I am so happy with this card. I find it so difficult to create a male Easter card and I think this one will work. The only thing slightly feminine on the card are the two little flower punches on the corners. I needed something and couldn't find anything else. I am pleased with the ribbon. I attached a circle from the hodgepodge set from SU and I love how this turned out. I used Star Dust Stickles in the center of the flowers and on the holes of both buttons.
I couldn't decide which of these two photos of the front was the best so I have included both. Guess you must chose which one to scan over. The spray of birds is an Inkadinkado stamp. I embossed it with Deco Black and that create the colorful sparkle you see. It is such a dramatic effect. I colored the birds different shades using Twinkling H2Os.
The tree stamp is from Imaginisce. It is also embossed with Deco Black powder and I colored the flowers blue. I framed both layers of images on DCWV Textured Metallic Blue paper. The tree layer has its corners punch with the SU Ticket punch and is attached with dimensionals.
On the inside of the card I used Black Detail embossing powder on the spray of birds. I used the label 1 nestibilities to attached both layers to create a sentiment layer.
Yesterday was such a bad day for this family. After getting stuck in the driveway for almost an hour, my DH and DS ended up getting a flat tire on the way to work and had to change the tire. How much more could go wrong....well, my DH had to come home sick and has not left the bed yet. One of the 17year olds now has the mumps, DH is sick and has had the mumps but who knows and the other 17year old is now sick with a terribly sore throat. That leaves the oldest son and myself the only ones still "living". All I seem to be doing is serving soup and juices to the ill. This is invading my stamp time.
Don`t for get the blog candy.
Must go....the sick are calling.
