In spite of my little sicky, I did manage to get some stamping in. My dad is celebrating his 66th birthday on Wednesday and we were supposed to be going to my brother's place for a birthday dinner this evening. My son's fever put the kibosh on that plan, but we did make birthday cards this morning. I won't post my son's efforts (think three year old, ink and car and truck stamps) but I will show you what I did. My dad is a big outdoorsman. He hates being cooped up inside and even ventures out on the coldest of cold days in northern Ontario. I wanted to make a card that reflected this part of his personality. Here is what I came up with..
|Dad's B-day card using Lovely as a Tree set.|
|Inside sentiment from Bring on the Cake set|
For the inside of the card, I stamped a portion of the forest image in the lower right corner using early espresso ink. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Bring on the Cake set on a piece of very vanilla CS, trimmed and matted it on garden green. I adhered it to the inside of the card using dimensionals.
Since my son is sick we didn't get to have dinner with my dad. They are going to stop by on their way back home tomorrow to bring us leftovers and allow us to wish my dad a happy birthday. Not ideal, but such is life with kids!
If I get time tomorrow, I will have a couple of tutorials for you! I photographed all the steps today, now I just have to type up the instructions. Stay tuned!!
