It's my Dad-in-law's birthday in a few days and I had to get out of my comfort zone and do a masculine card. *gasp* I think I have never done one so far, my poor Dad doesn't get many cards because I just don't know what to do... *shame*
So I decided to start with something that would remind me of a shirt's fabric and do a little distress too, thinking it would look more masculine if it wasn't too polished.
I haven't done anything in so long that I was a little nervous. Every time I try to sit down and make a card I stop quickly because I don't like where it is going. I hope the mojo will be back soon, I am tired of this!
This time though I was happy because, once I started, it came to me pretty quickly and easily! It might have been because I got an idea yesterday while looking in a catalog and it involves fabric squares... :-)
This card is slightly brighter in real life, the happy b-day saying is actually gold ink rubbed over a Cuttlebug embossing.
