Celebrate the Occasion and Digi Stamps 4 Joy Challenges
At Celebrate the Occasion the challenge is Masculine Birthday and at Digi Stamps 4 Joy the theme is "For the Boys". I really had fun designing this card and I love how it turned out. I started with an old page from a book and a brass stencil of a buck from Lynell Harlow. I embossed the buck onto the book page using my No More Shims thick pad, and while the stencil was still on the page, I sponged Rusty Hinge Distress ink on the buck. I also distressed the sides of the paper piece with a lighter distress ink. The kraft card was cut to be 3 1/2" wide when folded, so the card fits into an A2 envelope, and I embossed it with a CB folder. I cut the brown strip and added some baker's twine around it. The sentiment on the tag is an old one from TAC and I hung it from the baker's twine with a small green pin.
I am off for a weekend of smiles and fun visiting my grandson and daughter. Will be back Monday with more ideas to share. It is so fun being a Grandma:)
