I have a card which I really enjoyed making today with a slightly masculine feel.
Today would have been my dad's birthday if he was still with and so if no one minds I should like to dedicate today's card to my dad and all the dads no longer with us. God bless them all.
Happy Birthday to my wonderful father who was also the one who raised me and gave me all the values I carry with me today. xxx
Here is today's card using just the Believe stamp set from Visible Image who are enjoying their honeymoon as we speak , they made a fabulous Bride and groom last week in wales.
So today's card has quite a few elements but is fairly easy to do depending how many embellishments you choose to add or whether you decide to keep it clean and simple with the handmade back ground.
So as aways I have a full tutorial on how I put this together so with out further ado let us begin
First the Believe stamp set comes with two separate word stamps follow your dreams and Believe of course and I used Brown archival ink here with follow your dreams on white card for the background.
When you have staggered all the words and cut it to the size you require ink around the edge lightly with Walnut stain distress ink and it should look as it does here.
Once the ink is on the card spritz the ink with water and curl the card back so the curl goes back on itself as below.
Wrap a piece of brown satin ribbon around the bottom of the piece you made earlier
Add the three tickets on the bottom left of the card, sightly overlapping each other near the satin ribbon.
I also used treasure gold polish to add some god to the button and to the card curl backs and some of the ribbon and embellishments to tie it all together.
Here is the compete image with another flower added to the left to finish this card off.
A slightly different angle. I hope you like this male themed with a twist card all and I send my love to all.
Here is the stamp set used on this one.
Unfortunately this has now been discontinued ( I did not realise until I had made the card unfortunately and i really wanted to show it to you today) but you will find so many wonderful word and verse stamps over at Visible Image and I have linked it here for your ease to look if you should like to.
I have you have a wonderful Wednesday folks and i look forward to catching up with you all really soon.
