Masculine Family Birthday Card - 49th & Market, Laser Chipboard & NUVO Mousse

Hello Everyone,

I am guessing that some of you are wondering why I haven't posted in a while. Well a lot has happened besides my move to Calgary, and I will leave it at that for now. Still working on getting some of my class designs scheduled, and those posts are waiting for class info before I can officially post them.

I have really missed not having the time to create something. And I mean really miss it, but I haven't finished unpacking yet! This is due to the unexpected things that came up. But with a masculine family birthday upon the horizon, I said 'to heck with not having my craft room all set up', and created a quick card using leftover pieces of 49th & Market paper and some Creative Embellishments laser cut chipboard ferns.

A quick and easy card!

The heat embossed stamped sentiment is double heat embossed to give the gold a thicker look and more raised from the paper. I hope you can see that better in the following photo.

The laser cut ferns from Creative Embellishments I covered with Seaspray Green NUVO Mousse and then when dry, brushed on some Indian Gold NUVO Mousse. I love the look of these patina metallic looking ferns. It helps to give it a little more a masculine look. Don't you think?

Here is a closer look at some of the ferns.

I wanted to use my gold Gel Pen around the edges of the lighter paper against the darker green, but found I have misplaced the pen. But my card is ready to go even without that for this early April masculine birthday.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing this card, and feel free to share your thoughts on this card.

Until next time, Happy Creating!
