I often struggle to make cards for men, but in a recent Making Cards magazine there were some fabulous pre-coloured images and I've used one to make this card for my nephew's birthday. I'm entering the current Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and taking my first trip to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Woodware 'Most Wonderful Birthday'
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities A2 Matting Basics B
Embossing: Clear embossing powder, Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Making Cards magazine 'Stunning Scenes', Card Candi
Snippets: White and kraft card, beige paper
I trimmed the beige paper, layered it onto kraft card and attached it to the card blank. The image was die cut and embossed before being attached to kraft card. This was then attached to the front of the card. The sentiment was stamped onto white card and embossed with clear embossing powder. This was trimmed, layered onto kraft card and attached to the card front with foam tape. To finish, I attached Card Candi to the top right corner of the card.
