Wanted Birthday Card for My Nephew
Hi Everyone, please don't faint, it's really ME!!! I trust I'm not the only person
with the February blahs. I am so looking forward to SPRINGGG!!! It will come none to early for me!! Having said that, I must thank you for your patience and I promise I will be posting more regularly.
I needed a masculine card for my adopted nephew, Robert's, 22nd birthday. I have no idea where the time has gone, hard to believe he's 22!! I decided to use Stampin Up's "Wanted" stamp set. For some reason, the base card looks like it's light, light blue, but it's not. I used Very Vanilla for the base. I then used a layer of Chocolate Chip Card Stock, followed by Chocolate Chip DSP. For the scallop circles I used Kraft and Chocolate Chip. To get the "worn" look on the smaller Chocolate Chip piece, I simply wadded it up into a ball, and then smoothed it out and layered it over the DSP and circle scallops, holding it there with 6 antique small brads. I stamped "wanted" onto Very Vanilla and added some paper peircing to it. I then added the stamped horse that I cut out and used dimensionals on it to for the 3-D effect. I added some Natural Hemp Twine for the "lasso" and put a greeting inside.
I hope you like how the card turned out. Thanks so much for dropping by, I do hope that the snow melts for everyone and that Spring is just around the corner for us all. Ahhhhhh, what a wonderful thought!!!
Happy Stampin and take care,
