Birthday SilhouettePosted: March 16, 2010
This is a quick post of a quick card I whipped up for a friend of my husband. We were going to the birthday party on Saturday night so I looked through the stash only to find that I had no “manly” cards. When I finished this one I asked my husband if it was manly enough and he gave me a hesitant yes. It was later in the evening that I began to wonder if we had given a card to the same person a couple of years ago made with the same stamp. He and his wife were quite impressed then to receive a handmade card. I wonder if they will be impressed this time when they see I’ve been using the same stamp for two years! It’s not as if I don’t own a few other stamps!
I embossed the tree in black and then sponged in yellow, apricot and blue to create the sunrise scene. I was going for the CAS look so I popped up the scene and stamped a greeting. Problem was I didn’t bother using the stampamajig for my words so they ended up crooked. To remedy that error I cut the picture off the white card I had attached it to leaving a narrow border of white around it. I then attached the two lavers to a new base and stamped the words again. So the picture is doubly popped up, which I don’t mind. The photo is a little strange as I took it on my craft table under the fluorescent light without the tripod. Time was of the essence.
