Sean’s Birthday Card

March 20, 2013

My son-in-law celebrated his birthday on Monday and this is the card I made for him.

0015I attached a piece of aluminium foil (can you tell I love this technique) to Whisper White card using an Anywhere Glue Stick, trimmed the edges so it was nice and neat and then embossed it using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I embossed a piece of Real Red card using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, attached it to Basic Black card and attached it to the card front.  I stamped “birthday wishes” from the Bring on the Cake stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink. 0025 I embossed the greeting piece using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, attached it to Basic Black card and then to the card front.  I stamped the “racing car” image from the Need For Speed stamp set onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink.  I attached the image panel to Basic Black card and then to the card front using dimensionals.

I just love how easy this card was to make and how impressive it looks.  The background shines and shimmers and really looks like metal.   Try it yourself and see what results you can come up with.

Bye for now, Kris.
