How have my beautiful crafty friends been?!
Today, I am sharing a card I made for and already mailed out to my male best friend, Milton. Today is his birthday, so I want to wish him a happy birthday!!! Happy Birthday, Milton!!!
This time it's a fancy masculine card! heehee (: I heat embossed the white sentiment onto vellum paper. The woodgrain background is from Hero Arts (in love with it!) and I inked it up using distress ink in "faded jeans". Then, I sprayed some perfect pearls mist onto the inked background stamp... This left a gorgeous, shimmery impression on the white card stock!!! It doesn't exactly show on the picture, but in person it is quite beautiful! (Ask Milton - HA!) I mounted the background panel onto a shimmery navy blue card stock by Bazzill. I also used the same navy blue card stock to mount the sentiment on vellum (the vellum adhesive isn't supposed to show through, but for whatever reason it did). I also clear heat embossed the tie (from Lawn Fawn's "Dad's Day"), and to make it pop and match with the rest of the white theme, I used a white gel pen to outline the stripes on the tie. To finish off the card, I added pearls in varying sizes, which I think gave the card a classy finishing touch (:
Here's a look at the card:
Hope you all enjoyed this card, and perhaps I have inspired you to get crafty today! Have an amazing and blessed day!!! See you again soon with more FUN surprises!!! Xoxo
