I thought I'd throw this one in today. Kathryn selected it from my box to give to her boyfriend for his birthday - I think it was the sentiment that did it. Anyway, I thought I'd better blog it before I completely forget what I used to make it!
Faded Jeans Distress Ink and the other side I ran through the Grand Calibur with the Heavy Duty Couture Creations Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Faded Jeans using Cut n Dry Foam and then hid the join by wrapping some Blue/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around it.
I stamped the Tea Clipper using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Denim Lilac Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Card Creator Distressed Edges and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.
Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cobalt around the edges.

Good morning Julia this is a great card for the men your daughter's boyfriend should be very pleased with it. BTW the Country Park that your daughter wrote about in her blog is just up the road from where I live. There is a farm museum there as well and my daughter used to volunteer there. It is a very nice place to go we are very lucky to have it close by. Enjoy today I hope you are having a bit of a rest. JackieReplyDelete
