I'm starting off the year with my first birthday card! And this will be a shocker but I have plans to mail this card.
I'm terrible about going to the post office but I really need to do better this year. It's much more fun to make someone's day with a special card instead of just sticking them (the cards, not the people) in a box on a shelf. ;)
For this card, I used the Beau and Beatrice Beaver stamp set and Beau and Beatrice Beaver crafting dies from Technique Tuesday. I stamped the beaver on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. I did the same with the log image (times three). Once colored the images were cut out using the coordinating dies.
I used just a few pieces of designer paper and a couple pieces of card stock for the layers, stamping the sentiment on an aqua piece before die cutting with a stitched rectangle die.
And since I wanted this card to be on the manly side I only used a few gold rhinestones for embellishment. I didn't quite succeed on the "manly" - the scalloped border was a bit much. lol.
That is it for today. Hope you all enjoy the first weekend of the new year. I'm planning to take down the Christmas decorations, do a bit of cleaning and purging, and hopefully have some time to hang out in the craft room. How about you?
Disclosure: Thank you to Tam at Technique Tuesday for the stamps/dies that I am showcasing in today's project!
