Normally masculine cards are VERY hard for me....but it is my Dad's Birthday Party tonight (his birthday was yesterday) so I had a lot of fun making him his extra special birthday card. I used the faux bleaching technique with my color washes for this card. I also used the lollipop tutorial from The Next Level challenge blog to create the "masculine" looking flower for my card. We all know how much I love my flowers! I had a regular flower on the card to start out but it just did not look right...then I remembered the lollipop technique and thought that would be the perfect addition to my card.
And of course the finished inside of the card:
Stamps: Peterbilt Truck Stamp, Stampendous word Stamp
Inks: Momento Rich Cocoa, Adirondack Color Wash in Denim & Espresso
Papers: Stampin' Up cardstock, Basic Grey Granola Collection dp
Tools: Curved Rectangle Nesties, MS ribbon punch, EK Success leaf punch
Embellishments: Roses, Glimmer Mist - Iridescent Gold (used on lollipop "flower"), ribbon, tulle, brad, and custom made hat pin made by me.
Now, head on over to the Embellish-Online Blog to get the rest of the details. We would love for you to play along.
Thanks for stopping by....hope your Friday is WONDERFUL!
