My son is very lucky to have a December birthday. In fact, it is December 28, between Christmas and New Years. You could ask him how lucky that is for him, NOT! He would tell you that everything comes at once and then.... nothing the rest of the year. What can I say! It was not my plan, he came a month early. But, I try to make the day special for him as much as I can. He is married now to a wonderful wife that takes care of that for me. So I make him a special card each year. This is the one for this year. I really need to get some more manily stamps as he loves to hunt and does so every weekend. Just him and his dog, Muddy Paws Boss Hoss, an English Black Lab.
This card will be entered in several challenges this week.
The card is stamped with a Gina K Design stamp set, called Up and Away. On a base of black I layered a panel of silver CS with rounded orders. On that layer, I used a stencil from Simon Says, and put Distressed Stickles, clear rock candy. It looks like the wind. The sentiment is a clear stamp. so I was able to curve it and stamp it in Black embossing powder. The balloon is colored with Copics and glossy accents were added. I added a bakers twine bow that is also blowing in the wind with the help of a little glue. I also dry embossed the black layer with Tim Holtz Gears folder for a more manly, textured look.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
