Birthday Card for Dad
Today's card is full of all the new trends. It has Washi Tape, Trendy Twine, Chalkboard Art, Banners, Chevrons and of course Sizzix Pop-in-Cut. This card was for my dad's 83rd birthday, so I pulled out all the stops.
I started the base of the card with black card stock and the rest of the paper is from MME "Lost in Found 2". I love this paper collection, I have had it for some time but could not bring myself to use it. It has a nice vintage look to it, just fitting for my dad :)
I used the Sizzix chevron die to cut a mask. then used Broken China and Picket fence Distress Paint, to make a chevron pattern.
I used the On the Edge die for the front of the card.
Next I used the Sizzix banner die and broken china paint.
I used picket fence for the stamp and some clear embossing powder. Then I fussy cut and pop dot it to the front of the card.
I finished the banner with more MME paper and clear stickers. Then added some Wahsi Tape mustaches and tied a banner with some Trendy Twin to the bike.
This is all I have time for right now. I will be back later to show the pop-up on the inside.
