I'm still recovering from surgery, so here is another card I made and never posted on my blog. It was for my uncle's birthday which was in September 2014. It was actually one of my favorite cards that I had ever made up to that point, because I thought it was so funny. I combined products from several companies to put it together. The sentiment came from The Cat's Pajamas. It was all one stamp but I divided it up into the two parts on the front of the card in the clouds and one part on the inside. They have a lot of funny sentiments available. Another funny one in this set says, "You're NOT getting older. You're getting a LOT older." The cute dog came from Paper Smooches. I thought the look on the dog's face was perfect- like he was looking at someone and talking to them. This set has a great wiener dog stamp in it! I made the background using Distress Inks. It was my first time to try and blend them. They are definitely a product that I want to spend more time playing with and learning how to use. Maybe while I'm still recovering from surgery, I can watch some YouTube videos on them! My Favorite Things made the die that cut my sky into a "wonky" shape. I used a "Word Bubble" Framelit from Stampin' Up to make my clouds. So many companies have so many great products. Don't ever be afraid to mix and match them so you can get your project to turn out the way you want it!
So what makes this card so funny? Why is it one of my favorites? It was the rest of the stamp that was featured on the inside of the card. "Know what you are getting for your birthday?"
Ha! The actual sentiment said, "Older" but I just inked the first three letters so it said, "Old." Luckily, he thought it was funny, too, and didn't disown me as his niece!
