Hubby's Birthday Card
My Hubby’s birthday is next week and I have been working on his card. Thank goodness for the 2 hr. delay today. The first picture is of me after I went out an snow blowed the driveway at 4:45 a.m.
I am very happy with the way this card turned out. I used Mojo Monday’s sketch. My hubby lives to fish. When I see fish paper I buy it. The base card is ivory Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K Designs. The fish paper is by LaRayne Miller and Keeping Memories Alive called Fishy Situation. I stamped the trout on this cool wood. It is real wood and a lot of fun to work with. I got it at one of my favorite scrapbook stores call Memory Bank in Baraboo, WI. The owner is going to CHA to demo this product for Making Memories. I used a CTMH stamp set called Catch of the Day. The feathers for the gig are from my hubby’s stash. I hope he doesn’t miss it. The screw brads are from Gina K Designs. and the ribbon with the foot steeps on it is something I had. The paper I used behind the fish paper and the for all of the scallops is really cool but I am sure you can’t see it. It has this shine, almost a glitter, to it. I don’t know what it is called. I got it when I go the wood to stamp on. The paper that looks like bubbles is ivory card stock that I ran through the CB after I inked the folder with SU Bordering Blue. The inside “Happy Birthday to you!” is stamped with a SU stamp and the line is from the CTMH set Catch of the day.
I think this is really a manly card. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping!
