Birthday Card for my Husband!

This card is dedicated to my husband who is turning 43 today!

I tried a fun new background by taking my brayer and wrapping rubber bands around the roller. The I rolled in onto versa Mark then onto my paper and then poured gold embossing powder over the inked up areas and set it with the heat gun. I did this a few times until I got the look I was going for. Once that cooled off I sponged a few different colors into the background and then took a paper towel and wiped off the embossed areas. What do you think?

Stamp Set: Totally Tools and So happy for you (SAB only used you from one of the sayings)

Paper: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White

Ink: Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, More Mustard

Punches: Modern Label and Word Window

Misc: Brayer, Rubber Bands, Versa Mark, Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Brads, Sponge Daubers, Aqua Painter and of course the Stamp a ma jig and post it notes.

I wish I could remember where I saw the person that posted her card that spelled out Love with the tools to give her credit but there is not watermark on the card. So credit goes to her for that wonderful idea!


  1. I love how you used the tools to spell "love" so fun and creative! I bet he loves the card!

  2. what an excellent idea ~ I think the background is fabulous!
