Another Dude Card
Welcome back to my blog!
There are pluses & minuses to working your own business from home, the most challenging one being time dedicated to the business. So I am going to challenge myself to post twice a week during the month of March & see if I can develop a new habit of posting more regularly. And don’t forget you can find more of my business posts over on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/SassyAngelSStudio/ I will often do quick posts of cards & artwork there as well as Fun Stampers Journey promotions & class reminders.
Our youngest son’s birthday is in February & like most of the guys in my family, well…let’s just say they don’t really care if we celebrate their birthday or not, or if they get a handmade card. However, we have a standing tradition of a family birthday dinner. Sometimes at a favorite restaurant & sometimes take out at home, playing board games & visiting. I let Colton off the hook the past year or two with no card, so this year I made sure to create one for him.
I originally thought I might use this card for the Dude Blog hop & then decided to make the motorcycle card instead.
I used one of the prints from our Mother Nature collection for the background, layered on a Lemongrass card base. I happened to pick up the Pennant Fun dies at Leadership & decided they fit the patterned paper perfectly. I cut out my Whip Cream pennant with the piercing element for detail. I choose the Bike Life stamp set & embossed the bike with silver embossing powder. I then layered it on a Riverstone mat that I hand trimmed to be a little closer than the next size die cut which was too big for the card. The happy birthday sentiment is from the Rock Notes set & is silver embossed on the patterned paper. I whipped this card up in under 30 minutes, great when you need a card quick.
Thanks for stopping by!
Take some time out of your busy schedule to do something fun this week!
