Male Birthday Card.

I needed a birthday card for my future son-in-law, and decided to use this week's Sketch #31 from the Papertake Weekly blog.


The seashell stamp is by Ferngully Stamps, an Aussie company, the greeting is by Flourishes. The background for the seashell stamp is called 'Al Foil' from a Technique Junkies Newsletter. The Cuttlebugged piece is a mosaic embossing folder done on Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock, the pale orange background is the same Core'dinations cardstock but reversed. I don't know who the DP. is by, I think it's handmade paper and it has no identification on it. I added some black triangular brads, a seahorse charm and some thread.

Thanks for looking, it's back to chemo for me tomorrow, so I might be a bit scarce for a few days.

The Al Foil technique is so pretty. The embossing looks great and adds a lot to make this card truly fabulous.
