For another man in my life!
I have been scrappin' and making cards for a while now, but I am always challenged when it comes to making cards and pages for the men in my life. I made this 5 x 7 inch card for my son-in-law for his birthday. Since I am not a cardmaker who likes to stamp and color people, I am always looking for something with a natural feel to it! I have loved this stamp of the chicadee from Heartfelt Creations for a long time and was delighted to add it to my growing collection from this wonderful company. I have used it for winter and Christmas before, but leave off some snow, and it is perfect anytime here in the Carolina's with our abundance of pine trees. I stamped the image and sentiment with Tuxedo Black Ink from Memento and colored it with Copic Markers. I used punches to punch out the sentiment (Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3363 Inspire Me Sentiments Precu Set) and scalloped mat in a complementary color and distressed the edges. The paper and frame were some papers in my collection - My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus. The card base is "Cousins" Dots/Lime Paper. The Frame is also MME Wild Asparagus "Dad" Frame - it has a nice sheen to it, too! I hope you love this little guy as much as I do. These chicadees are such "cheeky little fellows", aren't they?
That's all for now! But can you believe it? I might get 2 posts in the same week! Hallelujah! I'm back and my creative juices are flowing!
