I'm back again with another birthday card. This one is for a guy friend whose birthday is at the end of September. I thought it was a good time for a fall card. I did no coloring whatsoever, but I used a lot of ink. All the leaves were cut from saffron cardstock and ink sponged on using a sponge dauber. Just going for a manly look.
The "happy birthday" was die cut three times and layered for dimension. The top layer is 110 lb Neenah white, which I like for die cuts because of its thickness. I coated the Neenah with Versamark ink and embossed with an old favorite Vintage Verdigris embossing powder. Under that is a layer of SU! Glorious Green, and then I shadowed with a copper satin metallic cardstock.
I've made a list and I'm checking it twice for my card making needs so I can get ahead and start on Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas cards. This is a busy card making time of year! I'll see you again on Friday. Take care!
