The background for this card was a Technique Junkie tech. that I've forgotten the name of, but it involves Adirondack re-inkers and glossy cardstock! I didn't really like how it turned out so hadn't used it, but after putting it through a Cuttlebug embossing folder it came up allright for a masculine card.
Supplies used: SU Kraft cardstock, unknown brand burgundy paper, MM bronze coloured staples, MM Rummage White Alphabet rub-ons (for the number 60), green grosgrain and burgundy polka dot ribbon.
Stamps used: October Afternoon (row of stars), Inque Boutique (larger stars), and Wendy Irving Clear Expressions greeting.
I made this one for my brother's birthday, he's 2 years younger than me and takes delight in giving me funny age related cards, so when I discovered these Darkroom Door Robot Photochips I thought this one with a shocked look on his face was perfect to go with the sentiments!
The 'How old' sentiment is a Penny Black stamp and the other one is from a Darkroom Door Wordstrip (they match the Robot Photochips). I thought the copper coloured eyelets went well with the robot too!
I didn't realise until I uploaded these 2 cards that I'd chosen the same colour scheme for both of them........I actually made them a few days apart and didn't realise I'd done that!
Thanks for dropping by again today! I'm trying to get back into some regular posting, but I don't have as much time these days.....there just aren't enough hours in the day sometimes!
