Once again, it is another rainy day here but I do not mind. I find the rain rather peaceful. I would rather it be snow but I guess that is not going to happen much more this season.
Yesterday was my husband's birthday. I struggle making masculine-themed cards and almost went out to buy one. Being a fan of Tim Holtz and owning quite a few of his products, I thought I should make some use of them. Here is what I made.
Everything on the card is by Tim Holtz except for the card base and foam tape. The postage stamp frame was cut from his Classic cardstock and covered with paper from last year's Christmas collection. I used Distress Inks in Stormy Sky, Scattered Straw and Mowed Lawn on the background. The flower diecut shapes are from his Botanical Ephemera. A butterfly from the Botanical Ephemera was attached to the little boy paper doll. All were adhered with foam tape for dimension. A remnant rub was placed on the Enameled Tag and tied with a Jute String bow. A couple of metal stars were glued in the upper right corner.
My husband liked this card and I hope you do as well. I must admit I did enjoy putting it together. I like the fact that the Christmas paper worked well with the botanical items. I need to play with these things more often!
Well, that's it for me today. I am looking forward to a nice dinner with my family later and just taking it easy. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and also for your sweet comments. Have a most wonderful week ahead!
