Hello there fellow crafty people,
Today I am sharing a card that a colleague of mine asked me to make for her, for a male friend named Cliff who is turning 60. I needed some inspiration as man cards are not my forte, and then into my inbox popped this lovely card from Therese and this was all the inspiration I needed….thanks Therese!!
This is also the first card I have made using my first ever set of nesties – I know – a bit behind the eight ball, but I am in love with them! I want more!! The dandelions are from a set called ‘Just Dandy’ from Practicing Creativity and are white embossed.
A close up of the embossing.
Stamps: Practicing Creativity – Just Dandy
Ink: VersaMark Watermark Ink
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured single fold), Turquoise Bazzill card – 2 shades
Other Supplies: Nestabilities -Labels 4, American Craft White embossing powder, heat gun, white DMC thread, Kaisercraft pearls – snow, Computer generated font – Segoe Script printed in grey, white striped paper from Fashion Textures Creative Stationery.
This card took many attempts to get to this finished product but I am pleased with how it turned out. Originally I clear embossed the dandelions but they didn’t stand out enough on the card.
Thanks for looking. I have another 60th b’day card to share with you soon.
