Cool Dude

Good morning 🙂 I have so many men to give birthday cards to, and so few cards, that I figured I’d better get going and make some!! One of my coworkers is in his 60’s, and is such a joy to work with….he really is a cool dude!! This image from Dr. Digi, Aubery Bumblethope, actually looks a bit like him, lol. I colored the image with Copics, then fussy cut it out.

The colors that I chose to use on the image lent themselves to make a card with my favorite color combo 🙂 I embossed a piece of card stock, then brushed a silver ink pad over it, to give the design a bit of definition. I die cut a stitched frame, and multiple banners from pieces of scrap paper, and layered it all together with a piece of red CS that I’d edged with a silver pen. The sentiment was printed out and cut out with another die. To finish off, I added a few red and black embellishments.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
