I scored a great deal at Tuesday Morning for this Happy Birthday die. At only $2 for the die it really felt good to be able to use it for several cards right off the bat.
Every few months I stop in at Tuesday Morning to see what they have in the craft section and I usually find at least one or two great items. If you have one near you I would suggest checking them out to see what they have.
This first card is for my brother in law, Paul. He is a man’s man kind of guy so I decided to create a card with a diamond plate look. I made the shiny silver base by covering a piece of cardstock with aluminum foil and then running it through my diecut machine in a diamond plate embossing folder.
I used Hero Arts Neon sprays and stamp pads to create this fun card. Just something light hearted and funky.
This card was for my brother, Ken. I created the background using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The inks are applying with a sponge dauber and then sprinkled with water to make the ink spread away.
