Happy Birthday...And Many Mower!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Saturday!

Here is a Birthday card I created for my Father In Law.  He is ALL about cutting his lawn, so Who's That Guy? I Love You Mower from My Favorite Things was the perfect choice when it came to making his card.

I started by stamping the focal image from this set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored the entire image with Copic Markers.  I then cut it out and layered it onto another piece of Choice Buttercream to mat it.  The card base is Tangy Orange Cardstock.

All of the patterned paper is Lime Twist/Fly A Kite from My Minds Eye, and the sentiment, "You're A Cut Above" was stamped on a panel cut with the File Tab Die-Namics.  I added a border of grass with the Fresh Cut Grass Die-Namics, some brads and some Baker's Twine.

For the inside, I added some more patterned paper, another border cut with the Fresh Cut Grass Die-Namics, and another sentiment, "Happy Birthday...and Many Mower!".  Cracks me up!

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:

  6. Hi everyone. I'm delighted to have become a member of this forum and am looking forward to contributing.

    My interests are wide and varied but I guess my real passion is for music. I love a wide variety such as
    Faithless, The Smiths, Enigma, The Cure & The Mission.

    I'm always on the lookout for new places to download new music and the best place I have come across is
    [url=]Iomoio[/url]. Their music is only 15 cents a track so you can save a real fortune. And it's legal!

    Anyway, looking to make more posts soon.....
