birthday hubby dearest 

Yes it is the hubbys birthday today… Happy birthday to my soulmate and best friend! 

Right that’s enough soppiness for you to endure.. 

Here is the far from soppy card I made! 

I used a new stencil and stamp set from Visible image which I bought specifically to make him a card as I knew it would be perfect for him. I blended a background of wilted violet and candied apple distress oxides first and the edged it with black soot. I added the stencil and used black soot to add the images. Then I made sure that was dry before embossing the main image. 

I embossed it twice to give it extra thick texture.  Then I embossed the sentiment and stamped the other elements including his name.  

I decided to edge the card blank with some stamping from the same set before layering the panel with some foam and then the other elements on top. 

Finally added the black gems … which I think go with the card even though I wouldn’t normally add bling to a boy card! 

I also decorated the envelope with the same star grungey image. 
 So there you are… a funky and fun card for my rocking hubby! Perfect! 

Happy crafting!
