Happy Birthday Doug

Hello there!

Sorry for the lack of posting, I have been having some computer issues. I also had my youngest home on Tuesday, it seems some kind of cold is going around our house. He likes to get crafty and after resting all morning, he wanted to play in my stamp room. We were both supposed to make cards for Doug, but the little man started with a card which turned into a big project that involved LOTS of paper and tape and eventually wound up on his bedroom wall (ugh).

Since Doug is the outdoorsy type, I usually use images inspired by nature. This time though, I wanted the nature feel to be a bit more subtle. Rather than the normal shades of green, I went with neutrals & a pop of color. I did some tone-on-tone stamping with a leaf image on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and die cut the leaves from the Folk Art Florals die. Then I paired that with some background stamping & houndstooth embossing. After layering the different pieces together and adhering my focal panel on dimensionals, I decided that the card needed one more finishing touch...paper piercing!

I hope he likes it. He'll get it tonight when he gets home from work. Hopefully he doesn't stop by my blog today!!!

Happy birthday hunny!

*I'll be back later with my supply list!
