Today is our 33rd Anniversary!
I just wanted to share the card I made for my hubby.
I kept it very simple and masculine.
Just some embossing, distressing
and a simple sentiment
held on with eyelets and baker's twine!
This is a close-up of the distressing techniques...
I used a block sander to gently
sand off some of the outer green color
to expose the white core center of the
cardstock, after I had embossed it
AND I scraped the edges of the
green layer with my scissors.
Inside of card
I can't take credit for the inside idea,
but I did do the math, LOL!
I saw this idea on Pinterest probably over
a year ago, and thought I had pinned
it to one of my boards. I searched
for quite some time trying to find it
to give proper credit, but for the life of
me, I could not locate it.
I have over 125 boards on Pinterest
with almost 26,000 'pins'.... and
I looked on every board I thought I
could possibly have pinned it to, but to no avail.
So, I either overlooked it or I didn't
pin it to begin with, so whoever I got
this from.... thank you for the inspiration!
