I hope that you had a great weekend. I simply can’t believe that July is flying by soooo quickly. I am not ready for summer to end. I love this summer because of the longer days, sunshine, and vacations, but I REALLY love it because July is my birthday month as well as my hubby Dmitri. His birthday is Friday, July 22nd and I created this card for him. This is one of the 3 cards that I plan on making – we have always, since we’ve been dating and married (and it’s been 20 years) have given each other at least 3 birthday cards. I am not sure why…we just have….and before I started making card, I bought them at card stores. I would see birthday cards, read them and say, ” OMG!!! I have to get this because this is soooo Dmitri!” But what would happen is that I would see 2 or 3 cards that I considered “sooo him” and I would end up getting them all, and hence how the MULTIPLE CARD GIVING started…LOL!!! So, for the next couple of days, I will be posting the cards that I will be giving him. Hopefully, he won’t check out my blog this week….LOL!!!
Okay, so let me tell you how I created the card above. I just LOVE this HeroArts BIG CANDLES stamp set. The stamps are so bold that the candles become a focal point, and I felt a word sentiment wasn’t even necessary. I stamped the candles and then heat embossed it using white opaque powder. I then colored the candles using DISTRESS INKS and I love the bold pop of colors that the inks created. I embossed the white cardstock using my CuttleBug folder, added pop dots to the candles and VOILA!!!! Again, no word sentiment here because I felt that the candles said it all.
