It’s that time again friends!
Sunday was my dad’s birthday so I was in the need of a masculine (the hardest kind!) birthday card. I grabbed Colonial White Cardstock and my Jackson Paper Packet and used CCR with the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge to create the panels. Next I grabbed the Glitter Glam (sounds like an oxymoron for a masculine card, doesn’t it?!?) Stamp Set. Using Juniper, Barn Red, Glacier Exclusive Ink™, Versamark™ and Gold Embossing Powder I created the randomly stamped backdrop. I altered the sketch slightly by moving the vellum with the Joyful Birthday heat embossed sentiment to the bottom of the card. I used Liquid Glass to adhere the vellum to the cardstock and a (retired) wood button with (retired) waxy flax to finish the card!

I’m back again with another AHSC! If you look at my recent posts they are full of AHSC! I promise I have a lot more papercrafting projects to show you, but this summer has just been crazy busy and I haven’t had a lot of opportunity to get my blog up to date on all the artwork I’ve completed.
Here’s the sketch:
Here’s my card:
I started with a white card base and stamped multiple clouds from the Rain or Shine Stamp Set in Whisper Exclusive Ink™ in first and second generation. I then layered Babycakes (retired) B&T Duos with a little stitching. I then fussy cut the sun, stamped in Canary Exclusive Ink™, from the same stamp set. I layered another cloud using Thin 3D Foam Tape, added a little stitching and Clear Sparkles to give the illusion of rain. I debated on what to do with the sentiment…Whether or not to stamp it on the face of the card or stamp it inside?!? I still don’t know how I feel about it, BUT I knew I didn’t want to start over so this is how it ended up!
