It's Your Day

Hi There,

Friday is finally here. Today I'm heading to the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention. It's only 10 minutes away. I'll be sure to let you know on Monday if I found any good deals.

My brother's birthday is coming up soon and I needed to get a card in the mail. I struggled trying to come up with an idea. I was going to use my stamps but couldn't find the set I wanted..I know it is in that cupboard somewhere!

I was very happy with the card once I was finished. The entire card was printed and cut with the Imagine.

It's Your Day - Celebrations
Sun - Designer Calendar
Chair - Life's A Beach
Pattern Paper - Snapshot - Nature
Both the background and paper for the chair were printed with cricut cartridges - Snapshot - Nature.When I look at the sample in the handbook I can't visualize it until I actually try it out.

Couple things I did with the chair to make it stand out more. When this image is cut out there are cut lines for the slats on the chair. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Pumice and I also used a copic marker to draw fine lines. It adds a lot of depth.
The sun has been glittered. The button was a different shade of blue until I colored it with my copic marker to match.
So this card can work for Father's Day or a birthday.
