Birthday Card for Hubby

Good afternoon!  May is our month for birthdays. My hubby, my stepson, and 2 of my granddaughters have May birthdays, along with myself. My daughter says May is almost as bad as Christmas.  Throw in Mother's Day and my anniversary, and well, it does get pretty expensive...

This is a card I made for my darling hubby for his birthday.

It uses a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a stamp from My Paper Moon. After running the white cardstock through the Cuttlebug and embossing it, I sponged some light green dye inks on the cardstock, then diluted some gold acrylic paint and put a little of that on it.  You can't see it from the scan, but there is a gold sheen to parts of the background.

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock, and again, sponged some dye inks on it to make it match the embossed background.  I used pop dots to raise it up on another piece of cardstock, which I cut a little larger.  I mounted that on some mulberry paper and glued it to the background.  Adhered the whole thing to a piece of yellow cardstock, and called it done.

Hope you've enjoyed my little piece of art.  Until next time, do something crafty...
