Can you believe Easter is almost here? I haven't made any cards for the holiday yet. Today, we had snow all day, that heavy, wet type. It gave everything a pretty white coating all day; however, it changed to rain late this afternoon and washed it all away. I wonder what Easter Sunday will bring weatherwise.
My son celebrated his 23rd birthday last week which also coincided with the first day of spring. Not that this card I made for him remotely looks springlike! I always find it difficult to make masculine card and, in fact, dread it. For this one, I made the card base from Recollections cardstock. The patterned paper is Farm House Paper Company and the green cardstock is Tim Holtz which I sanded a bit. I put a piece of burlap on top of these papers and tied some hemp around the card and threaded it through a Dear Lizzy button. The tag was stamped with Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap. An October Afternoon label and stickers were added to the card along with a reinforcer, hanger clip and butterfly sticker all from Tim Holtz. The timepiece was in the bargin bin at Michael's. At this point, I wasn't quite satisfied with the card, so I placed two Momenta Metal corners opposite each other on the card.
Here is a bit of a view from the side.
Well, that's it for today. My goal is to get an Easter card made and posted here before Sunday. Hopefully, that will happen! Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!
