It's my brother's birthday today. Happy Birthday Greg! He's supposed to be going out of town today for a weekend of four-wheeling with the guys. I hope he has a good time.
If you're familiar with SplitcoastStampers you're probably aware that it's also Daven Nolta and Beate Johns birthday's today too. Daven and my Brother were born on the same day. So I guess I'll share a couple of birthday cards today in their honor.
This first card is one that I made for my Nephew's birthday a couple of weeks ago. I used the retired set Yukon from Stampin' Up. It's one of those sets that I love for making guy cards. The card base is Kraft with a block of Bo Bunny polka dot paper. I stamped the bear on a panel of Kraft and the mountain background stamp on another Kraft panel then added a little color to the images using reinkers and colored pencil. The edges were sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink. The mountain piece was matted with the reverse side of the Bo Bunny paper and attached to the card. I ran my tracing wheel around the bear panel before mounting it with pop dots and stamped the birthday wishes from Anna Wight's 29 Again set from Whipper Snapper. Last I die cut the 16 out of grungeboard and inked it with Walnut Stain distress ink then mounted it on another panel of Kraft. For the finishing touch I added a tab and brad on the end of the piece that overlapped the bear panel.
For the second card I used C.C. Designs AmyR's Amy's Boutique and Boutique Sentiments with a variety of papers from the Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday line.Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're all having a great day (especially if it's your birthday)!
