It was also my brother’s birthday last month. And this is another card I’ve made using the Outlaw Designer Series Paper.
I managed to make this card without a Really Rust Ink pad … (on my wish list!) … I did use the Really Rust marker pen though, which helped out! I like these colours for a masculine card … Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and Very Vanilla.
I must admit, I did go on “punch” overload with this card … I have used the Large Star, Star, Designer Label, 1 3/8″ circle and Photo Corners. It didn’t seem like so many when I was making the card!
Well, this year my Dad turned 60! Dad doesn’t live nearby and he is visiting at the moment, so I can now show you the birthday card I made for him.
I really wanted to try and make a masculine card … meaning no flowers! That is a challenge! Instead, I went with a stars theme … cause my Dad’s a star! hehe! Plus I stuck to mostly neutral colours with Basic Black, Copper and Very Vanilla … with a dash of Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise.
The stamps I used were Classic Stars jumbo wheel with the Large Star and Star punches, Wonderful Favourites and Best Friends Numbers. I also remembered to use my Hodgepodge hardware for once! That was nice! I love the Soft Sky ribbon too … I couldn’t help putting ribbon on the card. Sorry Dad! hehe!
If you’re not familiar with Faux Stitching, I recommend you join my newsletter group. This months’ newsletter contained a tutorial on this great effect. So simple!
This is a lovely card made by one of my customers. Anita has used Stampin’ Up!’s Classic Stars jumbo wheel and the star punch. The stars are really effective, aren’t they? I bet whoever Anita gave it to loved it!
