Hi everyone! Here is a new and special card that I have made for a very special friend who has a birthday tomorrow. The gate fold technique is from the incredible Norma over at From My Craft Room! She really does the most incredible tutorials and this is one of them. Check out her stuff as it is fabulous. I am going to be trying a number of her tutorials so watch for them here.
I am entering this one at Eureka Stamps - Anything Goes;
The Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes;
Hooked on Crafts - Cards for Men;
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes.
Cards for guys are HARD to make. Didn't want to make it feminine in any way so that meant keeping the embellishments minimal. Hopefully a ribbon and pearls aren't too much! LOL!
I used Cool Edwin from the Sweet Rainbow collection and then masked him off and stamped Edwin's Oldsmobile from Summer Memories collection. I have colored with the trusty Copics.
