Born to Golf

Hi Bloggers.

Today's card is another golfing one.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Playing Through Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I edged the panel with Faded Jeans Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using the Coffee Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Five and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I cut a strip of grey card and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Houndstooth Embossing Folder. I wrapped a piece of Sky Blue American Seam Binding around it.

I assembled the card as shown. The backing paper is from a 6 x 6 pad from Paper Cellar. I looped some Baker's Twine from the Vintage Set and added a button from my stash. I edged with dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Summer Blue.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Another fabulous card, and i think its because i like a simple layout thats not bogged down with embellishments. This is a great stamp - is his bum sticking out?
