Hi, guys! Hope all is well! Today I will be sharing a card I made for my father-in-law Cal for his 87th birthday. I decided to emboss the front using the Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder. I used Core-dinations Kraft cardstock (new to me) and sanded it to reveal the kraft center. Remember those Scrabble Tiles I have been saving? Well, they found a home on this card. I used Distress Stains to color the ribbon and age the appearance of it.
Paper: Recollections Kraft Note Card, Core-dinations (Kraft Core)
Ink: Distress Ink (Vintage Photo), Distress Stain (Vintage Photo)
Misc.: Mini Scrabble Tiles, Tim Holtz Gears, Tim Holtz Ribbon, Tim Holtz Alterations Pocket Watch Embossing Folder
For the sentiment inside the card, I used a stamp by Sweet 'n Sassy that reads: Your Influence In My Life is Timeless. Perfect to use with pocket watches, I think.
Wishing Cal a very happy birthday!
Hope you have a great day and find a few moments in the day to do something you love!
