Happy Birthday, Dad!

My Dad celebrated a milestone birthday earlier this month, and I'm finally getting around to sharing the card that I made for him.  He's a farmer, and I knew as soon as I saw this farm image when I joined the CDS digi design team last fall that I'd use it for his birthday card.

Since the image panel was fairly large, I opted not to use a sketch with lots of layers of papers.  I really wanted my weathered wood paper to show up in the background and not be entirely covered, so I just added an angled sheet of red paper that I embossed with a paisley design, some twine, and a few stars.

Here's a look at the inside of the card.


Image:  Digi from "Farm Critters and Barn" set by Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Ink:  Vintage Photo Distress Ink (sponged)
Papers:  White, red, dps from My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline - Fiddlesticks"
Other:  Copic markers, paisley Cuttlebug embossing folder, Tim Holtz distressing tool, the 3 little stars are leftovers from the MFT Western Star Border duo die, thin twine, tiny stars are the punch outs from the MFT die, sponge, SU! punch for sentiment tag
Techniques:  distressing, sponging
Card size:  6" square

Thanks for stopping by!
