Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted since last Tuesday! Ack!
Sorry everyone :( I recently started a new PT job and it requires 6 consecutive days of training(including written tests - yuck) which started last week, so I've been a little preoccupied.
I did finish my card to share with you for the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge this week (whew!) I'm trying to make a few Father's Day cards, so in keeping with that theme, I made this masculine card entitled "You Rock!" Perfect for any rock n' roll Dad!
I started with my stamp by Inkadinkado, stamped with Graphite Black Brilliance & heat-embossed with black ep on a pearlized cream cardstock - soooo pretty! I cut it out, popped it up & stitched it all together for the focal image. I used some really cool self-adhesive animal print ribbon by DCWV, punched a vellum border with a MS punch & added even more texture with the black corrugated paper in the background.
I'm not sure how I stayed away from the glitter - AGAIN! - but I had to add a little sparkle & shine, so I used a metallic cardstock for the left side of the background which I love!
And of course those great "screw" brads attached my chipboard tag and added an accent to the top of the card, to balance it all out and "hold it all together" lol!
